    I dont have a mac, nor an 8100, but I just wanted to join in the celebration! I think this is good news for 8100 mac users.

    Were you able to get Tasks to sync properly?

    What were you using before the BB?

    Trying to sync Treo 650 to MAC, to then sync with BB 8100.

    Had to manual move each contact from MAC to 8100....

    hexcr03, lets set the record straight here...you sent me the released version...which is the beta....it's version 4.0.17...if you have otherwise, then it's not the same thing you sent me....care to double check? thanks.

    Those worked for me with 10.4.8 without a problem. Still no luck with Tasks/ToDos
    though. You have any luck with those?

    I'm confused, i downloaded it from RIM, but then it says PocketMac SyncManager 1.0. is this the right one...cuz I STILL can't sync my pearl!

    Wheeeew, almost. Syncing each service one by one (only calendar, only tasks) seemed to work, although it required re-plugging the Pearl in each time. Hand exported (copy & paste) Palm notes to Entourage, then when the Entourage sync kept crashing PocketMac, copied those by hand into Stickies. 80% of notes and contacts went through; I'm resigned to hand re-entering the others. Still haven't tried email, etc., nor do I think I'll try this again for a little while.

    apparently there's a trick to syncing the pearl using PocketMac.
    1. Launch PocketMac
    2. Plug BB Pearl into USB port
    3. click the sync button.

    It must be done in this order to get any results at all.
