Running V10.5.8 on 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo on 20in iMac.
After installing the newly released BB Desktop for Mac & Sync'ing my BB Tour...... all of my contacts from my Mac address book were successfully imported in my BB contacts. However, now the "FIND" function within my BB contacts no longer functions. I have over 500 contacts & now how to manually scroll via trackball down thru the list to locate each name I'm looking for.
Additionally, when addressing mail I now have to manually type-in the email address the the "TO" & "CC" or "BCC" field since they too cannot find my contacts. Similar problem when searching for a contact when using the phone to search contacts.
I've tried uninstalling & re-installing the Desktop Mgr but still no help.
Anyone else having this problem?!
Grateful for any recommendations/solutions!

I have the same exact problem. I was using MIssing Sync which was pretty good. I went with the BB solution so I could upgrade my BB w/out a PC... but alas everything is now broken and I can't go back. With over 1600 contacts my unit is pretty much a brick for placing outgoing calls - I don't have that much time to scroll through my address book.
UPDATE: I uninstalled everything from my old Missing Sync install and reset synch services and went to the newest version of Missing Sync (2.0.3) in beta. It now works as it should.
I can only hope that the BB folks fix this in an upcoming version.

I have exactly the same problem, did you ever sort it out using BB desktop manager?
Did you end up buying Missing Synch?
Thanks for amy help, this is infuriating.

I had the same issue with the 'FIND' function for contacts with Phone, Email, SMS and MMS. I utilized the BB Desktop Manager to Sync my Mac and BB with my MS Entourage contacts.
Resolution: Goto Menu and select options / security options / security wipe / emails, contacts, etc. (ONLY). Once the process is complete, conduct a re-sync. This fixed the problem for me.
