Can I transfer my .m4a files onto my Backberry Pearl?

I am about to get a Blackberry Pearl but want to know how I transfer all of the songs that I have bought from itunes onto the phone. Is there a software package? I have read that you can enable the media card to Mass Storage and it lets you transfer files from the mac, but I have not read anything about the native itunes files transfering from a Mac to the Blackberry.

 

Thanks Very Much for any advice.

Mass Storage Mode is an option for you at this point.

 

There is a software package (BlackBerry Media Sync), but only on PCs right now. The page says a Mac version is in development though

Here's a listing of the supported media formats: http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB05482

Thanks, It looks like the .m4a is supported on the device. If I use Mass Storage Mode and transfer the files onto the device guess I should still be able to play them...Hope so, because I am thowing out my piece of garbage Iphone today and trying to get a phone that actaully makes and recieves phone calls with some reliability.
