I have downloaded the new desktop software and attempted to sync with my Bold 9000. I am on a mac book and have operating system 10.6.1. When I did the first sync it wiped the contacts from my Bold and now when I try and sync the contacts I get this message
Persistent store migration failed, missing source managed object model.
The I just get a sync failed try again message.
It works with itunes but not contacts or ical

I now have it working :-)
I uninstalled BB desk top manager - literallly every file on the Mac with Blackberry in it. I even typed Blackberry into the finder to make sure I had all the files. I then did a battery pull on my Bold, reinstalled desktop manager on my mac and my contacts are back :-)
I will not be plugging my Bold in again until a new version of the software is released and all of the teething problems have gone.

Fortunately, I "did" back mine up first.
One good back-up application is "Google Sync." You can do a search on it using "google sync blackberry." It's an app which syncs your contact information with an existing Google e-mail account.
Anyway, I couldn't sync from Google Sync either after synching with Desktop Manager. It completely trashed my ability to sync contacts. So, I wiped my phone, uninstalled and reinstalled DTM, tried to sync again, and was able to. One problem was it doubled about 50% of my contacts. So, I had to go through one at a time to erase some of them. On top of that, some of them are not erasable. That seems to be a problem with any number of Blackberry models and OS's syncing with Macs (using any number of syncing platforms).
To make a long story short, wiping the phone made me be able to sync my contacts again, but there are some contacts on the phone I simply cannot erase.

Contacts do not display in address book on blackberry, but are there for recognition on incoming calls.
Each address book group displays empty and searches from phone record are blank as if there is no record.
But if you highlight and click on record, it is there.
Phone worthless unless you remember number or caller was recent.
A not so smart smartphone.
Have tried everything including loading desktop address book to phone... nothing
