Re: Impossible to sync calendar with Mac OS X 10.8.5 Mavericks

Hi and Welcome to the Community!


This seems to be a problem created by Apple...refer:

  • Article ID: KB35311 BlackBerry Desktop Software and Mac OS X Mavericks
  • Article ID: KB18769 System requirements to install and use BlackBerry Desktop Software on a Mac computer

Good luck!

Re: Impossible to sync calendar with Mac OS X 10.8.5 Mavericks

I have a Blackberry Z10 running laterst Blackberry OS. My MAC is running Maverick OS 10.9.5.

I followed the link to the referenced articles. 


Apple has the following under Sync Services:


SyncServices is included as a framework in OS X Mavericks 10.9.3 and later. It is used to synchronize the following data:

  • Contacts and Calendars with iOS devices connected over USB (using iTunes 11.2 or later)

I cannot sync my calendar or my contacts on my Z10 with my laptop (iCal and Contats). Does anybody out there have any ideas on what is preventing this from happening and what I can do to fix it?
