8330/Pocketmac crashing

I am sorry if this has been posted previously; I searched and searched, and no one seems to have had this problem. I am beginning to question my sanity, and my blackberry/mac union!


I have a BB8330 and a macbook pro. I have installed pocketmac and followed what I THINK are the correct instructions, but periodically it just crashes. I will sync fine one moment, but the next time, it just goes on and on forever (4+ hours) and never completes. I do not get an error message. I end up having to cancel. My entries may or not be synced. Sometimes they are odd, either corrupted, duplicated, or changed in some way, making it largely unreliable. I try to sync only one aspect of my software at a time, i.e. just the calendar, or just the address book. I am not using any third party software, just the stuff that came with my mac/blackberry.


One wierd thing I have noticed is that my pocketmac software version is Version 1.2 (1.4), but I have downloaded and installed version 4.1.25. I have tried several times to contact pocketmac support to no avail. Of course Verizon, my carrier, can't help me either...


Any suggestions would be MOST appreciated.
