I've been trying to get my Bold to work with my Mac with various success.
Success #1: Got it to work as a modem over bluetooth (used these instructions http://www.vimeo.com/963933, along with these to configure for rogers http://poormanstech.blogspot.com/2007/09/use-your-
Despite this success, I'm still having a couple of challenges:
Failure #1: Isn't coming up as a mass storage device.
Since I can't do #1, I tried to use bluetooth to send files, which leads too...
Failure #2: When I try to send a file from berry (Photo) to mac via blue tooth it fails.
Fialure #3: When I try to send a mp3 from mac to berry it fails.
Pocketmac and Missing Sync won't let me send mp3's to it, or sync photos as there is no micro SD in the unit.
Does anyone have any experience with bluetooth, blackberries and the Mac? I'm hoping to be able to get the file sharing working between the two so I can transfer photos back and forth.

I've been able to bluetooth pics from my mac to my bold but it seems sensitive to file size. In order to check to see if bluetooth is at least working, try a small file size (under 1mb) for testing. Also remember you need to be in the Media section of your Bold and select the "Receive Using Bluetooth" option first before initiating the send from the mac. btw, I'm assuming you have the devices successfully paired?

Interesting... my missing sync won't let me transfer photos and music. What version are you running?
Edit: Do you have a micro SD card in your machine?

I'm running 1.0.3 (75).
Yes, I have an 8GB Micro SD card in it.
Assuming you have a card, and if you haven't already done so, in Options > Memory you need the following settings:
- Media Card Support = On
- Enable Mass Storage Support = On
- Auto Enable Mass Storage Mode When Connected: = Yes
In missing synch prefs, it's a good idea to check Eject Card = On Quite and After Synch in order to avoid any media mount/dismount problems.
On the Bold also make the SD card the default storage location for your music/pictures/video.

I do have a card and have done all you said, and it tells me that the memory card is not available because the mass storage mode is in use. Any comment that could help me. Thanks in advance

- In the Preferences section of Missing Synch
- Check boxes for Eject Card 1) On Quit 2) After Sync
- It may still be mounted from previous use, you can also manually eject by clicking the Eject icon from the top right of the main screen
- Then try again
