Correct Software

Hi- two part question:

how do i identify which BB Pearl I have?

Bigger question: I have a mac and need to download the correct software, under the 'software' section of the BB website, there is about 20 'desktop software' versions and then a handfull of product specific downloads, including one for the 8120.  Im not sure if my phone is an 8120.


Basically, can someone tell me what i need t download in order to connect my pearl to a mac and sync my entourage contacts and calendar, and then charge the phone?  thanks!

Re: Correct Software

1. Look under the battery on the white sticker... "BlackBerry 8xxx" ?


Get the version name PocketMac, ver 4.1



That will do it.
