MAC OS X 10.4.11

Is it possible to connect a BlackBerry Curve 8520 to a Mac Mini running OSX 10.4.11 via Bluetooth or USB in order to use the Minis connection to the web without having the Desktop Manager? If so, Could somebody please walk me through the steps because I'm obviously missing a step. Thanks.

Re: MAC OS X 10.4.11

I have no answer but a similar question..


I also have a Mac OS X 10.4.11. I was trying to download the desktopmanager 1.0 but it keeps saying i'm not updated. My mac is a bit too old (the requirement is 10.5.smth) so what do i do? Is there an older version  of the manager for Mac users with older macs? This one is only 2-3 years old and works well i'm not about to get a new one! 


Thanks for answering people!

Re: MAC OS X 10.4.11

BlackBerry Desktop Manager requires 10.5.5 or higher, there isn't a version of it that supports 10.4.x


An older version of PocketMac (ver 4.x) or the current version of Missing Sync for BlackBerry (2.0.x) are the sync options for 10.4.x users.
