Older versions of Blackberry Desktop Software for Mac (OS 10.4)

Are older versions of the Blackberry desktop software for Mac still available? If so, where?

Re: Older versions of Blackberry Desktop Software for Mac (OS 10.4)

Hello tricksailing and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.

 

The first version of the Desktop Software for Mac required OSX 10.5 or higher. 

 

Since your Mac is running OSX 10.4.1, there is no Desktop Software version from BlackBerry available for you.

 

Hope this answers your question.

Re: Older versions of Blackberry Desktop Software for Mac (OS 10.4)

How about BlackBerry Desktop Software for a

MAC running OS 10.5.8?

 

I can't seem to find any legacy versions of the BlackBerry Desktop Software for Playbooks.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

thanks

Re: Older versions of Blackberry Desktop Software for Mac (OS 10.4)

Hi HMthePirate,

 

Thank-you for your response.

 

I do realize the latest version onf the software requires Mac os 10.6 or later, but very recent previous versions were compatable with 10.5 (as per recent 2012 articles pointing users to the BB site).

 

As a new Playbook purchaser, I need to find a previous version of the Desktop Software. I see on the boards there are others in the same situation.

 

Please - is there any way to acquire previous versions of the Desktop software for Mac OS 10.5, only *recently* superceded by the new edition offered on the BB site?

 

Many thanks

DC
