PocketMac

Is anyone aware of a better sync software for Mac than PocketMac? It's just not working very well for me.

Re: PocketMac

I have sent emails to various BB email / forum addresses, but it's like Mac users is not a big priority for them.

Mac users are kind of being in the same boat with Linux users.

Re: PocketMac

Currently, Pocketmac is the only supported syncronization method with BlackBerry devices through RIM.

 

Would help to know what problems your having. Pocketmac is primarly designed to syncronize your organizer data, and if theres a problem there, provide your enviroment and specific issue, there is usually a solution.

Well, I've a Curve 8300 and failed to sync with my PowerBook G4 (Mac OS 10.4.11) using PocketMac Version 1.0.9. Used both USB cable and Bluetooth method for syncing but failed and failed. All I get is Error to Sync Your Devices message all the way. How about that?

Re: PocketMac

Bluetooth isn't supported by Pocketmac (sorry) so don't even try.   What application are you trying to sync to on the Mac?  If Entourage, is it 2008?

Yes, Entourage 2008 is a no-go.

Re: PocketMac

 Entourage is not supported by the current version of Pocketmac. You can try Synchronizing with Address Book and Ical and will likely be successful.
