Was on phone with at&t (three transfers) last night. On phone with at&t today for 40 minutes, they transferred me to RIM. Now onto 2nd RIM person for 118 minutes as I type. No resolution. Several clearing data. Now wiping. Anyone find anything yet?!?!

Where are you getting the download from? The link from the original Crackberry post leads to a page state the file has been removed.
How long does it typically take for RIM to provide the official release?

MAC OS X 10.6.4
Address Book 5.0.2 (870)
BB Desktop Manager 1.0.4 (Build 10)
BB 6 OS on the Torch 9800
I was trying to import my calendar, contacts, notes, tasks, etc. from my old Treo 680 to my new BB Torch via a Mac. I used "The Missing Synch" software to convert this data onto a Mac and then tried to use the BB Desktop Manager (ver 1.0.4 [Build 10]) to get the data onto my Torch. Once I got my iCalendar cleaned up (It took several tries to get my calendar to appear correctly because I had some duplicate events on the Treo and my iCalendar), I was easily able to get this info over to the Torch. However, I got the following error message with the Address Book:
The Address Book database cannot be accessed for synchronization.
For help resolving this issue, refer to KB19454 in the BlackBerry Desktop Manager Knowledge Base.
Well, if you go to that reference, you get answers that appear to work for other phones, but not for BB 6 OS. It wasn't until I did a search in the BB Technical Solution Center on the exact error message (The Address Book database . . .) that I found the solution. A reference to KB23925 reveals that you need to update BB messenger on your Torch and then synch. That worked fine, although I'm disappointed to see that my groups didn't export at all.
I wish I had seen Java4Life's post on an earlier search. I hope this post saves someone the hour or so that it took me to figure this out.

I think that the other KB article has now been updated. Sync'ing contacts now works for me on OS X 10.5.6.
Steps I took:
I have not tried turning back on wireless. Can anyone confirm that the wireless sync works after getting the desktop manager to sync manually?

My Torch is not syncing with Mac's address book contacts.
I've tried everything..Closest solution was someone who said 'paste single line info into Terminal."
It worked. Who are you? Can you run the solution again please as I deleted your advise like a foo'.
