Re: wanted to install the blackberry device on my mac??

BlackBerry device CD that comes with your BB does not work on MAC. You need to download a program called PocketMac 4.1 from BlackBerry.com.


With the MAC program, you can sync calender, contacts, task, notes from your email client, load applications.


But features that comes with Desktop Manager (in the CD) like BackUp/Restore, Media Manager and email settings not available on PocketMac.

If I've been helpful please consider giving me kudos. Please remember to resolve your thread .
