    Default What software do we use on the mac to make phone updates?

    I get my phone at some point today, and I want to put on .75 if and when verizon releases it. The only software I can find for the mac is "Pocket Mac"... Is that right? What else would I need? I plan on getting the Missing Sync software for syncing etc, but I just want an app that will get updates from RIM/Verizon for the phone itself.

    Thanks!!! Hoping to get a good Storm today

    As of right now, you don't. You can either do it OTA, or you are forced to use crappy windows to do it with.

    Blackberry Desktop Manager will do the trick. You can run it in bootcamp.

    You need Desktop Manager 4.7 on Windows. I use VMWare Fusion with Windows XP on my MacBook Pro... works fine. You can download Desktop Manager from the BlackBerry website under "Support" then "Downloads" or from the Verizon CD that comes with the Storm. Hopefully RIM will soon have something like Desktop Manager for the Mac that allows all the functionality the PC version has.

    You like BootCamp? I would rather be able to boot windows up and run it natively withing Leopard. I know it isn't as fast as it would be with BootCamp, but parallels for me!
