    There are two programs that I know of. One is missing Sync. I tried it and could never get it to work right. The other is pocketmac. I just got pocketmac and I'm having a couple issues but it works better than missing sync and its free. Hope this helps.

    It depends what software you're using. From what I've read, Missing Sync is better if your using OS 10.4+...if you're using 10.3+, then PocketMac will work better. I use PocketSync and it works decently.

    There's a rumored post somewhere around here stating BB is working on making a Desktop for Mac!! *keeping fingers crossed*

    You will be able to sync it if you purchase Missing Sync.

    i personally use Google Sync services to sync my calendar with Google Calendars... i only use missing sync for BB for syncing my address book and note pad.

    i then use spanning sync to get my ical and google calendar to sync... this way my google calendar is the most up to date it can be without it be necessary to plug in.
