    Maybe you should delete pocket mac. I think I read somewhere else in this forum that somebody else had an issue until they deleted it.

    I also had pocket mac and deleted it (before installing the DTM). No problems so far...

    DM freezes for me too when syncing my Entourage calendar. I have to "Force Quit". I don't have Pocket Mac installed. I'm unimpressed with this application so far.

    I had this problem, among others with DM. I uninstalled it and installed Missing Sync, which gave me a message that I had to reset my sync history in Mac's iSync. I did that, and the error messages stopped. Don't know if that will help. I'm going to stay with Missing Sync until I have some confidence that DM has the bugs worked out. My data is too valuable to gamble with. I'd rather pay for something that works, than something free that doesn't.

    I had problem syncing my calendar and contacts...I also have a mobileme account so what I did was open MobileMe sync preference, then uncheck the "synchronize with MobileMe" box. Only then was I able to sync calendar and contacts successfully with my iCal and Addressbook using the BB DM for Mac.

    well, i have to say that i must be the first one who had success syncing my calendar and contacts.

    i paid $40 for missing sync and it never worked!!! every single time i tried to sync my bb, i would always get an error message for my calendar. for some reason, i could never sync my calendareverything worked fine but my calendar. it was frustrating because i tried to speak with tech support and nothing helped me. good thing i spent $40, right? ugh.

    anyway, i was thrilled when dm for mac finally came out and downloaded it last night and synced my bb this morning. as far as i can tell, everything synced successfully. thank goodness, a sync app that actually...i don't know...syncs? yay.

    my only question iswhich i believe is what makes dm unique from these other appsi know the huge advantage of having a dm for mac now is you can back up your apps, themes, etc. so when i clicked on the "applications" tab, it brought up everything on my bb, then do i click start? what does that do exactly? does it back it up to my computer like the dm for windows??? i only ask because my previous curve died on me about 5 months ago and i lost everything because dm wasn't out for mac yet, so i want to make sure to back this stuff up properly just in case.

    thanks!

    Actually you aren't the only one with success, but success depends on a number of things (like other software, OS, what you are trying to sync, etc)....as far as backing up, DM4Mac does a fine job of complete back-up of your device. I have done it 7 or 8 times and every time it completely restores the device.

    ok .. just so you know, I finally did get the calendar to sync BUT I had to MERGE which duplicated appointments and I had to click the choice that only does events 14 days prior and 90 days after .. otherwise it just hangs

    Not very impressed with this at all
