    Pocket Mac is free and can install themes and apps. Some of the themes > here < have zipped desktop installation files.

    Connect your BB to the computer.
    Open Pocket Mac.
    Click the BlackBerry button.
    Go to the menu: Utilities > Install Software to Device.

    Pocket Mac is way slower at synching than Missing Sync. The initial sync with lots of detailed contacts (1000+) will take several minutes. If Pocket Mac is stalling past that then something is wrong and you'll need to trouble shoot it.

    Without a data plan, I agree. With data you can install things OTA and use Google to sync... there's STILL no way to update or edit the device software from a Mac without running Windows though. Parallels, VMWare, BootCamp (or other dual boot or Windows Virtual Machine solution) all work fine, but without the Java apploader and/or Desktop manager, and with no data plan, you're going to find it difficult to upgrade and sync your blackberry with your Mac.

    I too just got a new mac and have a blackberry bold. I downloaded Pocketmac and tryed to sync phone and new mac. The contacts went through no problem but the calendar, notes and tasks will not sync. I would like to keep the mac with my blackberry as the pc never had issues synching...
    Can anyone help!?
