    You gotta use Windows or OTA for upgrades.

    Go to OpenSourceMac dot org (I can't post a link because my account is too new, lol)

    There is a free windows emulator there that SHOULD work for blackberry updates (it should allow you to install/run desktop manager)

    I'd try that before paying for an emulator.

    if you have leopard you should have bootcamp just search in finder
    ....if you have tiger you can download it...its free, you just need to find a full windows OS, not the reboot kind or upgrade, a full CD....which can be found at university stores for around $10 or else retail for around $99....i went with XP, cause vista is not as good, from my experience as a mac user


    (i am not instigating any mac vs. pc arguements......this is the last post that shall say anything about both of the operarting systems at once )

    Go the bootcamp route instead of emulators if you can. With BC, U will also need to install full windows.
