    I dont think you can sync it with OSX mate. I might be wrong though, try contacting http://www.rim.com these are the guys who design the Blackberry.

    I've also asked one of my field specialists (he sells Blackberry) and he said as far as he is aware its not OSX compatible.

    I've just had it confirmed. To my understanding the blackberry does not sync with your desktop like a palm or a pocket pc handheld would. Instead the corporate version syncs with exchange and the consumer version does not sync at all.

    if this information turns out to be specious, please let me know
