    I am going to be getting a new Nextel soon and would like some feedback about how well the Blackberry plays with OS X. Does it integrate with Address Book, Mail, iCal, etc. If not, what software do I need to take advantage of the Blackberry features. (I don't consider using Windows or VPC to be an advantage ;) )

    I know Nextel, as a rule, does not support OS X. I am hoping that there may be some third party support for the Blackberry.

    Thanks for the link. That answers the OS X question. Now I just need to make sure a BlackBerry is what I need. :D

    I use that software to sync my blackberry and it works great, the only bad part is that the blackberry limits the use of syncing via bluetooth.

    What kind of limits? As long as I can iCal, Address Book and Mail, I'll be OK. Do these limits apply when syncing via USB?

    You can do everything through the usb cable but you just can't sync via bluetooth.
