    Anybody know any way of getting a BlackBerry Curve 9320 to sync with my PPC Tiger machines? iSync doesn't appear to like it so I was wondering if anybody knew of alternative ways?

    There used to be 3rd party apps to connect unsupported devices in isync. I forget the name of the program I used back in the day but it probably wouldn't support a newer BlackBerry like the 9320 anyways.

    What about skipping isync and using the BlackBerry desktop manager?

    Was the BB Desktop Manager ever available for PowerPC?

    I used to use one for Pocket PC and my G4 iMac millions of years ago...don't know whether they have a combo still relevant to your setup?

    The Missing Sync for BlackBerry did indeed run on PowerPC including OS X Tiger so check it out. As for BlackBerry Desktop Manager, I know that it did not work on Tiger but I believe older versions ran on PPC when running Leopard. This however hinges on whether the old copies of the software would even work with a Curve 9320!

    I'm not sure what the last PPC compatible version was.

    2.3 is PPC compatible I believe, though I'm not sure about 2.3 and your phone.

    MissingSync is the program I used way back when.

    Despite the kinda ridiculous £40 price, MissingSync appears to be my only viable choice. Thanks for your input everyone. :)

    Let us know if it works well with your BlackBerry as I am quite curious!

    It doesn't work haha. The damn thing keeps on failing to sync. Looks like my G4 and Curve are just not meant to be. :(

    try that. It actually sort of worked with my note 3. I appears MTP mode is dodgy on ppc. Good luck!
    Oh, app is XNJB
