    Does anyone know whether there are any syncing issues between one of those Blackberry organisers and Mac. I have a PB 15" G4 and will be getting a Blackberry from work, so just want to now whether I can easily transfer contact details, calendars etc between the two.

    Any insights appreciated

    I don't believe that you're going to get it to sync with your Mac. All the software is Windows only, at least it was 6 months ago last time I looked. I suppose you could use VPC.

    There was limited compatability with email as well. We wanted the Blackberry to do POP, but Verizon was really dragging their feet (for well over a year) on getting that functional, so it only worked with Lotus Notes (which SUUUUUUUUUUUUX). Apparently it works with M$ Exchange as well.
