Installation/Connection
  • If you are running OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard, when you connect your smartphone or tablet to the BlackBerry Desktop Software, you receive an error message indicating that the BlackBerry Device Manager wants to use confidential information stored in your keychain. If you select Always Allow, when you disconnect and reconnect your device, you will receive the error message again.

  • After upgrading from a previous version of the BlackBerry Desktop Software, the phone number for the Apple Assistant in your contacts switches fields although you didn't make that change.
  • If you connect a BlackBerry smartphone that is running BlackBerry Device Software 4.1 or lower to the BlackBerry Desktop Software, you don't receive a message that the smartphone is unsupported.
  • Some configurations, such as updating your media card size, aren't displayed when you connect your smartphone.

As OS X 10.9 Mavericks doesn't support Sync Services anymore, you'll need to use BlackBerry Link instead to sync contacts or other stuff.

CAUTION - This update (2.0.1) removed the ability to sync with iTunes. I have a Blackberry Bold 9000. After this update it tells me I have no media card installed so it cannot sync music. Media Card? It has a Sim card and the option is checked for any media files. This worked fine before the upgrade. Whatever improvements there may be (I did not notice any), loosing music was not OK with me. I am looking for a download of the last version, anyone know where I can find it?

FINALLY WORKS IN 64-BIT MODE! JUST PERCHANCE I downloaded and installed this update and rebooted while still in 64-bit mode and plugged in my Bold 9700. MUCH to my surprise, in the lower left of the window there was the words displayed; "Connecting..." Boom! It popped up as connected, I clicked Sync and, guess what? It SYNC'D! Now there's NO reason to boot in 32-bit mode... awesome!

I have a new macbook pro and this software doesn't support Mac OS X 64 bit. I want to do the sync between my blackberry and my mac but don't want to turn my system into 32 bit. Is there a way to do it or do i need to wait a new version of this software?

Even when i own a blackberry curve and have the BBDM basically, every App and every programme RIM has launches is failed always crashes and always stops in the middle of backing-up my BB. Hope they can find the write solution for these problems and fix it.

This version is a big pile of trash as far as I am concerned. Takes forever to sync, took 20 minutes to delete an app from my BB, offered to delete all the calendar entries on my Mac. Version 1.0.4 was working so beautifully. Why oh why did I upgrade?

A whole new version number for a visual overhaul? It still works fine for me but, besides it looking nicer, I haven't noticed any change more than being able to import media from the BlackBerry to sync with iTunes/iPhoto- which is kind of nifty, anyway.

Hallelujah! Finally success after a number of false starts with versions up to 1.0.3. Every time I tried it in the past, the sync would fail and my Storm 9550 would get erased. So why did I keep trying every time a new version came out? Because Missing Sync for Blackberry was so dodgy it was taking years off my life troubleshooting when some new crap would happen every week. So now my BlackBerry and I are happy.

This link currently only downloads version 1.0.2 from the Blackberry site. This would be a problem on the site developer's end.

I am thrilled that we finally have a decent BlackBerry syncing solution on the Mac. PocketMac was terrible, and so was Missing Sync; both have a long history of deleting and corrupting information and of randomly throwing up errors. Admittedly, at its worst, BlackBerry Desktop Manager is no better; lots of people have been reporting these same kinds of problems with it. But at its best, it works well for syncing, and it also brings in the abilities of the Windows BDM that the other Mac syncing products have lacked: backing up and restoring your phone, and managing applications installed on it. Before using this software, read some comments and troubleshooting tips about it on BlackBerry discussion forums. (For example, "http://forums.crackberry.com/f62/".) And then make a backup of your Mac's Address Book (export it to a file), and use this software to make a backup of your BlackBerry, so you have something to revert to if things don't go well. When I first tried to sync, it simply errored out and said that the sync failed. But after some finagling and trial-and-error, now I've got syncs running smoothly. I'm happy with this software for now, and I hope that RIM fixes a lot of bugs in subsequent versions!
