"incorrect version number"

July 24, 2012  |  By BradMacPro

At least they are still trying to support the Mac before they go out of business.

Cons

Who still uses a BlackBerry?

Summary

The download offered (Of BlackBerry Desktop Software for Mac) currently (as of 7/23/12) is version 2.4.0.16.

"No it doesn't work"

December 07, 2011  |  By rohross

 |  Version: BlackBerry Desktop Manager 2.2.1.7

Pros

None until it works

Cons

It can't find the Mac Address Book. Either this is Apple's fault (ie. they're trying to ring fence Address Book to only synch with the icloud) or BB's fault (it can't find the right directory). I think I'll fiddle with my Mac's permissions, but I din't think that will help.

"I cannot sync my devices now!"

November 18, 2011  |  By ErinC8

 |  Version: BlackBerry Desktop Manager 2.2.1.7

Pros

Easy to install

Cons

I don't know if it is iCloud or the new Blackberry software update, but I now cannot sync my calendars and contacts between my Mac and Blackberry! I have spent several hours on the phone with AppleCare and they cannot find a solution. I don't even know how I could contact Blackberry. Aaagh!

"RIM's best inducement to buy an iPhone"

November 18, 2011  |  By SimonSeven

 |  Version: BlackBerry Desktop Manager 2.2.1.7

Pros

East to install

Cons

Doesn't work

Summary

On my Mac, Desktop Manager can't even see iCal much less sync it. It won't back up my phone and it only pretends to sync my contacts (everything looks good until you check your BB and the contacts haven't updated). The worst of it is, this software used to work and RIM has messed it up.

"Abysmal is right!"

October 26, 2011  |  By rhv94

 |  Version: BlackBerry Desktop Manager 2.2.0.17

Pros

There are no pros to this upgrade. Don't do it if you have a Mac!

Cons

After i upgraded and synced my BB to iCal, it made duplicates and triplicates of entires. Had to restore iCal from Time Capsule to get the calendar back to where it was before the sync, but now BB still has the duplicates and triplicates of entries, with no easy way to get rid of them!

Summary

Loved my BB until the worldwide crash, then this just put me over the edge! No benefit to me if I cannot sync my calendars. So ready to get an iPhone!

"Still a very poor attempt as a desktop manager"

July 27, 2011  |  By ken.rube441

 |  Version: BlackBerry Desktop Manager 2.1.1.7

Pros

Will sync and backup.

Cons

WILL NOT DO ONE WAY SYNC. Tends to kill data on BB.

Summary

Several years ago there was a third party desktop manager that worked well with BB & Mac. BB stopped them and came out with this junk. I use my phone less and less these days.

"Buggy and poorly tested"

June 14, 2011  |  By freshnet

 |  Version: BlackBerry Desktop Manager 2.0.1.14

Pros

The only thing I can think of is that it easily lets you see how much media space you've used

Cons

Difficult or impossible to sync, constantly uses up huge amounts of CPU while not doing anything. Doesn't handle importing or exporting media well at all.

Summary

I had this installed for a while for managing media, and I just had to get rid of it as it was so terrible. Every time I plugged my BB in, it would open, promptly spin up to nearly 100% CPU usage, and slow everything else down until I closed it. When it does work, it doesn't do what I want, as it doesn't provide a usable interface for syncing audio/video. The 'import media' option causes the program to hang every time I use it.
In short, if you have access to a PC you're better off using that, or Dropbox to transfer files from your BB to your Mac.

"Real piece of crap"

May 12, 2011  |  By larryr5

 |  Version: BlackBerry Desktop Manager 2.0.1.14

Pros

There are no positive aspects of this software.

Cons

Deletes stuff you don't want deleted from calendars it should have no access to.
Won't sync "One Way"

Summary

This software sucks. It used to be somewhat tolerable in that you could sync from your computer to your blackberry, but that option is gone. Now you have to create a special calendar for blackberry items for it to write to, and then it wants to delete anything that is not already on the blackberry. This has turned my blackberry into a pretty much useless piece of crap. It's a phone and does email, period. Good thing I have an iPhone for my personal device because the blackberry just sucks.
