    "incorrect version number"

    July 24, 2012  |   By BradMacPro

    Version: BlackBerry Desktop Manager 2.3.1.6

    Pros

    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 7, 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.
