Sync iCloud enabled iCal and address book to BlackBerry handhelds

Posted on November 6th, 2011 in BlackBerry, dotmac & MobileMe | 14 Comments »


All of you have noticed it is not possible to sync your BlackBerry handhelds with your Mac after upgrading to iCloud anymore.
First thing you may need to consider, Apple will not provide with a solution to this problem, why? Because they actually prefer you to buy an iPhone,
Second thing to know, BlackBerry will not provide with a solution (unless they release a new version of their BlackBerry Desktop Software) because this problem is caused by a third party application.

Well, here is a workaround provided by MacAmour in order to sync your devices anyway.
Just follow these four steps:

  1. Open your System Preferences panel and go to iCloud:
  2. Disable Address Book and iCal sync by unselecting them
  3. Start BlackBerry Desktop Software and you’ll notice it is possible to sync your BlackBerry with address book and iCal again
  4. Don’t forget to re-enable the services your disabled in step 2.

Quick Tip: BlackBerry Desktop Software is unable to detect the BlackBerry smartphone on Mac

Posted on April 3rd, 2011 in BlackBerry | 2 Comments »

If the BlackBerry Desktop Software is unable to detect the BlackBerry smartphone when the Mac computer is booted into Mac OS X 10.6 64-bit mode then, the solution would be to restart Mac OS X and boot into 32-bit mode for the BlackBerry Desktop Manager to successfully detect the BlackBerry smartphone.

Note: If Mac OS X boots using the 64-bit kernel by default, you can start up with the 32-bit kernel by holding the 3 and 2 keys during startup.

To determine if the system is running in 64-bit, perform one of the following steps:

  1. Open System Profiler.
  2. Under Contents, highlight Software.
  3. Reference the System Software Overview.
  4. If 64-bit Kernel and Extensions is set to Yes, then 64-bit mode is enabled.
