    plus- the entire user manual is on the disc that comes with the phone that is PC only. fantastic.

    I've got a Pearl that I really like but the sync'ing options for the Mac just blow. I tried the RIM software for the Mac - just unusable. I'm currently using Missing Sync but I've got a pretty low opinion of it. I cross my fingers every time I click the sync button - I get errors, duplicate records, duplicate data within records, deleted records re-appearing. Garbage.
    I'm a recent Mac switcher (been about 4 months - and loving it) and I've used the the RIM desktop manager on WinXP - it works flawlessly, perfectly, every time.

    I've got to wonder why RIM can't produce the same software for the Mac?

    I like my Mac more than my Pearl so I'll put up with it. I bought the Pearl before the Mac, if I were searching for a smart phone now there's no way I'd buy the Pearl.

    Enough with the rant. :-)

    I was thinking of going with a Blackberry, specifically the 8830 World Series, but then I decided on the MotoQ.

    It's cheaper, and it's better for my needs.
