    There are programmes that allow you to use windows software on macs, see the section on the forum for Macs. I use BBSAK for third party app back up and wiping, Cod removal. I also use maxmem OTA direct to device for all the junk you don't usually use removal. And loading OS, ShrinkAOS, data backup/restore DM5.

    Happy Stripping.

    Finally decided to dive into it, shrunk it a little bit, memory usage at its peek was 255 on 448. [Never shrunk the OS.] Did a few reboots to primarily see if my apps were there, seems to be working fine. Do not know how to fully shrink the OS, but once I do get the hang of it I will probably see an even better boost. So far, so good though.

    Love it! That's what seperates BB from all the other platforms

    Since Windows is favored by RIM and BlackBerry programs in general, the best way to use your Mac for BlackBerry programs is to utilize the ability to install Windows 7 OS on your Mac. There is a program that works great and you will be able to install Windows on your Mac and won't every have to worry about compatibility again. Keep in mind that you will be able to switch from Windows OS to Mac OS. Here is the program I'm talking about... Mac 101: Using Windows on your Mac via Boot Camp

    Here is what Apple says on their site:
    It runs Windows, too.

    Have a Windows application you need to use once in a while? No problem. Every new Mac lets you install and run Windows at native speeds, using a built-in utility called Boot Camp.
    Setup is simple and safe for your Mac files. After you’ve completed the installation, you can boot up your Mac using either Mac OS X or Windows. (That’s why it’s called Boot Camp.) Or if you want to run Windows and Mac applications at the same time — without rebooting — you can install Windows using VMware or Parallels software.*
