Re: how do i backup my phone pictures and contacts on my mac?

Start by downloading blackberry desktop software for Mac here http://us.blackberry.com/apps-software/desktop/desktop_mac.jsp

Complete the following steps to back up BlackBerry smartphone data:

  1. Connect your BlackBerry smartphone to your Mac computer.
  2. In the Applications folder of the Mac computer, click BlackBerry Desktop Software.
  3. Click the Back Up icon at the top of the screen.
  4. Perform one of the following actions:
    • To back up all data on the BlackBerry smartphone, click All data
    • To back up specific data, click Selected data and select the check box beside one or more databases
  5. If necessary, perform the following actions:
    • To encrypt the data on the BlackBerry smartphone, select the Encrypt backup file check box
    • To back up on-board device memory, select the Back up built-in media storage check box

      Note: To perform this task on your BlackBerry smartphone, mass storage mode must be turned on.

  6. Click Back Up.

Note: If you encrypted the data that was backed up, type a password when you are prompted.


This is information from the blackberry website on specific steps to back the phone up to a mac computer (http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=KB18776). Hope this helps.
