I am sure I speak for a lot of people when I say that I would love to be able to fully synch, backup, and in general tether the blackberry to parallels. Right now, I connect the usb to parallels. I then load up the desktop manager and if I want to load software onto my blackberry, I then unplug the usb cable from the blackberry, plug it back in, and start the process. Then while the applications are being loaded I push buttons on the blackberry so it keeps the connection to the usb port completely alive. I then pray that the device finishes what it needs to do. I call this whole process magic voodoo.
