Blackberry sync on Mac - thank god for gmail contacts

I tried to sync my blackberry contacts with my Mac address book contacts today using the not so long ago released software for this, and I have to say that RIM has some work to do here yet. Thankfully I have my contacts stored in my gmail account cause the sync made a mess and a half of my blackberry AND my mac address book. I can understand that this isn't the easiest thing to get right, but when my email fields say SMTP instead of the actual email address for many contacts, I think the software is unusable. Data loss in this type of application is not acceptable. I'm sure there is some perfectly logical explanation of how this happened, but sorry guys, I am just an end user and I was just running your software. Let's just say that this is a great way to motivate Mac users to buy an iPhone instead of a Blackberry when the next upgrade moment comes. Hope you can fix it before then.

Now back to fixing my address book, I am at 'J' and have been at it for a while now.........
