I remember hearing about this product awhile back but I then realized we have never actually mentioned it on BerryReview. Greg & Remzi also let me know that it has been improved in recent versions to make the app more responsive. viaDock lets you control your BlackBerry from your PC whether it is a Mac or Windows machine.
The $39.99 price tag is pretty pricey but there are no real competitors other than the $99/year Bayalink Liberty since Rove Mobile stupidly took their free viewer off the market. This might be the closest you get to having BlackBerry messenger on your PC without RIM releasing a client. on Impatica’s website at this link. They even have a version for car dash docking stations which would let you use your BlackBerry with a big touchscreen.September 24, 2009 at 4:34 PM #181478
Can you actually use your keyboard to input text to your BB? It says it supports copy/paste but I am not sure you can actually type/respond to BB messenger etc., using your PC/Mac’s native keyboard..
Using BBmessenger on my Mac is worth the price alone, if it can actually do that.September 24, 2009 at 6:03 PM #181479
Yes, you can actually use your large computer keyboard to input text into any application on the BlackBerry.
Feel free to call Impatica Customer Support if you have questions on this application: 800-548-3475 x:238September 24, 2009 at 9:13 PM #181480

Would be awesome if it has as much functionality as the Nokia Suite. Direct sms/email creation and reading through the PC, add contacts, etc.September 28, 2009 at 5:42 PM #181483
@brian: are you using an official or unofficial operating system on your phone? what third party apps are installed? are you still running the official blackberry messenger or the recently leaked 5.x series? what version of desktop manager is installed?
i’m just curious because i am having the exact same problem!!!
i have an 8320 (t-mobile) curve unning unofficial os 188.8.131.52 (254) with a few third party apps (bb appworld, cbs news, buzzme, qsms, accuweather, fox news and quick pull). pretty minimal imo, about half of those are “push”. it is booting with about 16mb free. i tried impatica viadock with dm 4.7.x and 184.108.40.206.
so far, no luck. i’ve been talking to support, hopefully we will get a workaround soon!September 28, 2009 at 5:43 PM #181484
oh, and i am running the leaked bbm 5.0!October 8, 2009 at 8:24 PM #181485
All I can tell you guys is that this is like a dream come true for me. Had exactly this app years ago on the SE P series phones and have missed in badly on my various Berries. It is just wonderful, simple as that.
