BlackBerry smartphones come equipped with a mass storage mode that allows you to transfer files between your phone and your computer. Use the BlackBerry USB cable to make the connection and begin transferring your favorite music, video and picture files from your Mac.
Press the "Options" soft key on your BlackBerry. Navigate to the "Memory" entry and press "OK." Set the "Media Card" and "Mass Storage Mode" options to "On."
Attach one side of the USB cable to the USB port on the BlackBerry.
Connect the other side of the USB cable to one of the open USB ports on your Mac computer. After the Mac recognizes your phone, a storage drive icon associated with the BlackBerry's memory appears on the desktop.
Double-click the storage drive icon to access the BlackBerry's memory. Open the folder that contains the media files you want to transfer and drag them into the appropriate folder in the BlackBerry's window. For example, for MP3 files, drag the file into the Music folder. For pictures, drag the files into the Photos folder.
Wait for the progress bar to complete. Click on the storage drive icon and drag it onto the "Trash" icon on the dock. When the icon gets close, the "Trash" turns into a "Eject" icon. This cuts the connection between your Mac and your phone, making it safe to remove the USB cable.
