How-To: Sync iTunes Playlists With a BlackBerry

Blackberry Logo

I recently switched from an iPhone (s aapl) to a BlackBerry (s rimm). As I mentioned before, one of my BlackBerry dislikes is that it simply does not sync as nicely as the iPhone. Until recently, I thought I could only drag certain songs onto my BlackBerry and that there was no way to sync playlists. Turns out I was wrong, and the solution is provided by BlackBerry itself.

Below I have outlined how to transfer your iTunes playlists to your BlackBerry. This method also allows you to easily send podcasts to your phone, and the software described even has the “Automatically fill free space” option that was originally seen on the iPod shuffle.

  1. Download and Install BlackBerry Media Sync for Mac
  2. Fire up BlackBerry Media Sync
  3. Select the playlists you would like on your BlackBerry
  4. Click “Sync Device”
