    What exactly are you needing to know? There's two types of downloads-"over-the-air"(OTA),and through the desktop download manager,but like I say,what are you needing help with,exactly??

    lol. I was needing help with through the desktop downloads. I tried following instructions from another thread posted for someone else but it didn't work or I didn't follow the instructions correctly.

    Open the zip file the app came in to a locatioin on your copmuter.

    Plug in your BB and open Desktop Manager.

    Let the DM go through it's thing looking for updates and then syncing your bb.

    Once the syncing is done:

    1: Click on Application Loader
    2: Click Start under Add/Remove Applications
    3: Click on Browse and find the application you want to load.
    4: Click the application and then click NEXT
    5: Wait a while as the application is installed

    et voila... New Apps/Themes etc are installed on BB!

    See that's one of the problems I have. When I plug in my BB desktop manager I don't see the Add/Remove part on my manager. Do I not have the right manager installed? See this is why I am having troubles with this issue.

    When you open Desktop manager click on the app loader at the top left and once its open you will see an option again on the left to add programs.

    I don't think I have the BB desktop manager. I have the media sync. lol. My bad for wasting your time not providing the right info. I honestly thought they were the same.

    Not a problem. Go here and download either DM 4.5 or 4.6 stay away from 4.7 and we will start over and get you where you want to be.
