    Re: Hey

    To install an app with the desktop manager

    Here’s how:

    Download the app or program file to your PC:
    Connect your Blackberry to your computer.
    Open up Desktop Manager –> Application Loader –> Add.
    Find the file called “ProgramName.alx” and click “OK”.
    Let the Desktop manager do the rest.



    Hope this helps?

    Re: Hey

    Thanx archer, im really trying to get the most out of mine too! Everyone here has been a great help, despite the fact came here knowing next to nothing! Another quick question though - although I've been downloading applications, none of them seem to be on the required format for my BB. Is there anyway i can get around this little problem?

    Thanks again guys!

    Just a thought to share with you.

    BlackBerry was the last stop on the smartphone train for me, as I had tried Treo's, a Moto Q and found both of those platforms buggy, with instability, freezes and crashes etc. Besides I had not given BB much of a thought as my impression was they were too big and bulky. Then I saw the 7130c which was an attractive size and shape.

    I too, was very interested in loading some 3rd party software like Opera, when I first got mine. However like you I was brand new to the BlackBerry Platform, so I decided to set my impulses aside and learn the device first. Even though the BlackBerry menus are very easy to use, there is a lot to learn when switching to something new. You might want to "reframe" your approach and just enjoy learning and using it, as it came out of the box.

    I know that I'm glad I did, as now I have a completely different set of goals for mine.

    Cheers....

    Great advice, well put. I totally agree with that concept. It's very hard to do tho and ie: creates the famous Crackberry Addict is us all.

    Thanks srl7741 !

    You are so right, I'm already truly addicted to my BlackBerry's.

    I have become so obsessed with learning everything I can, as fast as I can that it has truly turned into an adventure. What a pleasure to buy a new phone that does everything you want and more. To buy a product that actually lives up to one's expectations. Pure Joy!

    Cheers..........
