    You will need to download it to your laptop and then unzip the file. Once you have done that you will need to use desktop manager to install it.

    I am at work right now but will find you the download link as soon as I get home and walk you through the process if need be.

    Here is a list of links for the BBM. They are suppose to be OTA (over the air) so you can download them via you Blackberry Browser. If that doesn't work down load the zip file to you laptop.

    As long as the Pearl is running a 4.5 OS it should work. I could try it on my father in laws later today and let you know.

    OTA stands for Over The Air and its a way to downloads programs to your phone straight on your BlackBerry Browser without using a computer.

    I have a buddy with a pearl on 4.5.1xx. I don't know what the last two are. His runs perfect. I think you have to have at least 4.5.131 to run it on any bb.

    I have an Alltel Pearl 8130 with 4.5.0.169 (their latest) and have been using the new BBM 5 with no problems or issues. I have also been helping all my friends with Blackberries (Pearls and Curves)and sofar everyone who has gotten it hasn't had any issues.

    Did you have to load bbm 5.0 with the computer? Or is there an OTA file for it?

    Are you clicking the link from your Blackberry browser? I just clicked the 5.0 link for the Bold and it's downloading OTA fine on mine.
