    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ if I understand how these phones work for a program to run on them they have to be a java based program. And limewire isn't. Its programmed to run on a computer, which is totally different than a phone. All of the networking settings and everything is entirely different. There's no possible way it could run. Unless limewire wrote a program specifically for phones.

    Correct me if I'm mistaken anywhere.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~nope, you hit it right on the nose, I'm waiting for someone to write a java/p2p network file sharing program. I would think they could sell it for 15 bucks and they would make a million dollars. Lol

    Re: limewire on blackberry

    Limeware is actually a java-based program and can theoretically run on a BlackBerry with some major tweaking.

    Unfortunately Limewire is written for desktop computers and not mobile phones. Here's why this is a problem:

    - Java (java on desktop is a bit different from java for mobile [JavaME], which is also different from BlackBerry's Java OS)

    - data consumption (Most desktop users have unlimited internet use but BlackBerry users don't, especially in Canada)

    - connection speed (BlackBerry connection speeds are too slow. Wifi might make it feasible though)

    - application size (The Limewire installer is probably ~5 MB. BlackBerry applications are usually much smaller).

    - security policy (I'm not sure how RIM would feel about the possibility of people being able to download anything from another person's BlackBerry if they accidentally shared all their files)

    You would need a version of Limewire written specifically for a Blackberry. It ain't happening.

    Eh, it could happen. Limewire (even the pro version) is open source.

    Re: limewire on blackberry

    And why would somebody want limewire on their phone. It would be a big mistake considering all the spam and malware that's involved with it.
    I use a p2p program and know what's in there.
