    Dcg, You probably don't NEED that download. You can get everything that's on it elsewhere but getting it depends on what you have, etc.

    Do you have a copy of the Desktop Manager? That's probably the main thing that a new user needs to have as well as needs to learn to use. If not, we can provide you with a download and install instructions for that. How about themes on your phones, etc. That download will provide the basics that Alltel issues with each of it's phones.

    Post back what you have and, if you're aware of it, anything you might need.

    Also, update your profile with device, carrier and location at least, and any other info you're comfortable putting out there.

    I have a copy of the DM. The only issues I am having currently is with BB messenger and My Space. On the messenger all of my contacts stay on the pending list. On my space I keep getting a failure to communicate with myspace, but it seems to work ok. I was thinking of upgrading to 4.5 to see if that helps with any of my issues. I am currently running OS 4.3. I do not have anything added to my BB Curve at this time, no themes or anything. Thanks for your reply.

    It won't hurt to download that and install it - I wouldn't fool with it unless you want to.

    Do your BBM contacts that have been confirmed stay on the pending list. That usually happens because your "invitations" aren't accepted yet.

    If you want to upgrade to 4.5 you can get the OS here and the upgrade instructions here.

    Just be sure to take your time if you haven't upgraded before. It can take up to an hour and, at times, look like nothing is happening. DO NOT be impatient. Let the upgrade finish - it will tell you when it's through.

    Also, what version of DM do you have? 4.6 (and before) is a good ones - 4.7 generally causes problems.

    I can't help you with My Space but let's get you fixed up with the other stuff and maybe the upgrade will take card of some of the issues. You'll also get some themes with the upgrade. Also, you can get lots of themes free here - try this forum when you're ready.

    Post back with your decisions and status.

    The quick link mobile installer is used to connect mobile from your PC to the Internet. Basically I guess you could call it there tethering app. It has nothing to do with downloading or installing OS and so on. Unless you are going to us your BlackBerry as a modem there is no need to get this.
