    Any software actually work on Pearl??

    Advertisement



    Hi everyone. This is only my second day using a Blackberry and its my first device. I have previously using Windows Mobile phones and found them to be very adaptable and easy to use. However I've just attempted to download approx 15 'free' programms and not one of them has works on my phone! Its unbelievable.

    I have downloaded them and installed correctly. Tetris and Space Invaders work for about 3 seconds then crash but thats it.

    Am I doing something wrong or does this Blackberry simply not accept any software.

    Thanks for any help

    Where are you downloading them from? What applications are you trying?

    Can you name any others besides those two games so we can help more, or tell you if they are compatible with the Pearl.

    I have about 35 3rd party applications working on Pearl, what applications are you looking for?

    For IM try http://beejive.com/ it supports all the popular IM's

    There are free games at www.mobile.blackberry.com (visit that URL with your BB browser)
    More games can be found at www.magmic.com, www.handango.com, www.handmark.com, and www.getjar.com
    getjar also has alot of generic applications some work some dont:
    http://www.getjar.com/software/Java/Generic

    What error's are you getting with Opera Mini and Blackberry Maps? Have you already installed them on the phone?

    There are alot of good apps like Beyond 411 (www.thebogles.com), it just depends on what your looking for.

    Thanks for that, i will check out those links.

    I have installed Blackberry Maps and Opera already.

    BB maps appears on the menu screen and loads up but no maps!

    Opera also appears on menu, but will not connect to the internet. Keeps asking me to check my internet settings with my service provider?? The standard browser works fine though;

    Hey for OPERA MINI there is on small important thing you should do so it can work and get accepted when it tries to go on the NET this is if you are currently a T-Mobile Costumer.

    On your device go to
    Advance Options > TCP> and then type in option APN: wap.voicestream.com once you are done typing leave the rest BLANK and just save and try to go on your opera Mini.

    Hope this helps, im sure you can find others explaining this a bit better. Try it and hope you get the best of this device.

    I have managed to get Opera working now!

    Just realised Blackberry Maps is only available in US & Canada at the moment, and living in the UK we are always the last to get stuff - Typical : )

    Try using Google maps.

    Im not sure that it supports Europe yet for mobiles.
