    application problem

    Advertisement



    hello,

    I just bought a BB 8110 and am having trouble adding applications. I installed the desktop manager and downloaded a few apps from this website and when I begin to install them on my phone, a box comes up and says "applications were not recognized for your device" or something like that. The files are all alx. and should be installing but I dont know what im doing wrong.

    Hello ballin! Welcome to PinStack!

    You'll need to install the device OS on your PC.

    Did you buy this phone new?

    OS=Operating System

    You will need the same operating system that is on your device installed on your desktop on order to load these new app's

    Check the links in my blog to find your carriers web site and download and install the device OS on your desktop and you should be good to go!

    Yes, make sure that the app. That you are trying to install on your BB is for your particular BB and OS model. Let us know if you have any further questions. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Go here to get your OS. Simply select your device and pick the OS that matches the release on your device, download and install it to your P-C.

    back again lol.... so anyways I downloaded BB desktop manager v.4.6 the newest possible one and im back to the same problem. I try installing an app (alx file) and the same "no additional apps for your device was found" comes up. I tried downloading v4.3 (the same as on my pearl) and it said this version is too old. Any ideas on what to download next lol?

    Ok, that matches the link for the 8110 that Jblackfish provided. Did you download the software and then launch and install it on your desktop?

    You can check the installation by going to your Control panel - Add Remove Programs on your PC and make sure that the device software shows up....
