    U download those .jar and .jad games and they probably dont work cause u're trying to upload them using your PC. .JAR & .JAD HAVE TO be uploaded and installed OTA

I have hella games with these two files and im not even sure if they work on the pearl. i guess if i want a good game i should just but it, but ireally dont wanna pay $7, im cheap man!

    Re: Games for Pearl

    Ok heres how it works. .JAR & .JAD games have to be downloaded using your bb browser and installed streight to your pearl from there. (usually when u download a game it will automatically install it on your pearl) PC has nothing to do with this. The only games u can upload to your phone using your PC via USB are .alx and .ali files.

    Hope this helps

    P.S. There arent alot of "GOOD" games that are free, so usually when u're looking for some real nice u might also need to count on some $$

    mobile.blackberry.com (OTA) and maybe www.handango.com

    .jar & .jad have to be downloaded using your pearl's browser. Then when u download them using your bb browser it will automatically install the games on your phone. So basicaly to have any .jar and .jad games on your phone u have to have a data plan since u cannot upload any of those through a PC. The only two files that can be uploaded and installed on your PC are .alx n .ali

    Hope this explains

    Re: Games for Pearl

    these are two sites i have been using for years
    with other phones. takes some time for find
    usable stuff but some of its great
    http://getjar.com
    for this site i recomend clicking the JAVA link
    then browse universal java for all phones


    and

    http://midlet.org

    this is a much older site
    but there is a few gems here and there


    both sites have great apps as well

    and yes OTA using BB

    Re: Games for Pearl

    On getjar you have to search under java then look for java apps (and games) that are universal
    Neither of these sites have games just for the pearl. But with a little searching you can find some decent ones.
    When I go home tonite ill post direct links

    j llama, have you been able to free Turbo yet? I bet he is awfully hungry at this point. Maybe you can OTA him some dogchow?

    (PS - I am also M.O.T.(PM me if you don't understand))
