    Lightbulb Gotta Love this BlackBerry!!

    Advertisement



    Hello. My name is Jared and i am new to the Blackberry world. I am really enjoying my new Blackberry. I have discovered capabilities I only dreamed about with my other phones! Is anyone out there from Utah or even Southern Utah such as St. George. I'd like to try out this Blackberry messenger! My pin is 250B9CB0. If you have any tips or 3rd party software suggestions to help me make this my primary planning and scheduling tool, it would much be appreciated! I have been using a palm forever but was sick of carrying a palm and a cellphone so I need something that is real easy and versatile to use and plan with. I look forward to mastering the Blackberry's capabilities and to meeting people in the Blackberry community!

    Ive got a question. Every time I download a theme for my 8100 from a zip file, I cant find it in the themes menu on my BB. How do I install these themes!!

    Re: Gotta Love this BlackBerry!!

    zip files have to be installed using your computer and the desktop manager that came with your pearl, when you unzip the file you should see two files inside... a ".alx" and a ".cod" when you run the applications manager you click add, and then find the .alx, that will add the theme to your applications list, and install it on your phone, ota files are ".jar" or ".jad" files and are installed directly to your phone via your blackberry internet service.

    i know thats kind of vague but i hope it helps there are other threads that explain it in greater detail just search for them they should be easy to find,

    welcome to blackberry and to the stacks, and goodluck

    the 4 must haves are:

    ColorPearl
    SoftReset
    AutoLock
    iPhoneZen

    have fun with it I do

    Re: Gotta Love this BlackBerry!!

    ok for themes, you need to use an OTA theme to load it directly to your BB. after the install perform a batt pull
    phone on batt out 30 sec then back in
    zip files are for installation from your PC using desktop manager.

    hope this helps

    let us know what other questions you have
    and welcome to the addiction!

    Re: Gotta Love this BlackBerry!!

    if it's a zip file just unzip it and then load the files using your App Loader in your Desktop Manager.

    To save you some headaches get the updated version with Roxio here.
    https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...93E4F3BB068C22
    Grab the one with service pack 2.

    As for other applications, just check out JerryD's thread in my signature. If you can't see me signature turn that option on under your options in the forum.

    You may want to poke around here for a while too.

    a soft reset is when you pull the battery from your pearl and put it back in
