    Ok i have been with cingular forever. My sister bought me a bbpearl for my b day...thats this coming wednesday. Its a tmobile phone (crap). Dont have the money at the moment to get unlock code or any friends with tmobile. Well i would like to be able to play with my phone till after holidays..spent all my money getting custody of my kids. I cant seem to find a way to get the games from the bb site without using my bb. Anyone know how i can do it? im extremely new to having a bbpearl....just came from a motorola slvr. thanks.

    welcome to pinstack. glad to hear you got your prioties straight on not spending the money to get it unlocked

    anyway, are you trying to just download and save the games on your computer until you get it unlocked? or are you wanting to know if you can put games on the pearl without having it actived/unlocked?

    ohh your trying to download games that are OTA (over the air). you need to have activation to your phone to be able to do that.

    if you go to the download section of the site towards the top, youll see a list of games that you can save and extract to your computer. then just use desktoop manager to load the .ALX file to your phone.

    let me know if you need some more help

    The OTA games on the Blackberry Extras site, cannot be downloaded to a PC and those that are designed for OTA are in the same boat. You need to look for the games that are created for installation using the Desktop manager. These are usually loaded on the download section in zip files, because you need at least two files, the cod file(s) that are installed and the alx file that controls the install when using the apps loader command from Desktop Manager.

    Hope this helps
