    If your talking about the dm then you can get the latest from your carriers website or search for latest dm. Then download onto your friends pc. I would link you the site but I'm on bb. Good luck!

    you will not be able to save it to your BB. BBs don't work that way. Unless you can get an internet connection for the laptop you're SOL. Sorry for the bad news.

    What if someone were to email me the install folder would I be able to save it into my sd card and then access it via a usb connection?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~download the DM. Compress into a zip or rar folder. Save to SD card using something other than your phone. Meaning a usb slot somewhere other than your phone.

    Plug into friends comp and extract from memory card.

    Good luck.

    I appreciate the advice but I have a couple of problems. I can't find a site with a dm download for phones. And if I were able to where will it download and how will I access it and compress it?

    Go to the blackberry website and download desktop manager. Just google it.

    Download it to your computer. Ace to desktop. You don't have to compress and zip it. That is my personall preference.

    Transfer the file to your SD card.

    you CANNOT download it to your phone.

    you can't save anything from the browser to your SD card.
