    Question How do I save a game to desktop from phone?

    Advertisement



    Aloha my fellow pinheads,

    I paid for and downloaded a few games from gamemobile.co.uk. This site only allows OTA, no desktop files at all.

    Heres the deal, I want to get the games off my phone to free up memory, but I want the option to reinstall them later, if I wish. How can I do that?

    Before anyone asks, I cannot go back to the site and download them again. They expire after a week.

    I'm guessing the answer lies within desktop manager, but I can't find it.

    Long Days and Pleasant Nights,
    Justin

    open up desktop manager and just uncheck the boxes. That will uninstall them. If you want them back just check the box again. That will reload them.

    Red, Did you miss this statement, "This site only allows OTA, no desktop files at all." I don't believe he has the files on his PC after he unchecks in apploader. Sounds like that site is a rip off if you loose the ability to download a file you have paid for after two weeks. What happens if your BB messes up and you have to wipe it.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I'd agree this site I a rip off.

    So, unchecking in DM will delete from phone, but will it also save a version of the game to the PC?

    I haven't had a chance to try it yet, and I don't want to until I know for sure.

    Yea if you have to wipe then it's lost. I would have to agree that the site is a ripoff. But that is the only "workaround". Can't do much else if you want to make space for other apps.

    This method doesn't save the files anywhere that I know of so be careful. I do have these applications in PC form though too. I dunno. I could be totally wrong now that I think about it.
