how do i install themes and games from the desktop manager
I'm new to the downloading thing. So I can download and save themes and games to my desktop, but I can't seem to add them to my blackberry. The desktop manager never reads the items I save, and the computer says its an unreadable file. Do I need a converter so the manager can add it??????

welcome to pinstack what device do you have? and what version of DM are you using?
This may vary depending on your model phone and DM version but here are the basics.
Install using your desktop manager.
1. Download the zip file to your PC:
2. Unzip the file to a folder (name the folder).
3. Connect your Blackberry to your computer.
4. Open up Desktop Manager –> Application Loader –> Add.
5. Find the file called “ThemeName.alx” and click “OK”.
The games could be the same simply replace the names above for the game name.
If the files are not zipped and are some other file format there is a chance they are meant to be installed OTA over-the-air. by pointing your BB browser to the web site containing the download link and downloading the theme/game direct to the phone without the DM
its a 8320 and I'm using version 184.108.40.206
ok, do I need a program to unzip..... I have tried what you suggested before and it will not me add the file?????
Depending on what version of Windows you have you may need a program to unzip the files. Vista should not need anything.
Try WinZip it's free.
