Re: Help with downloading Games

A zip file won't do you any good anyway ON the BlackBerry. To load the game Over The Air, from the BB browser, look for an "OTA" version of the download for a *.JAD file, which will install direct to the BB device.

Re: Help with downloading Games

OK, that .JAD file is inside the zip file that I downloaded.  I opened the zip on my PC and its in there.  How do I, first find the file, then I will hopefully be able to open it and run .JAD file.

 

 

Also,

Here is the link that I am downloading from: http://www.bbgeeks.com/blackberry-games/170-free-games-for-your-blackberry-88159/ 

 

Now, could you try and download one of the games on there and tell me how to do it.  I would greatly appreciate your (or anyones) help!!!

Re: Help with downloading Games

Did you read the directions posted on the bbgeeks website?

 


You may download free mobile games directly from this website and transfer them to your mobile phone afterwards or you may download them directly from your mobile phone using your WAP browser. More information is available after selecting your mobile phone. Alternatively, browse to http://mobilerated.com/wap and your phone will be auto-detected and the right free mobile games for your phone will automatically be presented to you.

Re: Help with downloading Games

Hey man, hows it going?  Thanks for your help so far...I sincerely appreciate it.  Obviously, I'm new to blackberry, so I'm having a lot of trouble so far getting things set-up.  Could you please help me a little more?

 

I download the game to my home laptop.  Now I need to transfer them to my mobile phone...Correct?  I plug my phone into my laptop, and nothing happened.  Do I need to install a driver or software to my laptop in order to transfer data???

 

After I install the driver (or software), what are the next steps??? 

 

Also, the zip file contains 4 files: a .jad, a .cod, a .alx, and a .cod      Do I transfer all 4 of these files to the mobile phone, or just the .jad???

 

Thank you again for your help

Re: Help with downloading Games

Apparently you queston has been answered already in one of the many other threads you have created on this basic issue, but for another reading it, here is the difference between ALX, COD and JAD files.

 

  • Over-The-Air:

This method allows you to download the theme directly to your handheld without using a PC. 
  • ALX/COD:

ALX and COD files are used to install from the PC through Desktop Manager and Application Loader.
