Re: what is a ota download

OTA means Over The Air. We can download any theme/software etc. in two ways. Either by downloading the in or local PCand then installing them using Application loader of desktop manager or directly downloading them in ourphone. This direct downloding process is called OTA download.

 

Regarding the Theme have tried soft reset (pulling the battery out for 30 sec)? If that fails then probably installation package is faulty. Try removing then reinstalling it.

Re: what is a ota download

OTA installs are done on the BlackBerry itself. You dont download it to your PC first. Put the OTA link into the web browser on the BlackBerry. You will then get prompted to install. If you having problems post the link your using and someone can test it out.
