Put the OTA files in a web accessable location and point the browser on your phone to the URL.

 

ie. 

if you upload the OTA cod file(s) to a directory named '/ota/appname' on your web server you would access http://your-url.ca/ota/appname/cod-name.cod in the BlackBerry browser to install the app

It is a dummy URI, you would put the URI of the server you uploaded your file(s) to to make it work. I used .ca since I am from Canada :smileyhappy:

You need to link to the associated .JAD file and not the .COD file
