New to Blackberry

Hi, I have recently purchased a BlackBerry Storm and I am having trouble downloading games via my Application Loader especially when the games have the extensions .JAR and .JAD. .ALX and .COD files are fine. I am not very technically minded and would appreciate some help here how to sort this out. People have told me I need to download a program which converts the files, but I'm not so sure. There are loads of freeware games I want but can't have right now. Thanks in advance. Jane

.jar/.jad files are OTA, meaning they are meant to be downloaded Over The Air directly from your phone. Just use the browser on your Storm, goto the site where the link is at, and click it. You can also download the file to your PC, and then email the file to an email that you have setup on your Storm.
