transferring Opera Mini from pc to phone



I have just got a Blackberry Curve 9300 and am trying to download 'opera mini' onto my phone in order to use the internet. 


I think I have downloaded it correctly onto my pc and have dragged the files across to my blackberry folder. The files appear to show on my phone under Applications;Files;All Files but when I click on it it says 'unable to display file'


Can anyone give me a step by step guide as to how to get opera mini on my phone??


Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: transferring Opera Mini from pc to phone

It's much easier from your BlackBerry browser to simply go to m.opera.com


If you want to do it from your PC, you need to download the specific version for your model from the Opera MIni site, to your PC. Then you will run the BlackBerry Desktop Software on your PC and add the application by following the instructions (Applications > Add).

So, no, you can not 'drag'ndrop' the file from your PC to your BlackBerry to install any application.

Re: transferring Opera Mini from pc to phone

Thanks for your help ....


I would just do it from my phone but I am unable to access the internet at all currently as my network provider does not support internet on a blackberry and so they suggested downloading Opera.


I have tried installing blackberry desktop software to my pc and although it appears to install ok when I try and open it it says:


Blackberry Desktop Software has stopped working.

A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.

Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.


I have read other posts which seem to indicate that this is a common problem with the software?

I have tried uninstalling it and starting again but it is still not working.


Any ideas??
