You have to unzip the file then Boot your DM. Under Application Loader, select add. Find the file you want to add. Application loader will only show files that are in .ALX format. Select the file and finish the process by following the prompts

Where did you get the free calculator? Was there any other free stuff there?

The free calculator came from http://www.tucows.com/preview/132634, I have been using a Palm for about 5 years, then a treo 270 for about 2 years and I guess I am spoilled as 2 calculators came with the treo. I am very dissappointed in how complicated the BB is to use and how few downloads there are for it. The keyboard on the treo is so much easier to use as the layout is the same as the layout on my pc.

I will try the above to get it on my bb but first need to know what is a "DM".

Thanks.

DM = Desktop Manager should be on the CD that came with your BlackBerry. The same software is also downloadable from tmobile or blackberry's website.

yes the 7100 series keyboard is difficult indeed one of the reasons to go with the 7520 or the 7250 BB the keyboard is just like a PC as well

Part of the issue could be the app in question is not compatible with the 7100 its for the 85x/95x series of device which are c++ devices your unit is a Java J2ME device requiring a loader file that has a .alx extension NOT .ali
