Many Jar files don't always work well on the BB... Make sure the file is FOR a blackberry, first. Same with JAD files, many will install, but some are not designed to work on the BB.

where can i find good blackberry free games? i do heard about some page and downloaded all blackberry 8100 games on there but they arent still compatible with my blackberry, at least of what you are saying, i also downloaded some games in a torrent file, but i didnt have luck with them.

also, whats the difference between cod files and axl files?

if i download something via OTA i do spend some of my kbs (of my service plan) right?

appreciate your answer

best regards..

Look here 3rd Party Application List - BlackBerryFAQ

For a Desktop Manager/App Loader install, you need both the ALX and the COD file.

Yes, downloading OTA, will use data on your BB.
