Have some patience. I just got your PM on this same issue. If you had searched to forums, you would have found your answer much quicker.

I just did a search and found this in less than a minute.

There an an OTA link in there. Go to that link from your BB Browser, and it will prompt you to install.

Right, but as I stated, it took a minute to find it, not 2 hours. Anyway, did you see the link I posted?

Were you able to download Blingball?

Bosini383 03-22-2009 01:33 PM

no its says the OTA link is not available

Ohh yeah.

So then download the .zip file to your PC. Unzip the files to a folder in your desktop called BlingBall.

Connect your device to your PC with the USB cable, launch Desktop Manager, go into App Loader, click on Browse, then locate the Bling Ball folder on your desktop. Select the .alx file. Follow the prompts and it should install it on your device.

Im having the same problems. I have a sprint pearl and have a memory card I downloaded alx file to from pc and want to put in bb and I cant find how to open my mempory card? Any help?

You can't install applications/programs onto the memory card. It has to go to the device memory. Use the app loader on BlackBerry desktop manager.

what pearl do you have, i have read that if it isnt an 8100 then it does not work, ie an 8130 wont have the ability to run colorpearl. the newer 8100's dont have the led's under the trackball. like i said this is just information i have read and am passing along.

jsconyers 05-20-2009 08:01 AM

Welcome to the forums.

You're correct, only the 8100 has multiple colored LED's under the trackball. The 8110,8120, and 8130 do not. This application will only work with the 8100.
