It doesnt have IM's (AIM, MSN, ect) and it has two green dots where its pixilated. The most important thing is that i dont know how or i just cant download anything on it (like Music and Pics). Can anyone help me? (Ask if you want info that i didnt include, sorry im a noob)

By music and pics I assume you want to transfer those sort of media files from your computer over to your BlackBerry device. Generally the easiest is to enable mass storage mode (options>media card). However you need to have a MICRO SD card in your device in order for this to be used effectively. If you already have the microSD card, just plug your device to your computer via the USB cable and use it like a flash drive.

As for downloading/installing programs, most available applications/programs for BlackBerrys are designed to be downloaded OTA (over the air), which means you need a data plan.
