Also i am trying to load themse into my pearl also . Can someone give me the directions for it
ok first things first. Is the computer a PC or Mac. If its a PC then the first thing to do is download the program for your computer, for example if your Pearl is a Cingular Pearl, then make sure to install Cingular Communication Manager. If you have a Mac then download Pocket Mac (available from RIM's website or pocketmac.com).
Now if data connection refused is the message on the BB, then most likely you either don't have a data plan, the data plan isn't active, the wrong data plan is on your account, or you are suffering from lack of data service in your area.
What exactly are you trying to load onto the pearl?
