Welcome to the Forums! You'll love the 8100!! You can install OTA, and through your Desktop Manager.

jig... normally an OTA download (Over The Air) will tell you it is such. Other applications must be installed by download it to your PC first, then transferring and installing by Desktop Manager first as Bruce stated.

Look down in the Aftermarket Forums for lots of apps and installation advice from previous discussion threads.

Talking Gonna' Love It!

I've had my Pearl since January and I LOVE IT! At first I was unsure, because I have always had Motorola phones... now, in part thanks to this forum, I will continue to upgrade my BB over the years!

Like everyone has already said, look for OTA or Download Zip... after a few weeks you'll have discovered all sorts of great applications and some things that are sort of trial and error. Be sure to scroll through the 8100 Forum and look closely for what you need... every question you have is answered here!

Have Fun!!!
