.jar and .jad are OTA (over the air) files. They are designed to be downloaded and installed directly to the phone. Only .alx files can be downloaded to the computer and installed via the apps loader in Blackberry desktop manager.

If you have a data program, this can be done easily. If not, you should be able to use your wifi connection and the BlackBerry browser to download and install the programs. This is how I got my programs onto my phone in the first few months when I did not have a data program.

Yup. Trimix is 100% correct! You can install the JAR from your desktop if you copy both the JAR abd JAD to your memory card, browse to it, and click on the JAR. That's just a big pain tho.

Also, for future reference, the 8100 is the PEARL. The 8200 Is the PEARL FLIP. :)

Moved to appropriate section

Also, use more appropriate titles. "Help! Click Here!" doesn't let us know what your issue is. Use something like "Can't install .jar files".
