Question putting apps on 8310 (no internet/data plan)

Please Login to Remove!

Is it possible to download and install apps onto a computer then transfer over to my 8310 using desktop manager?

If so, how? The BB app website will only let me download the files directly to my 8310.

I just need a free, simple notepad-type app on my 8310.

OS loads from the PC

You need desktop install files for the apps you want to do what you want to do, berryman. They are rarely provided anymore, as far as I can tell, as over-the-air (OTA) is routine nowadays.

Here are links that will explain better than I can what you are up against.

BlackBerry Guide: How to Install 3rd Party Applications on Your BlackBerry | BB Geeks

Jad/Jar to ALX?

Good luck.

Having a blackberry data plan makes so many things so much easier.
