Hi, This may be a very dumb question...

I purchased software from last night on my PC
I downloaded the software and attempted to use winzip to try and extract the files. I opened up my blackberry desktop, attempted to open files and it tells me that I have none. How to I open the .ALX and .COD files to download on my Pearl ?

You need to download through your desktop manger. Initially, I often create a new folder and move those files to that folder.

Also, you need to have the OS package installed to your PC along with Desktop Manager. You can get it from the verizon download site.
