Question Need help, got a blackberry 8700

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

Thank you in advance. I have a BB 8700 and all I want is to transfer pics and songs from my PC. How can I do that? Can some one tell me how to do this and what program do I need. I really appreciate it. My phone is only for calls and text messages. I don't have e-mail or internet. I bought it on Ebay. PLEASE HELP!!!! GRACIAS...

BlackBerry Fan from Texas.

Do you have a USB cable hooked from the phone to the computer? if not you will need one, or bluetooth on your computer.

when you connect them does your phone ask about mass storage? if so click yes and it should bring up the folders on your memory card assuming you are using one.

As a Mac user, I've found the easiest way to get pics to my Blackberry is to send them via Bluetooth. Probably the same from a pc. You have limited storage with the 8700 so keep an eye on how much free space you have on your Blackberry. Low free memory leads to wonky behavior on your 'berry.

If you installed the media manager open it and it will let you add files that way.
