Default How do you install apps without a data plan???

Please Login to Remove!

I have a unlimited email plan (with a very small data plan) and I wanted to know if there's a way to download Blackberry apps using the Desktop software (ie. using my laptop/desktop to download and install the app on my BB).

I have a Curve 8310 and have the most current Blackberry device software.

It depends on the applications. Some applications will have desktop install files while others are over the air only.

I thought the Desktop software had an Application Installer.

It does, but the application package you are installing must be designed for desktop installation. Some do, some don't.
