I think I know what your trying to do.
1) If your trying to install or update anything OTA (over the air) directly to your BB phone it wont work without a BB data plan. The BB software (in your phone) is propriatary and is only supported directly from a BB server, (BIS or BES)
2) The BB Desktop software that came with your phone or downloaded online to your computer is what you use to syncronize/update your phone from your computer.
3) The desktop software, once installed on your computer can be updated on line with your cell carrier. If there are any updates to your phone OS, they can be down loaded online to your computer and your phone can be updated to the new OS by syncing your phone with the BB desktop software using your computer
Remember to read the BB forum articles about updating or upgrading your phone software prior to starting as it can be somewhat involved once started
