Welcome to the forums,

Do you have a Blackberry Data Plan? If so, check out the Aftermarket Software thread. There are lots of 3rd party apps available to suit your needs. If you don't have a Blackberry Data Plan then you are very limitied. There are a few games/apps that you can install via Desktop Manager but most of the fun stuff requires a BB data plan.

I agree, once you get a data plan you will find that there are plenty of apps to keep you happy and entertained.

There are a few out there that can be downloaded via the Desktop Manager. However, most of them are downloaded via the browser directly to your BB. You really need a BB data plan. With TMo it runs 19.99 and with Cingy I think it's 29.99. You basically have a phone with a nice organizer.

Check out Handango.com and the aftermarket software thread for specific info.

Your blackberry is pretty crippled without a data plan. Pony up and spend the $20, you will fall in love.
