Default Installing 3rd party apps. using Desktop Manager and not OTA.

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

I'm receiving a BlackBerry 8700C via Ebay. (I've already read the Ebay guide, etc that a member of this forum linked me, thanks for the help.) anyways I will not have a BB plan for awhile and from my understanding, I may be able to use a 3rd party browser using my current "generic" data plan.

Now, I've done abit of research, and came across the "Opera Mini Browser", the only problem I see now is that this can only be downloaded via phone browser. Is there any hope for me? I understand there is a program for the BlackBerry where you can install Apps and things from your computer desktop, the Ebay ad did not specify if this program is included or not, I'm assuming that it isnt included, is there a place on the internet where I can download this Desktop Manager? Is there any other 3rd Party Browsers that can be placed on the phone without having to use OTA?

Thanks for the help.

Cam

You can download Desktop Manager directly from the BlackBerry website.

I just wanted to apolgize in advance if any of my past questions, or these questions have already been answered, I've done some searching, but with limited results.


Anyways, I've attempted to download two different versions of the Desktop Manager, and received Errors both times. What is the cause of this? is there a certain version I need to download?

Thanks alot.

I would download 4.2 SP2 or SP1. There is a Roxio Media manager included with DM now but one of these versions has a download that doesn't include it. You don't really need it with the 8700.

Will the manager not run on Vista or something? I tried to download a few versions off the website and got the errors as previously stated. Since that didn't work, I borrowed my Mom's blackberry disk (She has a BlackBerry for work.), and it installed without any errors, but will not launch, like it "Flashes" and then goes away.

I'm all out of ideas here.
