Default adding wallpapers and themes, on my 7130e with a Mac+data cable

Please Login to Remove!

my friend sold me his 7130e for cheap because he wanted a Treo 700w instead. i just got the phone activated, but my poor arse could not afford the Data Plan at an additional $45/month. although i would love to have this feature, i still love the phone without it, especially because i can sync my iCal with it.

the question i had was - is it possible to transfer pictures, themes, mp3s, etc., through the data cable since i dont have the data service? most other phones seem to have this capability so i was hoping i could do this with my 7130e.

thanks!

No data plan? You have limited options.
No way to transfer themes or ringtones; those can only be downloaded from web sites.
Photos can be transferred using third party applications like GTPhoto and Ascendo. Not sure what is available in the Mac arena..

Good luck.

Very limited for us Mac users,if I really need an image saved on the BB I resort to uploading the jpeg to my Nokia 6111 then MMS the image to the 7290. I don't know of any other method.

you can purchase one of the programs that NJ posted about.
