Jane, 24 May 2010Hi - I'm a newcomer to the BB world! Please help me - I'm trying to get an ACCURATE answer to... moreSure, just do this:
I use crackberry.com to get my themes, just go to any forum with themes for your model and OS version (go to menu>options>about to find the version you have, either 4.6 or 5.0). Once you find the theme you want, download the ZIP file and extract everything. Open Desktop Manager and select Install apps. Then using the app loader, open the folder you extracted and select the .AXL file. It should be the only one showing. And then select install, it should restart the phone and the go to Themes and it should be there!

Hi - I'm a newcomer to the BB world! Please help me - I'm trying to get an ACCURATE answer to the following question: If I have no data plan and disable all internet access (incl. wifi) can I install BB themes via a data cable from my PC (where the themes have been downloaded to) and will I be able to use them successfully thereafter?? I know this seems like a waste of BB functions to not use the internet but its a cost saver really, so please don't scorn me for not using my BB for all its skills!! Thanks - hope you can help me, I'd genuinely love to know!

Jon, 21 May 2010I just got this phone for my little brother as a part of his graduation, and I have to say tha... moreif the phone is new, let the battery die and then charge it over night, at least 3 times. From then on it should last longer. I've had mine since November 2009 and me battery still has between 35% to 40% after a full day of heavy usage, and if I don't touch it that much, I have 85%-90% left. Also, how did his come with OS5? I know it depends on the carrier, but all 8520s shipped with 4.6.1. and the 8530 shipped with 5.0.
I have 22.214.171.1249 from Wind Hellas installed on mine, and my battery lasts longer than when I was on OS4.6.
Also, quick tip, the carrier doesn't need to release OS5, you can use any official OS5 from a different carrier. Just download the OS you want, open the folder it downloads to and delete the file named "vendor.xml". Then, in the same folder, there's an app called Loader.exe. Use that to install it. But first do a backup of all your data in case the Loader doesn't save everything.
confused guy, 21 May 2010cn anyone please tell me which phones keyboard is better,the nokia e63's or the blackberry's?i... moreI am using this phone from October 09. This is my first blackberry. Absolutely no problems with the keyboard. Excellent phone for the price paid.
Its the basic of BlackBerry and the best of you want to use it for the purpose of emailling and corporate works.
iv had my blackberry since december '09' its a really good phone, i love the features had no trouble with it.
for its price its a really good choice, if you dont have the money for the more expensive ones. very good phone
cn anyone please tell me which phones keyboard is better,the nokia e63's or the blackberry's?i've used the nokia so i wanna buy dis phone but i dunno weather the keyboard is as goood as the nokias.please someone help.
I just got this phone for my little brother as a part of his graduation, and I have to say that I really like it. For its price and what it can do it's not a bad phone. I've got an 8900 Curve which dose do a few things that this can't but for the most part this is on its level. I have to say that the Trackpad is just so much better then the Trackball that my Curve has. It's very smooth and responsive and you'll never have an issue with it, and in a way it feels just as natural as the trackball. The newer OS Ver. 5.0, is nice too. The SMS messages look a lot better on this then they do on my Curve (My Curve is locked and my carrier dosn't support the 5.0 OS). Really the worst part about this phone is its battery life. I have no idea what is up with it, but my brother killed it in less then a day. Even when I had it, using it very lightly not firing up Wi-fi, or Bluetooth, it still eneded up dead. Which is one thing that really bothers me the most, and its the only reason why I'm considering trading it back in for something else. I mean don't get me wrong, this really is a good phone for someone who has never had a smart phone or for someone who wants one, but you don't want to spend a lot of money on one, it really dosn't get much better then this I think. It's a very nicely equipped device, and very capable, but the battery life is its only real serious draw back.
Ayodele, 20 May 2010Hi JRF, from the posts about this phone, you seem to be one of the most experienced one can re... moreI actually didn't have any issues either. Did she have them saved like that on her previous phone? If not, try syncing with Outlook or Google and see how the numbers are saved. If they pass to the PC correctly, delete the contacts and resync with the PC. Use Desktop Manager to help create backups. I'll check more into it and see what I can find.
i would like to know if i have to register with my service provider before actually using it for the first time, because i cant transfer anything using the bluetooth. anyone please help me out. thanks
