Lightbulb Free RIM Blackberry Games Download

Please Login to Remove!

Can anyone tell me how to get the .jad files for these games?

BlackBerry - Games

I'd like to download them to the pc and install them on the wifes phone using the Desktop Software.

I can install them fine using the OTA on my phone, but there is no option to "save" just the install.

Thanks in advance.

.jad files require installation OTA (Over the Air)

you just download and it will install for you, you don't need to "save" them. Sometimes I have needed to do a hard boot to see the games afterwards.

Guys, thanks for your feedback! However, I am intentionally trying to download the JAD files so that I can run them from the PC and install them to my wifes BB. (She doesn't have the internet data plan on her phone and I do.) I installed it no problem, but I know the data charges on her phone to get it will be costly out of plan I'd rather find a way to do it from the pc to avoid the airtime fee.

Any ideas on how to do this? Any ways to send the .jad files to a phone direclty as an attachment?

You can't load .jad files any other way than OTA. You want .jar files to use the app loader in Blackberry Desktop Software.

And let me guess there isn't any way to convert from .jad to .jar right?

Try downloading the files you want to your PC, transfer them to your Media card, and install them from your BB... works just like OTA.

or, more complicated:

Good luck!
