How to Load Apps on a BlackBerry Curve

How to Load Apps on a BlackBerry Curve thumbnail
Loading applications onto your BlackBerry is best done with your BlackBerry Desktop Manager.

There are a lot of different applications that can be loaded onto your BlackBerry Curve. The most straightforward way of downloading an application onto your BlackBerry Curve is to simply navigate from your BlackBerry browser to the site you want to download from and follow the links provided to download the program. However, sometimes these websites are not set up to work this way with a Curve and a more in-depth application loading process is needed. To perform the process you need to have the latest version of the BlackBerry Desktop Manager on your PC and the downloaded file in an ALX file format.
