Have you downloaded "Pc suite" for your phone?

Make sure that the app's are for your make of phone first.
When you have downloaded PC suite, then you should just click onto the application(s) in question and then it should auto load onto your phone, though you will be asked some questions, just read the instructions as and when the applications load onto your phone. If you have a micro slot for a memory card then get a 4gb one, and when you are asked to where you want install the app in question, select the 4gb card, usually this will be marked "E". Once the application is installed find out where the app is on your phone. Enjoy

Installing jar apps is a bit difficult...

A few things to check:
1). Have you updated your phones firmware?
If not then do that.
2). Just keep to the SIS extensions, they seam to work just fine.
I think Nokia has changed a few bits inside the phones so as to just accept the SIS software. Leave the JAR files out, the JAR files do not seam to work on my phone either, and i have the E90 series.
If you do purchase a JAR file then you will need to download the READ ME file and follow it carefully.

well i think ill leave at that, if thats the case ill just stick to the sis files, at least i can do half of what i was normally able to do. i can still use youtube and msn and all that, the jar apps i find are just for fun and are a unnessecary waste of space, but i did like the idea of having them on there, oh well no big loss. thanks for your help again
