    Winmobile, HTC Touch Pro 2. At least all the winmobile 6.0 and 6.1 phones are standardized. (Win 5.0 was quite different and I hear 7 will be another major change; tho I don't yet know how much affect that will have on certain types of apps.)

    Cheers,
    Tom

    I have a bunch of blackberry's....

    9000 (Working)
    8900 (Working)
    8310 (Not Working)
    9500 (Working)


    The issue is with the .jad file...whomever created it did not link the 9 .cod files to the .jad installation file, thus the problem... Don't know how some users are reporting success as the installation file was not generated correctly...


    ----------

    HERE'S THE FIX

    Download the attached .cod files (for 8900, Tour and Bold only)......load all to your blackberry.....then the application will be loaded...Done.... Should show up in the download folder (default)


    If you don't know how to load .cod files then you shouldn't be attempting this, nor asking...

    True. I'm not one. In fact, while I had high hopes, I found I didn't like them. (Just a personal preference, I really have no particular bias. I'm happy many people do find them very useful.)

    Alls I'm saying is that, just like the different Winmobile versions are quite different, all the different Blackberry models are different at the software and OS level. Some versions of Winmobile don't have the stuff to support Supercast, and some versions of the Blackberry OS don't either.

    At least DIRECTV has tackled several Blackberry models. :)

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Against the wishes of jungleland, I am asking how to load the cod files without a valid jad. The javaload would be one way but am guessing that's not it!?

    Storm on a BES. Running latest (official) release for verizon .148

    same here.. running a storm on BPS with 151 - i doubt going to 148 will make a difference.

    ...in the lack of support for the 83XX version. Was looking forward to it coming on line with my Blackberry...a great phone but I guess not great enough for this particular software....

    :nono:

    It's not the phone....it the choice that was made as to which BB units to support....nothing prohibits the 83xx units from getting the same service, except the availability of the same kind of software.

    I agree...just not sure the thinking behind the logic in not having available the software for the most popular series of Blackberrys...

    Tried the Curve install with an 8330..downloaded and passed the install fine...but when running...gives a RIM device type error message.

    Looks like those of us with any Curve 83xx are out of luck.
