    Go to the .jad link from your storm. That is the Over The Air install of the app.

    lord, don't listen to this Eric guy. To download OTA apps you have to do with from your web's browser, not from your computer. As far as a new OS, check the OS forums. There's a thread stickied on how to download a new OS to your phone. It's really simple, but pretty complicated to break down everytime someone asks.

    Dayz - That is exactly what I was saying. Click on the JAD link from his STORM's browser to get the OTA app.

    There is no need to flame someone that is trying to help. It's posts like this that cause good natured people looking to help to think twice about posting.

    Fire - Below is the link to the 3rd party app forum. Good apps posted here as well as comments and opinions to help you make informed decisions about what you want to install.

    No worries. I posted the reply from my Storm while feeding a 12 month old kid with one hand and a 3 year old with the other.

    Dont ask 'HOW' I typed that message.

    There's a whole forum for OS discussion. Not tryin to be a ****, but you'd get alot more help there without having to ask questions and wait for a reply. Tons of threads there to help you.

    fire try .103. Although I've only used .65, .75, and .103, .103 made me happy

    the way I add app is highlight the link and email it to myself. Then I open the link and download it. is that the same way I can add a new os?

    You really don't need to be adding a new OS yet. Seriously.

    Learn how the phone works and how it works with the computer first.

    You can really screw something up if you don't follow instructions, like right now.

    You need to go to the .jad link in the browser on the phone. Meaning open the phone browser, either type in, or navigate to your link, and follow the instructions to install apps

    Again, learn the phone first, then learn how the PC works with the phone, then attempt your OS install. Also, read in the OS sub forum, don't ask any mroe questions in this thread until you do. That is where you learn what you are asking
