    I am trying to download the newest version of Blackberry Desktop Manager, someone hasta have another link to a site that can download it FASTER. I am currently downloading it at 16kbs, I mean COME ON RIM, you can't get more servers to download these things faster?

    You could be experiencing congestion elsewhere on the path between you and RIM. Have you tried canceling the download and starting over? You might get a better path.

    Tried NUMEROUS times, it is RIM's site. I can't believe they are the most popular phone out there and they can't put money back into their systems so they can handle NUMEROUS downloads at a time, I mean they are right up there with Microsoft.

    Have you checked to see if Sprint has it available for DL? Verizon does, but it requires a Verizon phone number.

    Same issue here, Argentina.... Ive tried restarting download several times and it never goes faster than 12 KB/s... terrible!!!

    Any other site, besides the official RIM website?

    To the OP, you must have a crap connection. I downloaded at over 900Kb per sec .

    Where would I find out if Sprint does? If you could, would you PM me and help me get it faster?
