Getting the scriptures on blackberry

Postby Seattlesteve-p40 » Wed Nov 28, 2007 9:03 pm

So, I have the mobi software loaded on my blackberry. I went to the site metioned to download the scriptures. That is a zip file which I can unzip on my laptop, but how to I get this unzipped file containing the scriptures into my blackberry?

Use your BB Desktop Manager that should have come on a CD with the phone. That should be one way to load it.

But the Desk Top Manager only allows you to load applications, I can't find a way to load a pdb file. How do I do that, or am I missing something?

It should have the option to browse the directory or something (I do not have a Blackberry but I am taking from my experience with other PDAs/phone) it might even have a smart card that you can copy the files onto.

Can't find a function to do that, I am stuck and need some help. I know there have been people that have mentioned having a BB with scriptures on it, but I cannot figure out how to get them on myself. If someone could give me the steps, I would greatly appreciate it:eek::confused:

After going thru the same problems you are facing, I gave up and just access the scriptures via scriptures.lds.org. It's a little slower I'm sure, but at least it works! :)

Yeah, I have worked on dozens of solutions for getting the scriptures on my blackberry as well... in the end I just created a browser link on my desktop using Shortcut hub (http://m.jonathanhfisher.co.uk/webshortcuts/). Works pretty well, but I have Cingular... not the quickest, but better than nothing. Cheers!

I have been using my blackberry and going to www.ldslibrary.com to look at the scriptures via the Internet (not loading anything onto my blackberry). Anything you can get on lds.org is free.
