1. Get the Kindle Reader for BlackBerry at http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?ie=UTF8&docId=1000468551. You enter your BlackBerry email address and click send. They send an email to your BB and you follow the link. It recognizes your exact model and lets you download.
2. Get the Mobipocket scripture file (LDS Scriptures Blackberry.prc) at http://ldspocket.com/freeebook/LDSScriptBB.zip.Kindle reads PRC files. Save the zip file to your PC and unzip it. Copy the PRC file to the "yourdevice\yourSDcard\Kindle\eBooks" folder on your BB using the USB cable.
The two reader apps that were poor were the church's Gospel Library for Blackberry and the new beta MobiPocket Reader.
The church's app makes your screen look like the old-fashioned Blackberry with a keyboard that you can't hide and the text only on half the screen. The font is so small I cannot read it (though some younger folks may be able to) and there is no option for font size adjustment. At that size links are impossible. Getting the touch screen to scroll down a page is nearly impossible (you must barely touch and not click as you move your finger and it seldom works at all). It takes an hour to download to your BB.
The MobiPocket app has font size adjustment and utilizes the full screen, but navigation is horrible. Once you get to a page of text, only a few verses are displayed and you cannot scroll down or move to another page. Instead, you must go back to the verse links and select another verse. Impossible to read more than one or two verses at a time.
