After downloading the PEPID installation files to your PC, installing the program to your BlackBerry is a two-step process. First, you install the PEPID application file from the PC to the BlackBerry using BlackBerry´s Desktop Manager software. Then, you will install the content files from your PC to the BlackBerry using our PEPID BB Conduit.
To get started, you will need a qualified PC with BlackBerry® Desktop Manager 4.1 or higher, your BlackBerry® device, a USB sync cable and access to the Internet. Although it is not required, we do suggest you have a memory card in your Blackberry and that you install the PEPID content to the memory card. The first time you follow this procedure, it may take 45 minutes to an hour. Subsequent updates should take much less time. If you have any questions during your installation, please contact PEPID customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 888.321.7828 ext 206.
PC OS Requirements: To download and install PEPID to your BlackBerry device from your PC, you will need a Windows 2000, NT, XP or Vista operating system.
BlackBerry® Desktop Manager 4.1 or higher. If this is not installed, you can download from Blackberry's website.
BlackBerry Device Requirements: PDA software versions of PEPID products are available for BlackBerry devices running OS version 4.1 or higher (64 MB or greater). PEPID requires a 64mb device. 16mb SRAM or greater is recommended. Devices with 8mb SRAM may experience less than optimal performance.
Space Requirements: Click here for PEPID file sizes.
We recommend that you install the PEPID content to a memory card, rather than the device's memory.
To check free memory on your BlackBerry device, select Options (or Settings) > Status. The File Free displayed is the available memory. File Total is total capacity of the device.
SD Card Properly Installed: PEPID supports the microSD media card on BlackBerry devices. If you are installing your PEPID content files to a memory card, follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer and insert the memory card into your device.
Power Availability: Your BlackBerry device will receive power from your PC through the USB cable during installation. Fully-charging the device before installation, while not required, is still recommended for peak program performance after the install.
