Game transfer

Is there any way to transfer games onto the phone via data cable?

As far as I know there's not. This is probably to eliminate any chance of all the games ending up publicly available on the net for free.

Ignore my previous post. I went dyslexic there for a minute. My apologies. AFAIK, you can't transfer from the phone to the computer but you can indeed transfer from the computer to the phone. You're going to need free app called "floAt's Mobile Agent" which can be found at

In that program there is a menu called "Action" and in that menu is an "Upload" option. Click that and then browse your computer for the .jar file that is your game then just click OK. Once the file is sent to the z500, it will ask you if you want to put it in the applications directory or the games directory. After that you're done.

Tada! Smile

I honestly don't know. However, if there's nothing on the phone you care to keep and/or you have everything backed up (including contacts and such) you might try going to the options menu and on the very bottom of the first tab there's a "Master Reset". When you click the right softkey while highlighting that, it pops up an info page about it that includes this: "Note that you may lose content that was in the phone at purchase."

It would be interesting to know if this Master Reset wipes the Cingular installed content or not but I can't test the theory... there's a couple of the Cingular things I want to hold on to for now. If you do try it out, let us know what happens... if it deletes everything from the memory... if it slaps the de...
