How do you transfer/load/install them to your phone?
Do you have a storage card?

One thing that you could (should?) do is to open the phone's file manager and select Options, scroll to "File Browser Settings" and un-check all "Hides".

Then go to the Windows folder, click soft key for "List View" and scroll to "jmm.exe" (this is the Java Midlet Manager).

NOTE that when you un-check the "Hides" it takes a while for the phone to load the list as well as having to scroll to the needed file.

Once you find the file click Menu, Create Shortcut and then scroll to Windows, Start Menu, Accessories and then click Done.
You will now have an icon to launch the midlet manager in your Accessories folder and will be able to utilize this easily - if you like you can also add a Speed Dial to the shortcut icon so that you can pull it up quickly.

As far as where your installed apps are - go back to the file manager and do a search for .jad and .jar files on the phone.

You may first need to App-unlock your phone before installing anything that is not registered with Microsoft.

Try Surreal Networks, Howard Forums and XDA Developers and, please, do a lot of reading!

Lastly, after any install, hack or mod you should always reboot your phone.

Good Luck
