You need to get a program such as WINRAR onto your PC, then use this to uncompress the RAR file before transferring it to your handset. A RAR file is just like a ZIP file. it's a larger file that has been compressed down to save space

I strongly recommend Blackberry users of Giffgaff download the BOLT Browser from as it replaces the default browser and makes it a lot easier to download and install programs on your Blackberry


Quote from website > "If you'd like to make BOLT the default browser on your BlackBerry (so you can open BlackBerry mail, messenger and sms links in BOLT) please download the BOLT Launcher Plug-in (in addition to the BlackBerry specific version of BOLT) at :"
