    I know its been asked 100000000 times before but how do you downlad apps from your PC to your droid. Ive already installed app installer on my phone and tried downlading to my sd card with no luck. Somebody please help I have no 3g service at home and was hoping to be able to do this....:motdroidvert:

    connect your droid to your computer and mount it obviously, just drag and drop the file wherever you want it to be, have astro file manager on your phone, just open the program find the file and select install

    no... unfortunately I live in a very rual area and lose 3G coverage about 15 min from my house. We(my wife and I) bought our phones b/c we are moving back to a more civilized area soon and found a really good deal on them. Im looking for general apps like games, tools, etc....

    Don't forget that once you get an app on your sdcard, you'll need to go to menu > settings > Applications and click the Install from Unknown Sources box.
