1. Log into the AstraSync portal at https://www.astrasync.com/portal/account.aspx

2. Click the 'Request a new download link by email for Desktop Install' link under Actions.

3. Download the AstraSync .ZIP file to your PC from the link in the email you receive.

4. Extract the zip file to your computer.

5. Link your Blackberry to your PC via the USB cable.
i) In Options > Memory - Ensure 'Mass Storage Mode Support' is enabled
ii) Also ensure 'Auto Enable Mass Storage Mode when Connected:' is set to 'Yes/Prompt'
NB. Older devices (Curve 8310 etc.) must have media cards installed and enabled to be accessible on the PC

6. Open "Computer" in the Start Menu.

7. Go to the folder/location on your PC where you stored the .JAR file from within the .ZIP

8. Copy the file.

9. In the Drive/Device list under the "Computer" screen find your Blackberry.

10. Paste the file either into the root of Blackberry or a subfolder, either will suffice.

11. Unhook the Blackberry from USB cable.

12. Reboot the BlackBerry device. This can be done by removing the battery for a few seconds then inserting it back in.

13. When the phone comes back online, go in the applications on your phone (or on home screen depending on Theme) scroll to the "Media" icon.

14. Click the "Media" icon to launch it.

15. Press the menu button and select "Explore".

16. Locate the .JAR file either on the device memory or memory card (check both as the Blackberry if you have problems locating the file).

17. Click the file, and it should prompt you to download (install).

18. Click "Download".

19. Once AstraSync has installed step through the setup guide at https://www.astrasync.com/portal/setup2.aspx
