First and foremost, let me clarify that this post is entirely for those who are new to using a blackberry 10 phone. Old users who are also interested in knowing how to download music files, videos, images can also option in.

Following one of my post where I wrote on GLO BIS been the best data plan for the blackberry 10 phones like Q5, Q10, Z10, Z3, Z30 and the yet to be released Classic (Q20), some persons have been asking how they could download files online to their phones and that’s entirely why I decided to put up this post.

Now, if you’ve been using Blackberry OS 7 downwards, Java or symbian phones, the download process for music files or videos are very different. But if you have used an android phone before in downloading music online, knowing how to download on a BB10 device shouldn’t be a biggy as the process are same.

Downloading Music Files, Videos, Images To Blackberry 10 Phones

Without wasting much of our time, the process is very simple and we should just get down to it.

Please Note: This process isn’t required in all sites. Some sites allow a direct download to your blackberry 10 phone while some require you undergoing the process we are going to be stating below:

==> If you are trying to download a music file or a video file online and instead of downloading automatically, it opens a window and plays it directly, simply navigate back to the download page, Press and hold on the download button. This will bring up some menu options. Simply tap on Save linked file and the download should commence in a bit.

==> In the case of Images, Please Press and Hold on the image to display some meuns(options), simply tap Save Image and the image download should commence.

Its as simple as that!

This method is applicable to android phones and tablet when trying to download most files from most sites and it’s also applicable to Blackberry Playbook device.
