  1. How can I get audio books for my Blackberry Curve? Is the King James Holy Bible abailable in audio? What software do I need to listen to audio books on my Blackberry?

  2. I find the comment “the lazy way of reading” very offensive. Auditory learners are not “lazy”.

  3. i have books on my computer in itunes for my ipod, how can i download them to my blackberry curve

  4. If you can connect your device (any device) to a computer then you can access the SD card. Just look for the MP3 Directory (might have to go to My Computer, Tools, Folder Options, View, and select Show hidden files and folders to see the directory structure but, it should be present.

  5. i just wanted to point out that you can now “check out” mp3 audiobooks from some local libraries. i use my blackberry pearl to check out books from my library and can listen to them for up to two weeks.
