I am happy to see the Lync client for Blackberry. If you’re a Blackberry user, download it today.

#Lync client for #Blackberry now available http://t.co/2yLfnIT
Is the lync client available for android phones?
i have downloaded Filename: oc2007_OTA_2.5.56c.zip for blackbery, but how can i install this on my set ? plz email or write here
How did you install it? I downloaded the files from Blackberry’s site, but there are no instructions for installation on the BB. Please help. Thank you.
Anirban – and anyone else not familiar with installing apps on a BlackBerry,
First, the link above is for information about the client – a lot of PR blurb.
The client has two installation versions – an Over The Air package:
and an Installation using Desktop Manager here:
If you don’t have BlackBerry Desktop Manager installed on your computer, you can get for Windows here:
(Desktop Software v6.1.0 B38)
or for your MAC here:
(BlackBerry Mac Desktop Software v184.108.40.206)
It is much easier to install the OTA version by unziping the OTA version to an SD Card, or to the device’s memory itself. Just plug the device into your computer. If you have an SD Card, two removeable drives should appear labeled BLACKBERRY1
Thanks for sharing.
I don’t use Blackberry btw! 🙂

It is much easier to install the OTA version by unziping the OTA version to an SD Card, or to the device’s memory itself. Just plug the device into your computer. If you have an SD Card, two removeable drives should appear labeled BLACKBERRY1 and BLACKBERRY2 – unzip it to the BLACKBERRY2 Drive. If only one drive appears, unzip it there, but delete it when done. Once the OTA file is unzipped to your BlackBerry’s storage, unplug it from the computer, then go into the Media folder, click the [Menu] button (button to the LEFT of the Trackpad/Trackball) and select Explore. Navigate to the folder you extracted the file to, then to the oc2007 folder, then to the folder that reflects the OS version your device is running (find that under Options -> About on the device). If your device is running an OS that starts with 6.0, you’ll select the For_6.0.0 folder. In that folder, there will be seven files with the .JAD extension. The language is indicated by the final underscore and the two letters that after it as follows:
_de – Dutch
_en – English (US)
_es – Spanish
_fr – French
_it – Italian
_ja – Japanese (I THINK!)
_BR – English (UK)
When you click on the JAD file, a browser download window will open. Click the [Download] button to download and install the app.
To use the Desktop version, unzip the Desktop version to a folder on your computer, fire up Desktop Manager, and then run the Application Installer and Add the application navigating to the folder you unzipped it to. The Application Loader will get all the information it needs from the .ALX file in the Zip package. If you have Desktop Manager already installed, this may be a lot easier, but if you don’t, it is a large slow installation that you’ll need to download and install first – the OTA is much easeir in that case.
Also, if you have an SD card and unzip it there, you’ll always have it available to reinstall after a full wipe of your BlackBerry. You do that at least once a month like me, right?
I tried this and installed it according to these steps mentioned but after installation, it prompted me for reboot and i can not see any icon on my handheld after successful reboot, no new application was installed. can you please help me with this?
Same happened with me. Any solution you got for this?
by the way:
wrong: _de – Dutch
right: _de – German
Can any one confirm that Lync is only working with the BES(enterprice) version and not with the express version.
