Downloading games and apps can be confusing. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Be sure your phone supports Java ME (also called J2ME) apps. Check your phone’s manual or contact the phone’s manufacturer if you don’t know.
  2. Free Basics blocks downloads using free data so be sure you have sufficient paid data to download the app.
  3. Visit boostapps.com with your phone’s browser
  4. Find a game or app you want.
  5. Click the “DOWNLOAD (jad”) link below the app’s description. The phone will download and install the app.
  6. Not every app works with every phone. Check the “Reported working on…” and “Reported not working on…” lists on the app’s download page to see if the app has been tried on your phone>

In addition to BoostApps, Java ME games are available from several other sites. The procedure varies a little from site to site but is generally something like this.

  • Go to a mobile download site (see below for a list of ones that work) with the phone’s built in browser
  • If it asks you to pick a phone and yours isn’t listed pick one with the same screen size, for example:
    • Use Motorola V300 for phones with 176×220 screens.
    • Use Motorola V190  for phones with 128×160 screens
    • Use Samsung A707 for phones with 240×320 screens
  • Find a game you want and click the download link or button
  • Don’t expect every game or app to work.  Typically only about half of them do

Download sites that work: I’ve successfully downloaded and installed games from these sites to my Boost CDMA Motorola Rambler:

  2. Free basics means a free product but from what I’ve seen ,free basics uses data because you cannot download

    • Java ME is a runtime for apps that some, mostly older non-smartphones support. ZH&K makes many different phone models. None of the ones I’ve found specs for support Java ME. Check your phone manual or ask ZH&K of your phone supports user installable apps andwhere to find them.

      Do a web search for a song you want to find sites that have that song. Free Basics blocks downloads so you will need some paud data to download music.
