    Alright I'm sorry for such a stupid question but how do I access the SD card to add APKs when plugged into the computer?

    When you plug it in, you have to select the disk drive option on the phone.

    Click on computer. Find the removable drives. It should be one of them. Click on it and it will open up a bunch of files on your phone. Mine is labeled sdcard. It may take a minute for your computer to see it if the card is not detected yet.

    That is the root of your SD card. You have what you need. Drop the files in something like download and then explore on your phone (using something like Astro from the market) and you can install the apks.

    OR.............................

    Install chrome to phone on your computer and get the app in the market and then when you see an .apk on the internet, just hit the "Chrome to phone" button and then access that page on your phone and download the .apk!!!....another excellent use for "chrome to phone".
