    How can i take an app that i downloaded from my computer, and simply put it on my phone? is it even possible? and if it is, what folder would i put it in, and where would my live wallpapers go to, cause i cant go online on my phone, dont got a plan with it. BTW my phone is a LG Optimus Net, my very first android phone so i dont know much, been searchin up now since i got the thing. hopefully someone can solve my problems tonight. and Google is being gay as well on the market.

    Use USB cable, or use an explorer and connect wirelessly, or send it via email. Put it at root level on your SD card (or in a folder called apps), click on it, it should install itself. Make sure you have Settings/Apps/Unknown Sources checked.

    Better/easier to install from Appbrain or Market.

    The Android Market does not allow download to computer, only to the device. Even without a data plan from your carrier you could still use wifi, though. Find a local free hotspot and you're sorted.
