    You could eliminate a step and download them from filesites via your MID's browser.

    I take it you have the apps as .apk files on your PC but you havn't a file manager on your phone for installing the .apk's.

    So you could try this:
    Copy the .apk's via USB cable in a folder (say MyApps) on your SD card.
    After un-mounting the SD card execute in your phone browser window
    "file:///sdcard/MyApps/<you apk file>"

    if you are talking about all apps from the android market.. then you should fix that issue and not find a work around. there should be no reason not to be able to do this.

    if you are having problems with 1 app... then.
    1. you have to have apk file of that app.
    2. have a file manager app installed on your phone... ex: Astro
    3. copy the apk file to any place on your phone via usb or any other way you can.
    4. make sure you:
    homescreen
    menu
    settings
    application
    then check the "load app from un-known source"
    5. use the file manager (step 2) to install the apk file (step 1)
