BlackBerry App World is not currently available in your country

The following error message appears when BlackBerry App World™ is launched:

BlackBerry App World is not currently available in your country

 

Cause:

BlackBerry App World is only available in specific countries.

 

Wouldnt it be better to tell people "why" instead of just showing a list of supported countries?

 

if government issue, then user can petition their government

If not carrier supported, they can petition their carrier

if other expalin a bit so users can request the place of concern

Re: BlackBerry App World is not currently available in your country

Hey knottyrope,

 

I feel your pain on this one - but the reasons App World isn't available in certain countries is actually business related.  We have to ensure that we and our partners meet local laws and legislations for operating an e-commerce system and that can take time.  We're in over 110 countries now and adding more and more every month.

Possible the above might be in some sort of stages you could publish? that would at least let users know what is going on and at what stage is an issue is at. A little knowlege is better than just a list of supported countries.

 

Thanks for your time.

Unfortunately that's information we can't share.

Re: BlackBerry App World is not currently available in your country

as akinsella says they cant share info like this

explanation - any information received by any government official regarding laws and legislation, unless otherwise stated, is usually strictly confidential. sharing information of this kind can be a breach of laws such as the data protection act etc
