APPS DON'T WORK ON BB CURVE 8520

Somebody help me...!

I bought my BB Curve 8520 less than two weeks ago.


I've installed MSN Messenger App, that worked only for 3 days and then stopped, saying that it's not possible to contact the server (even though I'm connected to wi-fi networks and have free access to Internet because of my mobile plan). WhatsApp NEVER worked. And Facebook App works only sometimes (though the chat almost NEVER works).

 

What's wrong with my device...? Is it normal?

You're correct this is not normal :Surrender: Which OS are you?:

 

If you have a mobile data plan which is GPRS or 3g not WAP supported only, What App should work.. With your remaining Applications by default these works with Blackberry internet plan. Yes Facebook 2.0 or greater version works with Wifi..

Can you find Options> Device> Device and status information> Os 6.0... Els try to find device information somewhere it will tell your OS versions.. 

 

 

if you are using curve 8520 ideally you cannot use greater than OS 5.0. Try to find If its below Os 5.0 ( something like OS 4.0.xx) then try to upgrade it to OS 5.0. Might help.
