I have a blackberry Curve 9300, with Os 6.0.049 or something like that. And when I downloaded the new os 6 software it didnt come with social feeds...Can I get it for my phone? Or is it not available for my model or something.

Social Feeds should be available for every version of OS 6.
Go to your PC and open Desktop Manager. Plug your phone in. In Desktop Manager, look for Applications. Social Feeds should be offered as a choice. DM will see that your phone does not have it and will offer it as a download when you click the " + " sign beside it.
Let us know if that helps.

I have a Blackberry Curve 9300 with Virgin Mobile Canada. About four weeks ago they, and their parent company Bell Canada, released OS 126.96.36.199XX. They promptly took it down because of a software incompatibility issue. I happened to be an early adopter who got it before it was removed. That version was missing Social Feeds.
I spoke to a customer support rep from Virgin who told me to go into the AppLoader under C://Program Files/Common FIles/Research in Motion/AppLoader, or something along those lines and use that program to install Social Feeds. Unfortunately, Social Feeds is never one of the apps on the list.
I waited for a few weeks, figuring that when they released the latest version again it would contain Social Feeds. Today they released version 188.8.131.524. From my understanding this version SHOULD contain Social Feeds. Yet when I installed it, it wasn't among the available components. It also doesn't appear on the Desktop Manager or the AppLoader. I have checked countless threads and message boards... I have contacted technical support. The app just doesn't exist for me.
My speculation is that the carrier has removed it. Though I question whether they even have the authority (and capability) to do something like that. If they do... I have lost any respect I have for RIM by allowing carriers to dictate and manipulate their innovation.
I'm posting this to let you know that you're not alone. I would really appreciate some response from RIM because I'm getting nowhere with Virgin Mobile (Bell Canada).
