Hi and Welcome to the Forums!
Please check this page to ensure you meet the minimum requirements (including if it is available in your country):
If it is available in your country and you feel you meet the device-level system requirements, then contact your carrier to ensure that you meet the service plan (from them) requirements for access (via their network) to AppWorld.
Further, the latest version of AppWorld is currently accessible solely via your carrier data network -- WiFi is not used to access AppWorld under any circumstances. You must therefore subscribe to an adequate level data plan in order for AppWorld to function.
Further still, do be aware that AppWorld is merely a portal, vending apps developed mainly by others. As such, it is not your exclusive procurement source -- there are others that you can try:
I have found that there are very few apps that are exclusive to AppWorld. You can search the on-line catalog and then search out other procurement sources, including quite often the developer website itself.
Lastly, do understand that RIM does not have unilateral control over the availability of AppWorld. Rather, a triad of entities must agree -- RIM, the wireless service provider, and the government. As the primary for-profit entity in that triad, I've always suspected that RIM is not the one who would be impeding the process.
