Blackberry app world not working?

Hi my Blackberry app world is not working. When i try to go on a message comes up saying "Upgrade your service to a plan that includes browsing and discover a world of possibilities ay BlackBerry App World. Contact your service provider for more details."

 

I have a Curve 8520 and i am with Orange in the UK and my plan has unlimited internet access. I can browse online and use bb messenger and send/receive emails.

 

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Re: Blackberry app world not working?

you may need the "BlackBerry Data Plan". Please check with your carrier about AppWorld usage.

Re: Blackberry app world not working?

Hello!

Please check this page to ensure you meet the minimum requirements:


Further, please check that AppWorld 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. All data plans are not necessarily created equal.

Good luck!

Re: Blackberry app world not working?

I'm having an issue with BB apps world also. I had the 8330 and upgraded to the 8530, My issue is that only 2 of the 10 or 15 apps I had on the 8330 show in my world, and neither of those are available for the 8530. And why aren't any of the other apps showing in My World? If you can help me it would make me very happy. Thank You

Re: Blackberry app world not working?

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!

 

If you successfully performed the PIN switch from your 8330 to your 8530, then MyWorld should display (after logging in with your PayPal credentials) all of your paid apps. It is unlikely to show your free apps -- AppWorld does not work very hard to track those for you. But, for paid apps, it tracks them so that you can shift your license from one device to another.

 

However, shifting to the 8530 depends on compatibility...if the developer did not release a version for the 8530, then you are out of luck.

 

Best.

please keep in mind that the 8500 series is a low budget series that is inferior to the 8300 series, despite some enhancements like a trackpad. With that in mind, it is possible that the developers of those missin apps did not bother porting their applications on the 8500 series.
