Re: App World : availability by country

See, that's BB problem.
Now we have app store available... But no laws have changed (as it as said by you), but recently, somehow BB sees, that they are ignorant.

Oh well, I think the profit/sales/market share loss will show them... But I am affraid that it is too late

@yessuz, it's not just a case of a country changing it's own laws. If that is what you believe, you're simply wrong.

Whether AppWorld is available or not in a certain country depends on two issues...

  1. Local laws and regulations of that country
  2. The local mobile provider signing agreements to support AppWorld to it's customers

Re: App World : availability by country

I don't get it. If country can provide and allow bb service then why not the appworld. Access to appworld is a part of our subscription

Re: App World : availability by country

See, that's the problem.
IE: you buy android phone and you get the app store working instantly.

You buy BB and you get nothing + additional charge for BB service. It's just shows, that company is/was ignorant. They didn't care. And now android is ruling in market share. And BB is loosing positions.

No, it's not a part of any subscription IF your mobile provider does not support it.

Read my post above, it does not have ONLY to do with your country or local laws.

No you don't. Even an Android device must have an adequate data plan to run the AppStore. It's not free.

And, you're wrong again. BlackBerry Data plan costs extra, and so does a data plan for an Android device.

 

I think you're just trolling. This isn't a junior high debate class. This is a user-to-user community support forum. We are not RIM employees, but volunteers who enjoy assisting other users. RIM personnel rarely comment on queries posted here. You would have noticed this in the EULA and message upon registration.

 

If you have complaints to RIM, please let them know. This is a volunteer support forum.
