OS 6 install on Bold 9700 - App World and other problems.

I just upgraded to OS 6 from 5 via BB Desktop. The interface is nice but I can't access App World, old settings, data card info, etc. Icons are missing and I don't know what to do. How do you browse, install and upgrade 3rd party apps? Any advice or tutorials available?

Re: OS 6 install on Bold 9700 - App World and other problems.

Remember, some of your old OS 5 third party applicaton may not work well, or correctly, in OS6.

 

To browse... find the internet browser, the blue earth looking icon.

To install AppWorld, (if it's not already installed?, look in ALL folders.. scroll through your tabs for Favorites, ALL, etc.) use your browser to go to this URL: www.blackberry.com/appworld

You need to post more detail here.. did you actually do what I asked to install it again? or what?

 

If you've done that, and still cannot find it, try using your Universal Search icon at the top of your homescreen... type in App World.

1. On your homescreen, press the Menu key > SHOW ALL, so that SHOW ALL is checked.
2. Look in EACH folder on your device... Applications, Instant Messengers, Downloads, etc.
If you still don't see it, look at Options > Advanced > Applications. Do you see it listed there?

You asked in your initial post about how to browse. That's why I explained what the browser icon looked like.

Install and uninstall which apps?

You can install and uninstall from AppWorld.

You can find and install many apps from mobihand.com, handango.com and dozen other websites, as well as many developer websites.

 

To uninstall an applicaton, on your device, go to your Application Management screen, scroll to the app you want to delete, and press the Menu key > Delete

Okay. I misunderstood your response. I've downloaded and 'reinstalled' App World. The icon has reappeared. I've used it to manage my applications.

I misstated when saying 'browse' meaning browse my BB not the internet. Regardless, you've helped me and my problems are solved. Thanks!
