Re: App World and Curve 8520

 

AppWorld does have certain requirements, including your country of service, and that you have the BlackBerry Data Plan on your mobile provider account. Do you?


System Requirements

To ensure that your BlackBerry® smartphone will support BlackBerry App World™, it must have the following system requirements:

  1. BlackBerry® Device Software version 4.2 or higher
  2. BlackBerry smartphones with trackballs or SurePress™ touch screen
  3. To use BlackBerry App World, you require a service plan that includes access to the BlackBerry® Browser

How to check your operating system from your BlackBerry smartphone:

  1. Click "Options" from your BlackBerry smartphone
  2. Select “About”, then click. Your BlackBerry smartphone operating system information will be displayed

Re: App World and Curve 8520

I advise contacting your carrier to be sure that it is even available to you via their network. They must participate in it and it must be available to them for participation. If either of those are not met, then you have no access since it must come through your carrier network.

 

Good luck!

Re: App World and Curve 8520

Im in the UK and using T-Mobile and i've been told by blackberry customer support that t-mobile does support the app world as she has it herself.

I have v4.6 and i bought the phone a few days ago.

I really have no clue as to why this is happening.

 

Looking forward to your help .

I don't have a clue either. Can you detail what is happening exactly ?
