Re: Blackberry 8520 applications

There are many applications that work with your 8520, really too many to list here.

 

Have you visited AppWorld yet to look?

 

What errors are you having with Facebook?

Sure, it does.

 

Do you have the BlackBerry Data Plan from your mobile provider?

No, not that I know. I will try to download the application of Facebook with Appworld. But how do you do that? Connect your phone with the computer?

Re: Blackberry 8520 applications

Facebook, Appworld and most of the BlackBerry data functions will not work without having THE BlackBerry Data Plan on your mobile provider account.

 

Call your carrier and inquire to have it added.
