Blackberry Curve 8330 from Sprint not recieving the new Apps

i have a blackberry curve 8330 from Sprint. I am missing about 80 percent of the applications. My girlfriend has the same phone and same version 1.0.0.28 and she is getting all the new featured apps. I cannot even find Shazam on my phone, it says no search results found. I have downloaded and reinstalled the app world 3 times and had the phone hard reset and just got a completely new blackberry and the same thing is happening. Everyone keeps telling me they have never seen anything like it at Sprint and i am pretty sick of hearing that. I would just like to know what is wrong because I have done all the troubleshooting. Please help I would really like to use my phone to its fullest.

Re: Blackberry Curve 8330 from Sprint not recieving the new Apps

I have the same problem. I completely removed the worlkd app rather than installing over it and I now have access to more apps. Be sure to also update your balckberry OS to the latest version.

 

With that said, I still cannot get Shazam even though it is supported on the 8330 curves. I got an OTA link but wheninstalled, I was getting a weird background not found error. I'm working through this issue now.

 

Does anyone have a confirmed link for Shazam taht work on the 8330 curves? I have the 8330m from Sprint.

 

Thanks!

I have the same phone as you and have the same problem.  Oddly enough, Shazam WAS there a few months ago and it's nowhere to be found in appworld and Shazam's website sends you to appworld to get it!

Please join our thread in progress:

 

8330m and AppWorld

 

The issue is that it's an "m" version of the phone and App World does not appear to recognize them as regular 8330 devices.
