Blackberry app world for bb 8700v

I am not able to download bb app world on my 8700v as whenever I try to access the download page from browser on the phone, it says it does not fulfill system requirement. Blackberry desktop manager doesn't detect the phone when I connect phone via USB. Any ideas/suggestions?

Re: Blackberry app world for bb 8700v

So how can I download on older version of BBM? (assuming the newer version is not supported by the device eitherm however I did used to have the older version before so there must be a way of downloading it)
