Desktop Manager does not recognize applications needing updates

My BB 9800 shows that several of my loaded applications have updates available, but the DM does not show the "+" icon for updating, it only shows the "x" icon for deleting.


How can I get the DM to recognize these applications that need upgrading?  I have +20MB worth of applications to upgrade and I don't want to burn all that data off my plan.

Re: Desktop Manager does not recognize applications needing updates

Hi Richard


Did you install these applications via BlackBerry® App World?  If so, plug in your BlackBerry® smartphone to your PC and go to www.blackberry.com/appworld to sign into BlackBerry® App World.  You can then access My World and update all of your applications this way as not to use up any of your data plan.
