I'm new to Blackberry and I can't download the App World

Hi all.

I got my new curve 8520 two days ago, and I've been trying to download the app world and it's not been successful.

I can still use the internet to browse, I can use the facebook/twitter/myspace apps but I just can't get to the app world.

 

Can anyone help me out please?

Re: I'm new to Blackberry and I can't download the App World

I am having the same problem I got this phone less than a month ago:

 

Curve 8520 v4.6.1.314

I downloaded app world and used it and it worked fine. Today I had an icon saying there is an update, so I updated and it said error and uninstalled app world, I keep going to www.blackberry.com/appworld and reinstalling and nothing happens it returns to the same window.

 

Please help!

Re: I'm new to Blackberry and I can't download the App World

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!

Please check this page to ensure you meet the minimum requirements (including if it is available in your country):

If it is available in your country and you feel you meet the device-level system requirements, then contact your carrier to ensure that you meet the service plan (from them) requirements for access (via their network) to AppWorld.

Lastly, do be aware that AppWorld is merely a portal, vending apps developed mainly by others. As such, it is not your exclusive procurement source -- there are others that you can try (e.g., Handango, Handmark, BPlay, GetJAR or Mobihand). I have found that there are very few apps that are exclusive to AppWorld. You can search the on-line catalog and then search out other procurement sources, including quite often the developer website itself.

Good luck!
