Installation Of Apps In Playbook



I recently purchased a playbook and have setup link with my curve using tethering, but i am not able to download apps. Whenever I try , i get the message " We cannot connect you to Blackberry app world. Pls ensure that your device is connected to the wireless network and try again'. I do not have a wi-fi connection and the curve is the only mode i can connect to the net. Is there a solution to this.

Thanks in advance.

You cannot download apps through your phone. You can only download via wifi onto the PB directly.
