Will i be able to download blackberry app world on my 8520 when i get this..?

Hey, okay so I got my Blackberry curve 8520 the other day, & I love it, but the I can't get appworld. When I try downloading it, vit says my phone does not reach the requirements. Now I'm guessing this is because it doesn't have like unlimited internet, or data plan as i believe it is called? So if I get the one month T-mobile (uk) free email & internet plan, will it let me download the app world? I have 2gb memory card, I live in England, my provider is t-mobile as I've said & it's the 8520 model, thanks Smiley Happy

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. We cannot know what service plans every carrier sells...they control that...and are therefore your best source of information about that.

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!
