Re: Access to the AppWorld while using bridge

GGastaris is right. Using either BlackBerry Bridge or Bluetooth tethering do not work. AppWorld refuses to recognise them.

If you are lucky enough to have a BlackBerry 7 phone, then I can confirm that using it as a wifi hotspot works a treat with AppWorld.
