Right, I've been having a real problem downloading things. I wanted to download snapchat to my bb z10 because it said I could on the internet, so I tried it, it downloaded but then when I went to click on it, it says 'unable to open file' why is this? It's not just with snapchat, it's with anything, kik, instagram, everything. I know I can get them on the bb z10 because my friend has the same phone as me and has the apps that I somehow can't get. Also how do I update my software?
