I had a handful of 3rd party apps (e.g. BBToday, Berry 411 Search, etc.) installed on my old Blackberry 7290, but the unit died and was replaced with a new 7290. When I try to use the Application Loader to install these apps on this new unit, it gives me 2 options: 1.
Leave the applications on the device unchanged (Recommended) Note: If I choose this option, I can only press the [Cancel] button at the bottom of the screen because the [Back] and [Next] buttons are greyed out. 2.
Replace the device's applications with the older version provided by the BlackBerry Desktop Software. Note: If I choose this option, I cannot simply add the new 3rd party apps I want to install -- I'm also forced to either Downgrade or Remove the following:
Why can't I keep the newer device apps and load the 3rd party apps?
- BlackBerry 4.0.2 Systest Software
- BlackBerry Attachment Service
- WTLS Security Package
- SSL/TLS Security Package
- Password Keeper
- TTY Support
Both of my BlackBerries were issued to me from my employer's IT department. I don't know of any policy that prevents me from loading 3rd party apps -- they'd seen the apps on my older BlackBerry and never cared.
