Default installing 3rd party apps requires downgrade?

Please Login to Remove!

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:
  • BlackBerry 4.0.2 Systest Software
  • BlackBerry Attachment Service
  • BrickBreaker
  • WTLS Security Package
  • SSL/TLS Security Package
  • JavaScript Package
  • Help
  • MemoPad
  • Password Keeper
  • Phone
  • TTY Support
  • Tasks

Why can't I keep the newer device apps and load the 3rd party apps?

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.
