Unhappy Can't download App World on my new Javelin

Please Login to Remove!

Just bought a new Javelin and I love it, but i can't download App World. I get the error message that my device doesn't support app world. I've downloaded all updates. I Googled the problem and found a suggestion to reinstall the battery, but that didn't work. Any suggestions? Sorry if there's a solution buried somewhere in this forum-couldn't find it.

Guess I haven't learned as much as I thought (this is my first Blackberry & I've only had it 5 days). Not sure what 1.028 is & my research wasn't enlightening.

This has happened to lots of people. AppWorld isn't ready for primetime unfortunately. They'll fix it, be patient. Some people have downloaded it, some get the same message you get. Nobody has figured out why for sure. They'll tell you to update the OS, use different browser, bla bla, but none of these things has proven to work consistently. Some just keep trying the same way and it downloads. EDIT: Your carrier (CGI?) could be the problem too.

That's what I was thinking. That's the reason I asked for the OP's location.

Thanks to you all. I'm in Anchorage AK. GCI is an Alaska carrier. I'd wondered if it was the carrier; however haven't had any problems downloading any thing else. I'll keep trying. Maybe I'll get lucky. Will keep checking here for any further advice.

Smile Ta Da!

You guys were right. Downloaded App World successfully shortly after my last post. Guess perseverance was all that was required. Did nothing differently. Thanks for the help

Appworld is apparently only available in the US, UK and Canada, at least according to the BB site.
