You need to have a BlackBerry Data Plan from your carrier/network/service provider in order to use BlackBerry Data features.

App World has been very flakey of late. I have had problems with downloads failing in mid-download, necessitating my quitting App World and restarting it. It's hit-or-miss and is probably network related.
