Appworld Question
 
Stupid question lol...

Do the blackberry curve "2" aka the 8530 for verizonwirless have appworld support?

What do you mean "App World support"?

You can access BB App World if you have a BB data plan and are in a location where it is allowed. The US is one of the countries where it is allowed.

Re: Appworld Question
 
So If I have the 8530 and Verizon Wireless, I would pay 30 dollars for my data plan and that is it? I would have access to the appworld?

Re: Appworld Question
 
A Blackberry data plan and yes you would have access. Still have to pay for apps though.

Okay, so the plan I have now for my android, when i activate my blackberry would be the same price etc? I was just asking if this 8530 still can download these apps.

You have to call you carrier for pricing.

Re: Appworld Question
 
Well my data plan is 30 bucks for data on my android now. Is there any cost that blackberrt itself has for its "own" plan?

NJBlackBerry 09-18-2011 09:18 PM

Re: Appworld Question
 
Yes. You need to contact your carrier to activate the BB data plan and cancel the Android data plan.

Re: Appworld Question
 
Wouldnt it be the same data plan regardless of operating system? Its just 30 dollars a month for unlimited data..?

Verizon doesn't have unlimited plans for BlackBerry.

Re: Appworld Question
 
Okay, Ill have to contact them because I am grandfathered in to their unlimited data plan right now.

Re: Appworld Question
 
Yes you will keep your unlimited plan that is 29.99, they don't change the data plan when you switch phones if you are grandfathered in.

I am still in the unlimited plan - grandfathered in I suppose. Shows unlimited on MyVerizon. New subscribers don't have that option - you are correct on that.

Thank you! This answered my question. I just pay the 29.99 i have now and i am grandfathered in. But The data plan doesnt change strictly based off the fact of the operating system! Thank you!

Re: Appworld Question
 
No problem I have had the same unlimited data plan since I bought the Pearl on Verizon five years or so ago. I have gone from Blackberry to Android and plan has never changed, sucks for the new people that have to pay 30 just to get 2GB.

You had best check -- the switch of OS may remove your grandfathering. Read carefully -- the person who gave you the answer that you wanted had switched from one BB to another.

Re: Appworld Question
 
No I just switched from a Droid Pro was just saying I have had the same plan since I started with BB. But I have moved OS and gone back and my unlimited has stayed the same.

Re: Appworld Question
 
And you need a specific Blackberry data plan. And Verizon will add it anyway if you buy a BB on their network.

See the FAQ for more information.

Sydman 09-19-2011 07:37 PM

Re: Appworld Question
 
Verizon does not have Blackberry specific plans like they used, when they made you pay 29.99 for BIS and 44.99 for the BES. Like mine is just the old unlimited for smartphones and then they have the new crappy plans that are overpriced. And that plan has been the same for my Droids and Blackberries. Like my second line my fiance' didn't have a plan when they changed in July so she has the 2GB for 30 bucks. Rip off
