Default new layout for mobile.blackberry.com = less free games?

Please Login to Remove!

I just looked at the site today and they changed the site design. A lot of the free games are no longer listed. I don't see a More link or a See All link.

Texas Hold em 2 is missing and a few others.

There is a new one called Typing Trooper, which is a boring game that helps you type.

What gives??

The site was transitioned over the weekend to a new format, and they're taking it in a new direction it seems.

I've also noticed that weather is no longer directly connected (it's now on weather.blackberry.com).

Desktop manager 4.2.0+ includes the switch device wizard which will transfer such things over. They will still need to be built for the deviced though so transfering from a wheel device to a ball device may fail or they may not work as expected.


I believe the typing game is for suretype devices only. Sort of a trainer to get you used to it.

I havent been able to connect to the page since they started changing things around. I have no problem loading any other website though. The error I keep getting is 'HTTP Error 500: Internal Server Error'

Why is that the reason?? I am soo confused? Because they want to make money on it now? There used to be like 10 free games, now there is only 4 or 5.

I do buy stuff. I bought Hearts and Miner2049er. Now give me my free games back!!
