    Do you have BIS/BES plan? You should have 4 dots icon near your signal strength bar.

    i have 4 d0ts near my signal bar, do you need to set up a paypal account or something to download apps, i thought you would only need to do that if you were going to purchase an app, the ones i wanted were free.

    What kind of error are you getting while trying to download an app?
    I think if you'll post a screenshot we can understand better...

    Are sure you entering the password correctly? (Be carefully with special characters...)

    I used to have this problem too. Try taking out the sim-card and ONLY put back the battery. That should start up the phone. Try to enter your BB ID and password which will NOT register (cause there's no sim-card) carry on to shut down your phone, re-insert your sim-card. Try entering your BB ID and password again.

    It worked for me, hope it works for you too.

    Hope you enjoy your new phone and Welcome to Blackberry and Crackberry. I saw this thread too late.... but just to let you know, if you run in to this problem again, you can also delete the App World and Blackberry Protect and then reinstall them. My mom had an issue where her BB ID was refused on her Bold 9780. I deleted the App World and BB Protect and installed them back. This fixed the issue.
