    I have carried a 9700 for several years that developed a problem with rebooting itself without warning. It's lead a rough life, and was due for retirement anyway. I would like to try the Q10, but found a used 9700, and thought I would use it till prices on the Q came down a bit. The old phone was OS 6.0 bundle 2949 (v6.0.0.668 platform 6.6.0.236). I loaded it with slacker years ago, and had used it ever since. The new phone is OS V5.0.0.602 (platform 5.1.0.112). I have been trying for days to load slacker to it, with no luck. I used DM to transfer from the old phone to the new one, but some things didn't make it, slacker for one. It seems these days that the only place to get slacker for a BB is from the app world, so I created an account and tried. First of all, it allowed me to create the account, and accomplish the first step (get app world plug in), which I installed. But when I go to step two (connect device) it doesn't let me click connect, or next. Not to mention, no matter how many times I sign in, it still says "Sign In" at the top of the page. I have tried a mobile update to bring my new 9700 up to V6.0, but it keeps telling me that the device has all current updates. I'm going stir crazy at work without slacker, then have come home every night this week trying to sort this out. I can't sleep, and I think my hair is starting to fall out, please HELP>

    After reading a few old threads and thinking about it, it seems that I loaded a beta version of 6.0 on the older phone. But it had been working so well for so long that I had forgotten about it. However, that doesn't solve the problem with app world. And I have tried various methods of extracting slacker directly from the old phone with no luck. Still no ideas.

    I realize the 9700 is an old phone, and not the hot new kid on the block. But I'd have thought someone could help me out with app world.

    Download BB World (formally App World) and try that. Otherwise try updating to OS 6, it is much better and may solve your problem.

    BBworld won't let me sign in on my phone, or on my laptop. I sign in, it won't let me do anything, and still says "sign in" at the top of the page. I sign in again, repeat. I deleted my BB ID, and made a new one, which does the same thing. I don't really want to put 6 on this phone because it's a memory hog. Half the web pages you go to get "closed, page too large", 5 seems faster, and loads more pages. I looked at the Berrylicious OS, but it looks like a real PITA to install. I'm getting old, and tired of having to get under the hood to make things run right. But I hate to buy a new phone because it'll just get wrecked at work.
