    ood day to all, i recently purchased a BB 9780. i am from Manila Philippines and my carrier is globe telecoms. i wanted to download several apps in the app world store and one of them is yahoo messenger.

    i am subscribed to a data service plan and all my settings for APN and browsing are correctly installed. however when i tried downloading YM (which is a free app) an error message says that Yahoo messenger is not available for download in the BB app world. this also goes to all free apps i tried to download. reinstalled the app world many times but whenever i download just 1 app it still shows the same error. i am new on BB and this would be my 2nd unit so far.

    I badly need help from a BB techie and subject matter expert:confused

    Is App World supported in the Philippines yet?

    If it's not, then you won't be able to use it to download apps

    Just checked, and it is supported there, so that's not your problem... http://www.blackberry.com/app_includ...bility_en.html

    Yahoo! Messenger is actually preinstalled in the OS, and you don't need to download it seperately.

    Have you tried plugging into Desktop Manager, clicking on Applications, and checking it from the list to install to your phone?

    The message that 'application (name) is not available for download' usually relates to a problem with the payment option - either not selected or not valid. To check this go to App World on a pc, sign in and check the details.

    I have a similar issue. I dl'ed an app called brew world off of app world. I receive notifications that there is an update available. I go into my app world and sure enough it says it has an update but when I go to do it, it says something like its not available to dl from app world (yet I dl'ed it from there and I get notifications about the upgrade and see it there)
