    I saw that someone had a similar problem with the BMO app that was not, as I know, resolved.
    I have an unlocked Z10 on T-mobile, I wanted to down load the CBC radio app ( I have the CBC news app).It say that it is for BB10 devices, my guess is that it is blocked not due to the device, but blocked due to region/country ( T-mobile).

    the app was released about a year ago ( jan 2013) but on BBworld it says that it is not available for my device ( the download size is 0 kb). but if you go through the CBC's link to BBworld it says that all carriers are supported, my device is supported but that the only country supported is Canada. If I go back home could I download it there or is this restricted by sim ? Although it appears I am trying to subvert the country restrictions, I stream cbc radio on a pc in my office all the time.

    what would happen if I pulled the SIM, logged into BBworld over wifi and tried to redownload it ? would it still block me ?

    Why are you listening to cbc radio lol.
    Just kidding.

    Are you able to remove sim when back in Canada or even try with network shut off over wifi?

    I would assume BBW monitors IP addresses as well so trying to access it from another country on wifi likely won't work either.

    Could be wrong but just my thoughts...

    I think that the CBC ( although much maligned) is something that you only miss when you cant get it. I can only stand so much of " dingo and the baby" and agricultural forcasts. And really how else can one keep up with all the machinations of the rob ford scandal in real time.

    Q is a good show ( at least I think so). I might be able to get a rogers SIM sent to me in order to get the 10.2 OTA and then I might be able to download it, then swap the sim and see what happens. My guess is that region restrictions are for download/installation only that it wont check by IP or location before launching if its succesfully loaded.

    Yes I don't think cbc will be checking anything if you get it loaded on your phone and would run fine.

    Have you tried tunein? I've found some cbc stations on that app....
