  1. I have problems when I try to download blackberry app cause my country not on avaibility list. Would you like to let me know why and when it will be availible please? Saudi Arabia?

  2. Your country, like most Islamic countries, blocks anything fun or free. Can’t even use Skype in Dubai which was no fun.

  3. The blocking from blackberry not the country it blocks 10s other countries, so do you have another answer?

  4. I recently purchased bb bold 9700 from kuala lumpur Malaysia, it does not have bb app Icon inside it and when I download it says ur phone does not support this, my frnd having bb 8520 has this feature and he is using it. help plz

  5. Can they make the Blackberry App available in Kenya? I’d love to join and get some of the applications they have.

  6. The reply regarding GCC countries was quite a poor one, and quite unexpected, I don’t expect discrimination in a marketing related answer, it would be more proper if you could reply with some more logical and reasonable answer which provides a solution for BB users in Gulf region.

  7. I’m having the same challenge. I guess RIM should send a patch to this effect and make it available for those of us who want it.

  8. Does anyone out there who uses BB 9700 have a shortcut to this? If other BB models can download the apps, then I guess it’s a design fault. RIM kindly react and do something fast before I junk this expensive box!

  9. BIS services is available in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, as soon i got this service TURN ON by my mobile service provider, My BB application icon automatically got downloaded, also Maps Icon and BB Messenger Icon, To Use BB applications, messengers, Gps, Your BIS, Black berry Internet Services Should be Turned On always.
    if any one has any questions regarding BB 9700, can email me also at

  10. hey JR.. islamic countries didn’t block anything as you think.. by the way I was christian but now I finally changed to the right.. don’t think like animals.. be open minded and take a tour inside yoursilf and inside your religion u’ll fine how much you both are weak..

  13. For all those who are trying to download World app it’s simple, u just have to turn on ur wifi and download it from the bb website using wifi not ur sim service. Jr with all respect ur comment shows how uneducated and shallow you are. It’s not only in “islamic” countries where World app is blocked. So back to the main thing. Use wifi to download it and enjoy guys! 🙂

  14. Hi.. I am using blackberry bold 9700. My headache is that everytime I want to connect and download something using WLAN, the phone always selects home operator. Even when I had set the SIM preferences as WLAN and/or WLAN Only, still it asks for a confirmation to use airtime.
