    Hi. I recently purchased bb 9700 and I cannot access the blackberry app world on my mac, cos the system is not supported. Any ideas????

    You download Blackberry App World on your phone and not on the Mac.

    yeah, but the problem is that when I try to log in, it keeps loading all the time and when I press escape it tells me that I need to accept the user terms...

    You can do it just click agree ;) or if that doesn’t work try deleting and reinstalling it. Is it the desktop manager that you’re having the problems with???

    I got confused my bad :D you could try deleting the app altogether what you need to do is go into Setting/Applications/the select the option for Add-on then highlight appworld then press the x button and good bye then reinstall and if that fails then I suppose ill still help you out ;)

    Judging by your answer you clearly don't fully understand the BB in the first place.

    First off all:
    1) AppWorld has been updated at least 3 times since the 9700 was debuted - at the very least. The most recent being 3wks out.

    2a) Simplist solution - not always the best. NOTE: this will keep you non-productive for about 5mins total.
    Do a battery pull
    This is a hard reset but app installs/settings remain. Keep out for 1min, then back in. Then ensure you have a 3G/EDGE/GPRS connection (uppercase). Then launch - do not escape it and "Accept User license terms" - just like ANY software Desktop/Mobile regardless of OS this is required.

    2B) IF above doesn't work.
    Load Browser and goto Home Page (While in the Browser click on the Menu key {dominos like button} > Bookmarks> select Home Page).
    - if this was changed by your provider goto http://mobile.blackberry.com (directly on the 9700).
    Select "Visit BlackBerry App World" link.
    Select the link "Download BlackBerry App World", then on next page "Download Now".

    (direct link before "Download Now" is: http://mobileapps.blackberry.com/devicesoftware/index.do).

    You should be able to download and this will prompt you to RESTART the 9700; which you should if it did update it.

    Thats it should work; Unless App Permissions are restricted.

    Is this a PERSONAL BB or a CORPORATE BlackBerry?
