About adding applications

Depending on your wireless service provider and region, you might have the option to add or update applications using the BlackBerry App World™ storefront, the BlackBerry® Desktop Software, or the Application Center. You might also be able to download applications from a web page (try visiting mobile.blackberry.com from your BlackBerry device), or from an application offered by your wireless service provider.

Additional terms and conditions might apply to software and services made available through the BlackBerry App World™ storefront, the BlackBerry Desktop Software, or the Application Center. Data charges might apply when you add or use an application over the wireless network. For more information, contact your wireless service provider.
