blackberry is offering free apps... where are the app then..??/there are only 2 free apps that they are offering at the moment which arent even useful... still disappointed....
You need to make sure you download the new blackberry app world first before you are able to get the free apps. Then it will be at the top of your app world.
when will Shazam Encore be available for free as promised by blackberry. I tried downlaoding and its says "purchase"
Hey all "Loyal Rim Customers",
Are you happy with Rim's generous offering, in appreciation for accepting the recent outage and our loses?
#1 Bubble Bash 2 - a low rated game
#2 DriveSafe.ly Pro - Free of charge for a limited time (what is the limited time a few weeks, month a year?)
In 2 days that's all they could come up with? Worthless!
I think we need to let them know by Twitter, Facebook, MySpace and every place else you're able to post your outrage!
We are lost services and they can't honor what they promised?
Signed a 2yr contract to upgrade to the 9780 to get os6 to find (like everyone else) that it was so bad that Rim decided we should upgrade again to os7 oh and you must buy a new phone because it won't work with your current phone you and there won't be updates for os6 because they want us so disgusted that we'll blindly spend our money on a new phone so we can upgrade!
But wait there is another new os for 2012 that will make Rim popular again of course you'll need to buy another phone!
Does Rim think we're that stupid? Suffering through service outages and worthless upgrades just so they can continue to take our money!
They have already renamed the QNX operating system to BBX (before its even released) making it sound like they have something else in the wings to release once it has made them enough money so they can scam their "loyal customers" once again. Hopefully they'll have reduced their "loyal customers" (the remaining fools) enough to finally fold!
Thanks for letting me rant but do seriously think about how Rim really regards their customers and make the move to any one of the better alternatives.
What's the point of a free app if it's not available to all users? How is Blackberry giving $100 worth of free apps to its users if the apps are a patchwork of availability and there are, thus far, no replacements for those who cannot load specific apps.
It's like Blackberry wants its users to flee in frustration.
I tried downloading VLINGO. I got a version (???) but the PLUS needs $19.99!!! Where are the FREE apps that RIM promised???
The first free app is now available.
iSpeech DriveSafe.ly Pro.
The app, which normally sells for $19.99, reads your text messages and emails aloud while you're driving so you can concentrate on the task at hand. It will also let you use voice commands to respond via text, replay a message, or initiate a call.
Today is the 19th so why aren't the apps free? Or why haven't we as blackberry users been informed of this? I've had my blackberry nearly 2 years now and I'd advise anyone who wants one, don't bother! They're slow, it hardly ever works, mine's broken, its been broken for over 6 months now and blackberry or phones 4 u won't do a thing about it yet I pay insurance! And I'm paying for 900 minutes that I can't even use! So anyone thinking about getting one, don't :)
Just want to be sure I've got this right...we can download them all as they are offered?
So the catch with this? If you try to download them and you don't have a data plan, just say like me, have their social networking plan for data you'll get part way through the download and it wont let you complete it. A box comes up that says if you wish to continue with this outside of your wifi connection...you don't have a data plan...contact your service provider.
In that sense, how is it really free? If they're not letting 'all' blackberry users access to there 'thank you'?
The only thing I want is the international radio because I want and need it. So put it free

Marcelo, 18 Oct 2011Very sad, indeed. Poor guys... Android is not good.... :(If android is no good then it looks like it certainly better than blackberry... When the consumer talks apple and especially rim guys listen...
