    1. Hi
      I have wiped my bb plenty times, I have upgraded and downgraded over and over again.
      My HRT has no entries and have selected register now countless times.
      My service books also have no entries.
      On my deskop software under applications there is no x or + to add or remove browser/email setup/core applications/device software. It is dimmed and just shoes 'required', where all other apps on the page show installed.
      How do I get the application loader to allow me to add those required apps onto my phone?
      Thanks, Jesse
