    Hi,

    I just updated my German QWERTZ Palm Pre GSM to Firmware 1.3.1 and now I cannot access the App Catalog. It only says: App Catalog Unavailable. Try again later..

    But all I do is try. I want to download applications for Twitter etc. Without them the phone is no fun What should I do?

    How have you activated your phone? With o2/vodaphone simcard or your local telecompany's simcard?

    I'm in the states and it seems as if the app. cat. is down. I had just installed mvapp to clear up some space and when i went to d/l from the app. cat. it displayed a screen saying it was unavailable?!?

    Darn, so it's worldwide. Hmm, maybe Palm should get their a**es together and fix this "major issue", else I think I will ditch the phone, sell it and move on to Motorola Droid instead

    Its blocked by Palm, for some reason it doesnt matter that our phones were sold as unlocked. So unless you live in any of the o2/telefonica countries the access is blocked.

    The terms of use that you get to sign after upgrading to 1.3.1 also states that Palm got the option to deny use of the app catalog. Might have been there before the upgrade too but atleast that what it says.

    Think they're worse than Apple. Denying access to people not in the official country? Man that's just plain stupid. Why not give us access to free apps at least? C'mon Palm, be gentle and open minded, no wonder why I shouldn't have baught this device in the firstemmig place

    No longer down, but I went to download an app, and it says "Downloading," but nothing's happening. Anyone else?

    i activated the phone without any problem with my vodafone ( vodafone romania, so local telecompany) sim card, but only after i updated to 1.3.1 . i could manually edit the data configuration at the activation screen and all worked out flawleslly. before upgrading, the phone didnt even recognised my sim card!

    But is anyone getting downloads to actually work? I'm just getting a "downloading" bar that never moves.

    <--- Its still down here (Sweden)

    Would be nice if you could add your location instead of just saying that its working. After all Palm seems to have blocked it based on location so it would be interesting know where its working.

    tomi666: Are you talking of hacking the phone to run 1.1.3 App Catalog or some other tweak? At the moment I dont need any apps so im fine, just sad that its blocked for some but I guess that must be sorted soon. I mean they cant lauch it to the rest of Europe without a App Catalog, can they?

    Yes. Hmm, I think I will sell mine Pre and get an Android device, because without any apps, the phone is a dead ringer

    Down in Denmark @ TDC Network.
