BlackBerry World is a multimedia content service where you can buy applications, games, themes, for your BlackBerry smartphone.
BlackBerry ID is your single sign in to BlackBerry sites, services, and applications. You created your BlackBerry ID when you first set up your BlackBerry smartphone.
A BlackBerry ID links BlackBerry World to your BlackBerry® Curve™ 8530. You can purchase applications at BlackBerry World.
BlackBerry World keeps track of your purchases so you can re-download and install apps for free in case you ever have to reset or replace your BlackBerry Curve 8530.
You can store credit card or PayPal™ information in your BlackBerry ID to make purchases.
Certain applications may not be compatible with your BlackBerry Curve 8530. While browsing in BlackBerry World, only compatible applications are visible.
Note: RIM or your BES administrator may remove some applications from BlackBerry World to prepare for an update or because of a policy.
