Changes to Blackberry AppWorld charging

On and from 28 October 2016, Telstra will no longer offer you the ability to charge purchases made on Blackberry AppWorld to your Telstra account.


If you’re a current user of the service, you can continue to make purchases up until 28 October 2016 on Blackberry AppWorld and have the purchase charged to your Telstra account, with the charges appearing on your next bill (depending on your billing cycle).


Following the closure of this service, you can continue to buy apps and games on the Blackberry AppWorld via alternative payment options, such as a credit card or PayPal account.
