Amazon App Store

The new Amazon App Store goes live on 3/22 but AT&T users will probably be left out due to the no sideloading policy.  Since there are going to be some Amazon exclusives as well as price differences (cheaper on Amazon) I have a feeling that AT&T will not change it's stance and that we will be effectively locked out.

Re: Amazon App Store

Totally agree.  AT&T really sucks with all the restrictions it be placing, a lot for no reason other than greed.  So we miss out on getting Angry Birds Rio for free.  And they wonder why customers are always cracking their phones.

I agree, on the Amazon site there is a link to be notified when ATT fixes this.  If enough of us complain there they may get the hint.

Re: Amazon App Store

I already submitted my emial adress to be notified on this issue. I'm thinking if we all start calling ATT about this issue that they will fix it.

Re: Amazon App Store

I just got off the phone with an ATT supervisor and he told me that he will call me when he gets any news when this issue has been rectified.  I suggest ATT customers begin calling into ATT about this issue to press them to get this completed.

Re: Amazon App Store

I hope someone from at&t is reading these posts.  For me, I am planning not to give at&t any of my money from purchase apps until they give me the options of installing and using 3rd party apps.

Re: Amazon App Store

If anyone ever needed an excuse to root their phone, Amazon just provided it.  I've never understood why AT&T blocked third-party apps on Android devices.  Hopefully this will push them over the edge and cause them to lift the restriction.

Re: Amazon App Store

I'm thinking that the update coming up for the Atrix might lift the restriction on third party apps. Lets hope so.
