Re: Cant install .apk files

You can't disable it unless you want to root the phone and install a custom ROM.

To get around the restriction, download Android Central's Sideload Wonder Machine. It works really nice as long as you follow the install instructions.

It is installed on the computer. This is the link to the main thread. You would need to pick the version based on your computer OS to download and instructions.

Branded phones regardless what provider do not allow the installation or non market apps.

Workaround: sideload wonder machine

Copy it in google, do some reading and install non-market apps as long as they doen't require root access.

Yep it was only AT&T that decided to restrict the non-market Apps. All other carrier branded phones and unlocked phones have the ability to install non-market applications.
