My wife just got a new Galaxy S 2 phone and we've been installing various apps we heard about through various 'best apps" kind of articles. We tried downloading and installing Juice Defender but the download site says it's not available through our carrier. I assume this means AT&T has blocked it? Is this because of some of the problems I read about when I googled it? It's extremely popular and as far as I can tell is the only app of its kind that lets you create custon schedules to turn things on and off.
Does anyone know if AT&T has in fact blocked it and if so, if there are plans to reverse this at some point?

Did you try downloading it through the market or through the website itself? It's in the market, so you should be able to get it in there without a problem. However, you should go into settings, then applications and then check "unknown sources" so you can install non market applications.

Yes, attempted this through the Market. Other app downloads are fine, but it won't let us download Juice Defender specifically. Since we've only had the phone for a day, this is all new. Can we just go to another website and download it directly?

Huh, I just tried to download it in the market, and you're right, it says "this item is not available through your carrier." Interesting.
But, if you go to JuiceDefender - Beta that one will download? Very odd.

Probably just an Android Market glitch. It happens sometimes. I downloaded it last night after I hard reset my phone and it worked fine. Wait a day or two and it will probably be back up.

Well, I have a number of Android devices registered to my Google Account, so when I go to market dot android dot com, I can click to download apps, and then a dropdown list allows me to say which device I want it pushed to.
For Juice Defender, the Galaxy S II is greyed out, but the others are not. A message also tells me that my carrier has prevented the app from going to my phone.

Are you running UCKH7 or UCKK6?
UCKK6 is known to have Market issues because Google hasn't updated things to handle the new fingerprint.
