Any one know how to install AT&T blocked Apps from Android market without rooting the phone??

I have been searching on the net. Most people said turn on airport mode or takeout the SIM card. I tried both but neither one work.

Anyone have other ways to install those apps? (Calling card is the one I actually want to install)


Thanks a lot,

Thanks a lot,

In the past doing this has worked, though, I have not tried it myself on the Inspire yet.
  • Power down your phone
  • Take out your sim
  • Boot phone
  • Get on wifi
  • Go to the appstore and install your app
  • Power phone down, replace sim and restart

There is some data on the sim that prohibits users from finding/installing certain apps from the store. It should be noted, that this is NOT a solution for apps that require the phone to be rooted to function properly.

Let me know how it goes.

Can you send it from your computer to your phone? Android.com/market.

Crap it's even blocked there.

I've always been able to just put the phone in airplane mode, then connect to wifi, then load market and have access to whatever I need - never had to pull SIM

I think the problem is with the app. I have an unlocked Nexus One in addition to my inspire and I can not even get that app to install on the N1, which is unlocked and wifi only since the sim is in the Inspire now.

I used the airplane mode to put PDA net on my phone no problem, it was not available when the phone was hooked to at&t's network. You might want to connect the developer and see if there are specific network requirements.

I just got pdanet, put your phone in airplane mode then turn on WiFi. Reopen market and search for your app.

I can't find the app if I run Market on the phone (with SIM pulled and wifi).
If I search the the developer (ALEJANDRO TROCCOLI) on the phone(again, no SIM), I only see the Pro version. If I search it on my PC I get the free and Pro.


Thanks again,
