BT Smart Phone

Hi,

I have just bought a new BT Smart Phone. I am a bit disappointed with it as it does not come with the Google Play app for Android, just with Opera Mini, which is good for social networking sites like Facebook but is useless for any other Android app. You cannot even get the Met Office app or the BBC weather app with Opera.

I am really looking to know if there is a way of downloading the more popular apps. To my knowledge you cannot download the Google Play app as it has to come pre-instilled on the device.

If anyone can help I would be most grateful.

Thanks.

Hi,

That is the problem; Opera mobile apps store is really, really bad.

Re: BT Smart Phone

Have tried to do as was suggested but it would appear, as I previously thought, that unless the device has Google Play pre-instilled it is not possible to download apps.
