    Hi All,
    I am a owner of a new Captivate. My first Android Phone.
    I d/l the Sirius XM App from Sirius, but when I try to install it, I get an error message on my phone that says "Install Blocked. For security, your phone is set to block installation of applications not sourced in Android Market"

    Can anyone help me please???

    thanks

    Also you might need to check Unknown Sources if you find the app elsewhere and download it to your phone and try to install it.

    settings>applications>unknown sources needs to be checked.

    AT&T has blocked all non-market apps from being installed.

    Wow. That is completely insane. Sell Android phones then cripple them like iPhones.

    It is! Atleast someone came up with a sideloading program so AT&T customers can join in our fun

    Doesnt that kind of negate the purpose of having Open Source programs? I predict a class action suit in the near future, unless theres a viable reason why.

    Well, yes and no I suppose. Yes because you cant load up special apk files (like creating new keyboard layouts and betas) and no because well, the apps in the market ARE open sourced.

    I suppose they are doing it to protect the consumer and cut back on issues with phones. Very Apple mentality, they know whats best. FAIL

    agreed, FAIL to the max. Its just really wierd that they would not allow that...Im sure someone over at XDA will find a way to change this.

    I'd just like to go on record and say that the "Sideload Wonder Machine" is AWESOME!
