    Have you tried:
    Settings>Applications>Unknown Sources, maybe it got unchecked.

    The simplest solution is often the right one!!!

    Its because At&T locks down their phones hard core! The best way to get those 3rd party apps to work would be to root the phone using the clockwork method from theunlock3r and then install a custom rom. I did that with mine and it works great!

    or you could just use adb install / Sideload Wonder Machine / Or an old version of HTC Sync that has sideloading.

    I am at work right now but could you elaborate on sIde loading? What is the easiest way? I don't like doing it in the adb shell. Is there an easier faster way?

    install the SDK
    put the SDK tools directory into your path

    Start->Run->cmd
    adb install angrybirds.apk


    it doesnt get much easier then that...unless you install the old version of HTC Sync.
