What app are you trying to download? Are you connected to wifi When you attempt to download it?

Are you sure it's not a country specific app? Or that it's just not compatible with your specific device? I've never heard of a carrier blocking an app. Can you post a screen shot from the PlayStore of what your seeing?
Greetings Jessy and All! Hint: simply switch to VPN (search for Seed4Me VPN) to unblock voice calls apps, etc. if they are blocked by your provider. That's it!

VPN encrypts traffic from hackers or ISP, also it's a good practice to use a VPN in public places (cafe, hotel). So, it's OK.
