Cannot register for Port-A-Thon!

Hi there!

 

I've got some problem when trying to register for the coming up Port-A-Thon event.

 

Got here: https://www.blackberrydeveloperevents.com/events/webcast/registration/register.html?scoid=1082039415...

 

It says I must log in with my BBID, I agree and click Sign in, but this is what I get:

 

BlackBerry ID sign in error

An error has occurred while signing into BlackBerry ID. Please choose one of the following options:

They are changing something,  previous portathons wasnt requiring to log in with BBID, just to enter email. Btw, i tried now, and i can log in with my BBID, try again.

One of my friends also regestered 5 mins ago without any problem. I tried again - and again, same result.

Gave my acc details to my friend (who successfully registered for the event), and he got the same error with my acc.

 

So the problem is with the account somehow... :\

 

Since another friend tried with his own account, and he got the mentioned error too.

I hope they fix it before the start - or give us some time extension to do our ports.

I had similar issue and found a solution - remove non-latin1 chars from first name/last name of my BBID account.

 

Some longer recipe here: here.
