BlackBerry World hangs when opened

On my Z10, I get the spinning blue thing for HOURS, BlackBerry world never gets to the point where I can interact with it.

 

I don't even know where to start in dealing with this. Obviously, I have restarted, pulled battery, etc, etc.

 

Any help appreciated.

 

 

Thanks,

Jeff

Jeff,

 

  • On your Z10, go to your Music or Games icon.
  • Tap the lower left three dots overflow icon and touch BlackBerry World.
  • Now, BlackBerryWorld should start for you.

No, it's not. I don't know where you read or heard that, but that is wrong.
