App World will not work download

I bought a new PlayBook for my wife for Christmas and I am trying to set it up for her before I wrap it, etc etc etc. When I go to App World and then to the My World tab, I get the spinning Green Circle that will not leave...and nothing progresses when I attempt to download a new App.

 

Internet Browsing works fine, so connectivity is not the issue. There was a posted ticket previously answered that has a work around for "create a new BlackBerry ID", but when I tried to do so and then to use it in App World, the PlayBook told me that I was not allowed to use anything other than the Original Blackberry ID with this PlayBook. (

 

Can anyone steer me in the right direction?

I forgot to mention that the End User License Agreement shows up, and has to be accepted, every time that I open App World.

If its a reported issue, I don't know of another workaround :smileysad:
