My PlayBook developed a problem a few days ago where the Linkedin account which was connected to my Playbook's account has vanished. Once I try to add the Linkedin account again, it fails. I get an error telling me that my Login information is wrong and needs to be updated. This is of course not the case as I've tried numerous times and have had no issue connecting to Linkedin using the same login name and password on the Playbook's browser. I've rebooted the playbook a couple of times and still it does not work - all of my other accounts on my Messages application however work just fine. Did Linkedin do something on the backend that is messing up with how the PlayBook connects to it?
As another forum post shows, I am not the only person with this problem: http://forums.crackberry.com/blackberry-playbook-f
Thanks for any help

Thanks for posting this issue. I am having the same issue and hope thank either BB or LinkedIn will fix this so that we all can receive the value expected from the Playbook.

Playbook users are a small enough group already without a linkedin subset!
If it is a change to the way linkedin works, this is the kind of trouble playbooks will get into if blackberry don't update the OS.

Are any of your premium Linkedin users? There seem to be a few options which only premium users can access. I am wondering if this may have something to do with it now.

Sent a tweet to @BlackberryHelp and all they told me is to contact PlayBook direct support...but of course I've had the PB for well over 90 days so I am not eligible. Is there another line we can reach them at or does anyone (magically) have a PB they purchased within the last 90 days for help?
Interesting theory on the LinkedIn Premium bit.. did they make recent changes to that service?

I've tweeted BlackberryHS and also sent a support ticket to Linkedin. I've had my Playbook for over two years. I definitely am out of the 90 day window. I wonder if Linkedin have a solution. Couldn't be bothered paying for incident support especially when we have to call the states. I wonder if I could get some response walking into their offices in Sydney.
