I am having the exact same issue BuBBaBO listed.
I have un-installed, rebooted and re-installed App World many times. I've installed it through my computer and through my phone. I verified my Paypal address only has one e-mail connected to it. I have re-downloaded service books and ensured all permissions are set up properly. I can access e-mail and the internet without an issue.
I wiped my Blackberry earlier as I was having freezing issues and now I cannot access App World.

I have been able to use the App World many times before now without an issue.
I am hoping there is a solution to this, even if it's just a temporary issue.
EDIT: It seems to have been a temporary issue - I am now able to connect to App World with no problems.

I have not been able to connect for days. I'm receiving the same error message as noted here.
AppWorld v 1.10.33

what is the exact error message? is it:
BlackBerry AppWorld is having trouble connecting to the BlackBerry AppWorld server. Verify your network connections and try again.
if so, please read the following article from the public knowledge base.

I was experiencing the following error:
"BlackBerry AppWorld is having trouble connecting to the BlackBerry AppWorld server. Verify your network connections and try again."
I experienced this for days and weeks on end. Possibly over a month where I was unable to download new apps or upgrade existing apps. I was waiting for RIM to address this issue in an upgrade to Blackberry App World. This is extremely frustrating and it is quite absurd that RIM would not immediately address this. It is this type of event that pushes us away from RIM and towards the other alternatives on the market.
With that said, this is what I did to solve the problem:
1. Logged into http://www.blackberry.com/blackberryid using my existing ID and password.
2. Changed my e-mail address to an e-mail address that was NOT associated with my PayPal account.
3. Changed my user ID to match the user name of my e-mail address (i.e., firstname.lastname@example.org).
4. Changed my password for good measure.
5. I was then able to login to Blackberry App World through my phone.
I believe the issue in my case is that my PayPal account is a commercial account associated with multiple e-mail addresses. I was previously using a BBAW e-mail address that was associated with my commercial PayPal account. I believe by changing my BBAW e-mail address to an e-mail address NOT associated with my commercial PayPal account it corrected the problem.
If your e-mail address is associated with both BBAW and PayPal, try creating another e-mail address for BBAW that is NOT associated with your PayPal account and see if that works. It is worth a try.
RIM, please correct this stuff before we move over to your competition! A phone without the ability to download new applications or upgrade existing applications is nearly useless!
