>BlackBerry says uninstall and reinstall App World. This does not work. I found that going to this site >http://rroyy.com/otaarchive/ and selecting the previous version of app world solved it. Just uninstall the version 56 of >App World and then install the version 29 of App World. Don't forget to choose the correct OS for your device.
http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB154023. With the BlackBerry device powered ON, remove the battery a few seconds and then reinsert the battery to reboot. This reboot, even if you have already done this, is often needed to install the service books.
If this doesn’t work continue to these steps:
1. Go to Blackberry App Centre, change the top left dropdown to BOLT_ON and scroll to BB Messenger, press menu button and click delete, once this is done it will prompt to reboot but you need to select NO and then with the phone on remove the battery for a few seconds. Once the phone has rebooted go to www.blackberry.com/blackberrymessenger and re-install bbm.****If in doubt, do this twice*****
This worked for me and i didn’t lose any of my BBM contacts but you might want to install Blackberry protect from appworld and run a backup first as this is what i did just to be safe
Exactly the same as the phone I have and fault I had until someone on this post provided this link http://rroyy.com/otaarchive/ where you can download the previous version of ap world. That should fix it for you. As for RIM, its all a bit quiet so either they're ignorant or don't know some people have this issue as I think its affecting the minority of users.
