Re: app world refresh connection problem

Hello deadgin,

 

Does your BlackBerry have a Wi-Fi connection enabled? If so, try disconnecting from the Wi-Fi and then refresh.

 

Also, what version of AppWorld are you using? Go to Options -> Advanced Options -> Applications

or Options -> Applications and look for the version number.

Re: app world refresh connection problem

Having the same problem. I'm running the v2-36 and all the permissions are set to Allow.

 

I am on Pearl 8130 and running OS 4.5.0.127

 

- I can't download any applications. I get a 'This application is not available in App World' error.

- I can't set up PayPal information. It tells me my password is incorrect when I know it is correct.

- I can't upgrade existing apps, apps that are free.

 

If there is no solution to these problems, can I get a certain date by which you hope to resolve the issue?

Hey JameB,

 

Were you able to log in with your BlackBerry ID? To ensure your ID works, try going to www.blackberry.com/blackberryid from a computer and test logging in.

 

Are you getting any error when trying to update free applications?

[ Edited ]

Somehow the problem is now fixed. All I did is uninstall App World after getting frustrated yesterday night and restarted the phone.

 

I just installed the app world again and everything works fine! I can log into the App World, download apps and I just set up my PayPal!

 

************

However, I know a lot of people are still having problems so:

I was able to log in with my blackberry id on my computer yesterday night. But I couldn't log in from my phone. I also wasn't able to set up PayPal.

 

When I tried to download apps, I kept getting error message after like 3-4 minutes saying the "Blackberry App World could not connect to Blackberry <something>. Please check your network connections and try again."  I had my MSN running and I was searching Google for possible solution while I received this message. So obviously it wasn't that my phone's data services were disabled.

 

EDIT: I just restarted the phone and again I got the same "can't connect to App World Server" error. Then after restarting one more time, it was fine again. I hope you guys release a stable version of App World soon..
