Error 80003 blackberry identity update needed

Hi since I upgraded to the new blackberry application world, I can not get in, it keeps telling me I need an identity , n than it sends me an error message saying 'identity installation failed. Please try again later(80003) ', I have been trying for a few months now, ,what can I do? The previous application world was working perfectly fine,

Re: Error 80003 blackberry identity update needed

If you're getting the 80003 error, there are three user-suggested fixes:

1. Follow these directions:
First delete AppWorld on your OS 5 Blackberry, (Options > Advanced > Applications) or on OS 6/7 devices (Options > Device > Applications)
Then copy the whole address below and paste it in your BlackBerry browser, or click on it from this forum page FROM your BlackBerry.
http://santo.asia/repository/bb-file/BlackBerryAppWorld.3.0.1.29.OS5/AppWorld.jad
or:
For OS7 devices: http://www.bbh-plus.net/downloads.php?do=file&id=2196
For OS6 devices: http://www.bbh-plus.net/downloads.php?do=file&id=2197
For OS5 devices: http://www.bbh-plus.net/downloads.php?do=file&id=2198

2. Make sure you are connecting to AppWorld while on a WiFi connection. This has worked for some.

3. On Os5 BlackBerrys, go to Options, Advanced Options, TCP/IP. Select APN which is the first box. Under it
next to APN type Internet. Save it and it will work.
On OS6 & 7 BlackBerrys, go to Options > Device, at the bottom Advanced System Settings. Go to TCP IP. Select the first box and next to APN type "Internet". Your BlackBerry ID will download. It will ask to restart your device, do so and if you then go it to your App World > MyWorld, it will prompt you to a blue screen where you need to log in.

good luck.

davina, What is your Operating System loaded to your device? Look at Options > Device > About, third line down beginning with a "v.6.0.x.xxx", What is yours?

 

Also, what is your exact model number found at Options > About (not just the name, the number, like 9300, 9360, 9350, etc.)
