I am trying to purchase a game from Blackberry App World...

I am trying to purchase a game from Blackberry App World, but every time I enter my PayPal passoword and hit log in, I get an error. The error id is 3300. No one seems to know what this is. I've wiped the handheld, and this hasn't helped. Please help! Heather Stansbury

Re: I am trying to purchase a game from Blackberry App World...

HI there!

There have been some issues with the AppWorld services lately...most are reported to be cleared up. Please try again. Also, please try removing and re-installing AppWorld...some have reported that to be helpful.

Also check your PayPal account -- log into it from a PC/browser and ensure that the credentials you use there are identical to those you use to log into MyWorld. Also ensure that the credit card you have attached to PayPal is current and valid.


Also please try a hard reset: With power ON, remove the back cover and pull out the battery. Wait about a minute then replace the battery and cover. Power up and wait patiently through the long reboot -- ~5 minutes. See if things have returned to good operation. Like all computing devices, BB's suffer from memory leaks and such...with a hard reboot being the best cure.

In addition, you can try this sequence:

1) Remove AppWorld from your BB (Homescreen > Options > Advanced Options > Applications) -- if it requests that you reboot the BB, do so.

2) Do a Batt-Pull reboot as described above.

3) Get a new link and install a fresh copy of AppWorld


  • Again, if it requests to reboot, do so.

4) Do another Batt-Pull reboot

5) See if it now works.

If none of that works, then please return to these forums
