Re: This is my BlackBerry App Worldâ„¢ - Order Confirmation ...

Hi there!


Here are a few suggestions:

Anytime random strange behaviors creep in, the first thing to do is a battery pop reboot. 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.


If the error does not go away, do try removing and re-installing it:



If that still fails, please come to the forums and register an account so that we can provide you with more direct assistance:
