I recently received a notification for Blackberry AppWorld up date 188.8.131.52. I downloaded the new application and it seems to be a European version. All the pay amounts are in Euros and the Apps are somewhat different than what is shown on the Blackberry Apps web site. I tried to delete and download again from Blackberry on my phone. I am using a Blackberry Storm. I am under the impression that this is some kind of error. Anyone else experiencing this?
We are informed that RIM is aware of this issue and is working on it. In the meantime, There are a few workarounds you can try.
1) Log into MyWorld with your PayPal credentials...some have reported this to clear things up. Additionally, if you actually make a purchase attempt, it has been reported that the currency then shifts to match your PayPal currency.
2) Remove and re-install AppWorld.
3) If you are on VZW, then a work around is to remove your SIM from your BB. On VZW, the SIM is not needed for anything; I've been running without mine for months just fine.
4) If you are not on VZW yet are on another CDMA carrier, you can try removing the SIM as well...but I am not positive that works OK with all other CDMA carriers. If you are not on a CDMA carrier, then we presently have no workaround for you.
5) If these remedies don't work and/or you are on any carrier other than VZW, please post and identify your carrier so that RIM can more fully research the issue.
