so it should be an easy fix for you highly paid gurus or is the software just flakey.

Hello Royd,


you are on a community forum. The contributors here are BlackBerry users, who volunteer to spend part of their leisure time to help other blackBerry users.


We are not RIM employees, we are not paid by RIM either (apart from the moderators whose job is indeed to moderate the forums).

The search box on top-right of this page is your true friend, and the public Knowledge Base too:

Re: App World does not start

I'm having the same problem. I checked and looked at the swithc application and the app world is running. How do I make it so I can use app world again?
