I tried to download google talk on appworld. The download has been stuck/frozen on "starting download" for the last week. I have tried a battery pull, uninstalling and reinstalling app world, and logging into paypal as has been suggested elsewhere. None of these attempts solved the problem. What else can I do?
I am using the most recent version of app world.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Lets see on Friday the same thing happened to me; I was downloading a "Drivers Ed Lite" application, I saw the progress bar reach the end, then I saw "ready to install" I clicked it and it was installing I guess; after a literal 5 minutes, and throughout the whole time, my busy icon (clock) bar kept going; so I did a battery pull.
When it came back online I went into App World and it said "starting download" but then froze there forever.
I did everything, I enabled compatbility, I edited permissions to "allow" connections, I un installed and re installed App World. I couldnt do anything to fix it.
I called Verizon who then sent me to Blackberry but I then waited 1 day to call.
I tried downloading another software (thankfully both were free), it downloaded and it said "ready to install" I waited a literal 10minutes + and nothing happened; nothing showed up on my cell phone, nothing showed up under "Options>Advanced Options>Applications"
Blackberry Tech Support said "this is a known issue, there is no ETA when it will be resolved"
So I guess the only thing I can do is wait for someone to post there has been a fix or await a new version of Blackberry App World
Til then I am just gonna download applications manually, find it on the internet then send it to my phone instead of using App World.
OH BTW theres another Application similiar to Blackberry App World, its called "Handango InHand", give that a try

How do you follow these instructions on a Tour? I might be blind, but I don't see a button labeled "RST".
I had Google Talk bound to the right side convenience button. One day I pressed the button and nothing happened. The options showed that button wasn't bound to anything. I looked and Google Talk was just missing. I went to re-download it, thinking I accidentally deleted it. The download process was extremely long. Then, it said it was ready to install, but never progressed. I went to application list in the options menu and deleted Google Talk (It was showing up there, but nowhere else). I then tried to redownload it and it's been sitting on "download starting" for hours. I live in Seattle, so this isn't a connection problem.
