Re: BB App World icon problem

I am not sure I get what you are trying to say? Do you have app world installed on your BB? If so the icon you are talking of what does it look like? Is it a notification for a new app or an upgrade? Have you used appworld before? The data service error message means you either are in an area where there is not data support 3G/GPRS/EDGE which is mobile internet connection or you do not have a BIS plan which you need to pay your carrier or check with them if its included as part of the contract. Hope this helps, your question was rather vague, if you can explain further we can assist.
