rroyy is not an option. The site has been closed down.
I down loaded the 7.1 Bundle 1996 on Dec 5, 2012 and my podcasts were disab led. I can't us my BB to keep up with tech news anymore. From these posts that go back to April it's obvious that BB isn't interested in fixing the issue after 8 months.
Time for another phone. They certainly don't care for their customers.

I just now updated my OS and had the same problem. The http://rroyy.com site is up and the download works currently. It even restored and synchronized all of my previous podcast. Great find who ever posted that. I will have to donate to that site for saving me the time and headache.
Thanks for posting.

Yay! I have been struggling with this same problem for the past month. My service provider told me to contact BB. BB support didn't seem aware of a common problem (which there clearly is), and has been suggesting fixes that haven't yet worked.
I too am planning to make a donation to the website that offered this software.
Looks like the forum editors delete links to private sites, so the links in earlier messages might get deleted for future users with this problem. Here's the URL with additional spaces and broken into lots of lines -- in hopes that it evades the censors:
Follow the links:
Applications --> BlackBerry Podcasts [note: look for the version that matches your operating system] --> Download
It worked for me when I followed these steps on my BB''s browser (not on my computer).
Thank you to all contributors who made this fix possible!

Thanks, dogmatooth. I haven't tried your solution only because (for now) the rroy.com download, above, has worked so well. But getting the app directly from BlackBerry seems much more direct, so I hope others can benefit from your advice.
A larger problem seems to be the lack of support/ knowlege on this from BB. I'm thinking about upgrading to the Z10 or Q10, but is this the kind of help I'll receive? Worse still, what will happen when system-10 phones are no longer their top-of-the-line product? I fear that system-10 users will then get the "system-7 treatment".
