Both my husband and I are with Rogers. He has the Torch and I the 9780. He had no problems with it backing up, but I keep receiving the message "The BlackBerry Protect service is temporarily unavailable". This has gone on for days. I have tried everything suggested in the above posts and still nothing.
Has anyone found a solution yet?

Well, I'll add myself to those affected.
I have a 9780 with Rogers and I've had this issue since I've upgraded to a 1GB plan as it worked fine when I had a 500MB plan. I'm beginning to think it's an issue with those that have 1GB though I can't confirm until I downgrade my plan on my next billing cycle.
Rogers tried removing and reinitializing my data plan but that didn't help. They applied a data block and removed it, that didn't help.
I've wiped my phone three times and installed three different official OS (.448, .534, .546) and same issue every time.
Finally Rogers told me it was nothing to do with them and to contact RIM using the 'Contact Support' option in the Blackberry Protect app in AppWorld.
Then I guess a nice automated response from RIM that states:
Thank you for contacting BlackBerry(r) App World(tm) support. This is an automated response to your inquiry. Direct support is unavailable through the "Contact Support" button.
Please visit www.blackberry.com/appworld/support for billing issues and technical support options including BlackBerry(r) Answers, user guides, knowledge base articles, and BlackBerry(r) Support Community Forums. Direct support can also be accessed through the contact form found on this site.
Support Link: www.blackberry.com/appworld/support
So basically contacting RIM through AppWorld is useless. (Why do they even bother having support link at all if it doesnt do anything!!!).
I'm having a really rough time with my BB lately and this isn't helping (everything just seems to be slow or not work). I don't care so much about Protect since I sync with Outlook but it's just one more thing on my phone that isn't working as well as it should and I'm tired of that. As such, I'm close to putting my phone through the wall and giving up on BB except I want to hang in there for the 9900.

i have been having problems to, but i get the message; an error has occured, please try later, when logging-in to download the app.
i deleted app world (uninstalled) and re-installed app world which went perfect but cannot get recognised when i login to download any app desired.
why would this happen when re-installing app world went ok.

Just wanted to say that my Protect is working again.
The solution was that Rogers temporarily increased my data plan to unlimited for the next two months. While Protect still gave me the error after they increased my plan last night, this morning it was working fine.
When I called Rogers to tell them it worked, the Support guy I talked to said plan changes didn't go through until midnight so previous attempts by Rogers to 'play with' my data plan might have worked but we just didn't give it enough time.
Downside is that I only have unlimited for 2 months so I don't know if it will stop working after that.
So... there does seem to be some conflict with the Rogers 1GB plan and Protect, at least for me on my 9780.

Well, a few days ago, I got a text message from Rogers saying that my unlimited data bonus was about to end. I had no idea what that was...I guess when I signed up for the 1GB plan, they gave me this "unlimited data bonus" for a couple of months. Anyways, I had long since uninstalled Blackberry Protect but decided to try it again after this bonus ended. Protect is now working! My first backup was completed and I assume it's going to keep backing up. I don't know if this is all a coincidence or Blackberry resolved the problem with Rogers. Regardless, my Blackberry 9780 is now loaded with Protect after I having lots of problems with it a couple of months ago. I hope it clears up for everyone else, too :-)
