Re: Blackberry App World (Error 80003)

If you're getting the 80003 error, there are three user-suggested fixes:

1. Follow these directions:
First delete AppWorld on your OS 5 Blackberry, (Options > Advanced > Applications) or on OS 6/7 devices (Options > Device > Applications)
Then copy the whole address below and paste it in your BlackBerry browser, or click on it from this forum page FROM your BlackBerry.
For OS7 devices: http://www.bbh-plus.net/downloads.php?do=file&id=2196
For OS6 devices: http://www.bbh-plus.net/downloads.php?do=file&id=2197
For OS5 devices: http://www.bbh-plus.net/downloads.php?do=file&id=2198

2. Make sure you are connecting to AppWorld while on a WiFi connection. Turn off your mobile network and connect by WiFi, then try again. This has worked for some.

3. On Os5 BlackBerrys, go to Options, Advanced Options, TCP/IP. Select APN which is the first box. Under it
next to APN type Internet. Save it and it will work.
On OS6 & 7 BlackBerrys, go to Options > Device, at the bottom Advanced System Settings. Go to TCP IP. Select the first box and next to APN type "Internet". Your BlackBerry ID will download. It will ask to restart your device, do so and if you then go it to your App World > MyWorld, it will prompt you to a blue screen where you need to log in.

good luck.

Re: Blackberry App World (Error 80003)

I had the same problem.
All I did was go to Options>Advanced Options>TCP/IP then I enabled the APN and entered blackberry.net as the APN. After a few tries, the I'd update downloaded.
