Connect my device -- but it seems connected

I KNOW I'm doing something daft, but I've twisted myself round in circles now and can't find my way out.

 

My BB World on my pc can see all of the apps that I have on my phone and can see my purchase history but tells me to connect my device. Do I need to physically connect it? Surely not!

 

Why would it not be seeing my device -- do give me a hand please!

Re: Connect my device -- but it seems connected

Hello lucycripps

 

Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forum

 

May I know what you're trying to achieve ?

 

From a PC if we login with our BlackBerry ID and password and go to My World  it will show all of our apps , purchase history even without connecting our BlackBerry .

Re: Connect my device -- but it seems connected

Ahhh -- so physically connect it. I see. What I want to do is buy Runtastic Pro online (rather than using BB) because I've been having trouble making payments directly from BB. I suppose I could just update my payment options online instead...

Thanks for your help!

Re: Connect my device -- but it seems connected

Thanks for this info !

 

I'm not sure what error you're getting on payment options , but if you share those error code or any specific error message you're getting while purchasing then we can try to help you , you can also change your payment options if you need .

 

I think you should read those Knowledge Base , which may help :

 

KB28715 : How to Install applications from BlackBerry App World using a Computer system

KB26621How to change the payment method in BlackBerry App World for either the BlackBerry PlayBook or BlackBerry smartphone

 

Good luck.

Re: Connect my device -- but it seems connected

Arrgh! So I plugged the device in, and it's seeing it (yay!), then went to buy the Runtastic Pro app, went all the way through to completing purchase when it came back with an internal server error (EC).

 

Any suggestions?

Hi there,

 

Use you device and see if you recieve the same error , On your BlackBerry open BlackBerry world and try to purchase that app .
