Data service not operational

I downloaded the free update for Shazzam, and now get the above message when trying to open App World.  i deleted Shazzam and still get the same message.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Re: Data service not operational

What is your data signal showing on the deivce? 3G, EDGE, 1xEV, etc?

 

Can you try to reset the device and try it again? With the device powered on, remove the battery for 30 seconds and replace it. After the device reboots try to open App World again

Re: Data service not operational

The phone had rebooted after deleting Shazzam, but I guess that doesn't work as well as pulling the battery.  It now works.  Thanks for the assist.

@jeroen23

contact your carrier hotline and ask them to fix things so you can access AppWorld.

Re: Data service not operational

yes among the technical requirements to be able to use AppWorld, there is the BlackBerry Data Plan.

If you do not wish to subscribe to a BlackBerry Data Plan, I suggest you to download your application at another shop. You can go to Handango, Handmark, MobiHand for example. Most free apps are available over there, and premium apps are the same price as on AppWorld.

Re: Data service not operational

you need to call O2 support and tell them to activate your data plan.
