New problem-unable to download in appworld

Can anyone help please?
Had no previous problems in appworld,but since buying a game (that I couldn't download,so waste of money!) I'm unable to download or upgrade any apps.
I've uninstalled appworld,then reinstalled it,didn't change anything.
The message reads "There was a problem during installation. Please try later".
This has been going on for weeks now & I'm getting really annoyed! Had little help from BB on twitter,so hopefully I'll have more joy here.
Hate this phone! 3rd BB,but would never have another as nothing but problems with it!!
Help please before I flush it down the loo!!

Re: New problem-unable to download in appworld

Hello!

 

I suggest that you clear the AppWorld application cache:


1. Open App World

2. Go to My World

3. Follow one (and only one!) of these steps:


3a. For keyboard-based BB's -- Hold down the ALT key and then press, in sequence R, then S, then T

3b. For Touch Screen Only BBs -- Hold the num-lock (!?123) button so it locks and then press, in sequence 3, then 4, then (

3c. For newer (e,g., OS6 and 7) BB's, see this KB:

  • KB24714 How to clear the BlackBerry App World cache



4. AppWorld should close.

5. If your BB locks after issuing the cache clear, perform a battery pull reboot

6. Return to AppWorld/MyWorld (it may be sluggish while it re-synchronizes).

If step (4) does not happen as listed, then the clear cache did not work.

Hopefully it'll work for you! Good luck and let us know!

Thanks for that!

Just did it,then tried to upgrade an app,still saying the same message & not upgrading. Only does about 1MB,then displays that message.

Any other ideas?

Re: New problem-unable to download in appworld

Hmmm...interesting...try this KB:

  • KB26671 "Install Error: There was a problem during installation. Please try again." is encountered when attempting to download an application from BlackBerry App World on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet

I realize that it's for the PlayBook, but you never know if it might work in your situation!

 

Good luck!

Re: New problem-unable to download in appworld

Thanks for that. Give it a try later from a PC.

It is very strange how that's happened,probably couldn't even have done if I'd tried!!

Let you know how I get on.
Cheers
