I noticed this problem after I was prompted to upgrade 2 apps namely "Solverlabs Chess" & "YouVersion Bible". It was returning the error "Blackberry App world is having trouble connecting...."
Here is how I managed to fix the problem:
1. Open App World, then open My World (where it shows the list of apps installed)
2. Click/Press the on your phone to reveal the menu items
3. Select Log out and confirm you want to log out
4. Press the again while in App World, select Close
5. Open App World again, go to My World and open it.
6. It will ask you to login to your blackberry ID, put in your email/username and password then login.
7. Try downloading an app or doing an upgrade see if it works.
This should resolve the problem, it did fix it for me and I was able to upgrade my apps, no more annoying error. I am not sure why it does this, maybe we need to login/out once in a while or else App World server will force us to this way.
As for using unlocked phones, I am not sure but mine is from vendor ID 114 but using it on vodacomSA vendor ID 168 so it must be something other than vendor IDs.

I tried the loggin out and loggin in again. I had tried turning off the phone and turning back on before that.
I don't know why App World isn't working now.
Everything was working fine until this evening while I was downloading some apps (using the QR code on the screen). I had just downloaded and allowed some permissions for BESTFlash (http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/25
I don't know why it is suddenly doing this, but it is.
I can stil connect to the internet without problems. I do have the BlackBerry connected to our WiFi, but the Internet provider shouldn't matter, right? I mean, I'm on Sprint and if not near a WiFi network, it would be the Sprint network . . .

I'm having the same problem today in Japan, using DoCoMo network.
I've uninstalled it and then downloaded the new one for my BB Bold 9700 but still the same.
Viewed many angry users.

Maybe it was App World. I left to watch some TV and came back. It was working then. I had something that wasn't downloading, but I think it was the developers fault, so then I did a hard reboot by removing the battery. Put it back in and everything seemed to be working fine after doing that.

Just bought a Torch. I am getting an error when trying to download apps. Brand new phone! Says Blackberry App world is having trouble connecting to the BB App world server. Verify network connections and try again. Have tried logging in and out, tried battery pull. ALL other WIFI works, browsing internet works fine. I can browse the app store all I want. How can I have done anything wrong, it didnt work outta the box!
Why did I buy this phone if I cant get apps?

I'm pretty fed up. I have no clue how long I've had the error but I have a feeling it's months because I normally don't back it up or update apps because I hate having to log back into everything.
I've tried a lot of fixes & so far nothing is working. I've also deleted Blackberry App World- no go.
Who has a fix?
BTW; how do I find out my PIN number?

Well; I fixed it.
sorry for being obnoxious on the large font...
I couldn't even load my world after logging out; so
I decided to make a new Blackberry ID with another email address.. it logged in successfully & started updating my ebay; it now works fine
I'll have to try logging in under the 1st account once my ebay is installed to see if my original user profile is corrupt.

Ok, downloaded a bunch of updates under the new profile; all was well; I then logged out & tried my main profile & again I have the issue so my original profile is corrupt.
How do I get my old profile fixed?
