BB Id problem

If I update or download an app from the AppWorld the screen freezes with the text : Authenticating ... (and nothing appears).

Re: BB Id problem

Hi when I try to download an application on my PlayBook which is around 400 MB, it will get to about 397MB and then the download will just freeze (my PlayBook dosn't just the download). Oh and also it seems to take along time to.

Any suggestions on why this might be? Cheers

Re: BB Id problem

I would suggest doing a restart on the PlayBook first.. (touch the battery icon > Restart) and then after reboot, connect to WiFi and try again.

Re: BB Id problem

I experienced the same problems installing a large app a few months ago. I ended up deleting some apps (temporarily) to free up some space on my PlayBook. After I installed the large app, I reinstalled the ones I deleted. Everything worked fine afterwards. PlayBook probably needed the extra space to work during the installation.
