BlackBerry World storefront having some issues?

As of April 19th, there was a server side fix applied to help with this issue. If you're still experiencing it, please review the BlackBerry Knowledge Base article found here -

By Bla1ze on 18 Apr 2013 02:05 am EDT

Looks that way. We've been seeing a lot of reports from folks on Twitter and in the CrackBerry Forums where BlackBerry World is no longer working as expected. In other words, it's just basically not loading any content at all for some folks. Interestingly enough, all of the devices we have tested it on are working perfectly fine and many other users are reporting no issues as well. As right now, we're not sure what the situation is but we've reached out to BlackBerry to see what we can find out. In the meantime, you can keep your eyes on the situation by visiting the CrackBerry Forums and we'll update this post when things get resolved or we find out more about what's going on.



Takes a while to load up??

Not working here either but you can access it by going through Music >settings > Blackberry World and it should open for you this way... Let me know if it also works for you...


I have found this to work on my phone also. Thanks!

Posted via CB10


I just tried what E_the_cameraman posted and was the only way that BlackBerry World worked. I went to The music application, then chose settings (3 vertical dots on the lower right corner) and selected the BlackBerry World on the menu and it worked.
When I first tried running the BlackBerry World directly through its own icon, it just hangs there waiting as if I didn't have an Internet connection. Hope it's solved soon.

Posted via CB10


I tried the same thing, and it worked.


Worked like a charm!! Thanks

Not working since a long time, every day there is something new to share on the OS or function of the phone. This is what happens if you divert your company's core competency towards replication others success.

This phone and it's eco system sucks big time, truly regret for shifting from Bold 9900, as the name says bold was truly bold.

Posted via CB10


Hey guys, about BBW spinning wheel thing, I found the solution. If you go to music, then settings, and open Blackberry World, you can access the BBW once again, without problem. It's a only temporary solution, and I am sure they fix it soon. But until then, you still get to access BBW.


Thanks, this temporary solution works--Z10 on ATT.


This works. Although I got the Spanish BB World for some reason...

I think there'll be an update to Blackberry World, which will include Music and Video contents. Also, an interesting finding after tonight's update, my Playbook apps now are available on my Z10!


I actually received a notification for an App World update and since attempting to do so, it hasn't been working since. I thought I messed up the installation somehow but I guess more people are being affected.

Posted via CB10


Just had a look:
BlackBerry world does not load opening the app, but the suggestion here in the comments bout going via music works.

That is on O2 UK.

I will speculate a bit, but u think there is some communication between the phone and BlackBerry world when you open the app - communication other than downloading content and that broke.

J would also think they have multiple servers for multiple regions which explains why the problem did not appear at the same time for everybody.

As posted by another member, BlackBerry world is accessible via the music player.

The main page format is different so it looks like in the process of updating it they've screwed up something.

I have the same problems with my BlackBerry Z10, and I also have the PlayBook using the same BlackBerry ID because as the BlackBerry supports mentioned can share ID, this problem pop up since this morning, in BlackBerry World. I'm a user from Malaysia, telco is Maxis.

I suspect those users have the same ID share with PlayBook have this issue. I have tested my friend BlackBerry world without BlackBerry id apply in PlayBook, just sign in BlackBerry Z10. The BlackBerry world working fine.

Hope the problem solve ASAP.

Tested my friend BlackBerry Z10 with the same mobile network services provider Maxis, but his account is new, BlackBerry ID only sign in in BlackBerry Z10. No problem for updates application and etc.

Guess the BlackBerry world is confused with the share ID for BlackBerry devices.

I haven't been able to pay for Blaq at all in BBworld. I've been trying since 6pm CST. It keeps saying it has no card info on my PayPal account which is ridiculous since I I've been using the same account with BBID all this time. I was just going to try the website side on my computer to see if I can bypass this glitch.

Hello World.

Still not working here in Germany (Vodafone) and WiFi only. Workaround with open Music and jump from there to BBW works great. Even downloading and installing Apps without any kind of error or speed problems.

Not sure in what Time Zone the BlackBerry HQ (Yes I know it's Canada) is or where the BBW Server are located [are they located in different Country's??]. So I suggest: NJOY the wonderful Day and wait till the IT-Guys and Devs are waking up.
