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 - http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB34132

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.

BlackBerry World storefront having some issues?

662 Comments

HI All

am out here in Angola(Africa) and i got my BB Z10 and since i got it the Blackberry Work app, does not work at all. message" There was a connection problem. Blackberry work must close:

Cheers

Hi freind, i just came to Angola from Cameroun, BB world went down with same message" There was a connection problem. Blackberry work must close" but it worked well when i was in Cameroun, did you resolve this problem, thanks for your feedback...

The Web store still opens and you can install apps there, app updates also still come through, just can't open the main page on phone

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 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.

Going in through Music totally worked after I was unable to get past the spinning disc from the main menu! Thanks!

Sent from my iPuh-lease-as-IF

Well done e_thecameraman was able to access BW this way and after able to access through standard icon on phone Thank you for posting solution

Hello,even my Z10 can't open BBW....it's loading and loading...
I'm from Germany
Z10 STL 100-2
10.0.10.90
Never had problems before

I was on BlackBerry World about a half hour ago and it was working fine. But, I just tried to visit BlackBerry World just now and it won't load for me.

Posted via CB10

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.

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.

Actually someone already had found this solution on the first page...soo really the genius is e something cameraman.

Posted via CB10

Thanks. It was not working for me before but that works. Hopefully a fix comes soon.

Posted via CB10

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 & loving it!

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.

Posted via CB10

Not working for me here in the UK.
Must be everyone downloading Blaq has made it crash?

Posted via CB10

Not only the BlackBerry world all the Facebook news feed are not working. Hope they repair it soon.

Posted via CB10

Mine don't work either. (german device) but the music workaround let's me open it, again.

Posted via CB10

I've haven't had major problems with it. Mostly minor glitches. The language of the menu randomly changes sometimes and I often get the blackberry asterisk randomly even if I've checked checked for updates.

Posted via CB10

You've jinxed mine, it was working fine until I read this, now it's just doing what twitter was doing the blue ring.

Posted via CB10

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.

Just went on to check if mine was working when I saw this post and I'm not having any issues in Kingston, Ont., Canada on Rogers
Thanks for the heads up tho

Posted via CB10

no issue at all
another lie from wall street analyst to beat down the stock price for shorts

Posted via CB10

It's bust in the UK on O2. Just keeps spinning round and round and round and round and round and.........you get the idea.

Posted via CB10 using my awesome BB Z10

I have issues with BlackBerry world, I can't open it,

This has to stop because I have no more patience with BlackBerry, I haven't dumped them when they had old devices hopping that this bb10 will be different,

BlackBerry Z10

Works fine on my bold and torch but for months has been freezing on 1st opening on playbook, so having to close and reopen every time is a hassle. In a way I'm glad to hear others are having problems so maybe a fix will be forth coming.

Seen this a couple hours ago, it was working for me on Telus in Manitoba, however just now after a hard reset my BlackBerry World is NOT working now. :(

Posted via CB10

Mine won't load either. It just started doing it today. Odd. Not a bad thing right this second but I know others would really like it back up. Hope it's up soon. Btw, crackberry and its readers are awesome!!! One of my favorite places to go on my Z10!!!

Posted via CB10

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.

Stephen from Malaysia.

Posted via CB10

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.

Posted via CB10

Here in TX on AT&T not working either. Wouldn't have known until I read this and tried it. Was working fine yesterday, I believe.

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.

Posted via CB10

User LJT gave a great tip in the BBW issue thread: go to the music app, open the context menu and select BBW. It opens from there.

My BBW has been down as well, Vodafone NL, stl100-2, 10.0.10.99

Will check my PlayBook later...

Posted via CB10 - Z10 Vodafone NL

Not working, looks like it is updating. Just started this morning. Before today, it was fine. USA T-Mobile.

Posted via CB10

BlackBerry World has been working since I got my Z10 on Feb 5. Saw this form this morning and checked it and Can confirm it is not working now

Posted via CB10

It happened to me for like a couple of minutes and then it fixed itself so I didn't really have a problem with that

Posted via CB10

no probs here whatsoever, browsing and downloading apps still working well, Im in Indonesia using Indosat

Just checked and everything was fine on northern tel (bell) the only thing that has changed lately is trending apps are at the bottom now.

Posted via CB10

mine hangs in the black screen with circle running and nothing happens here in Sask with Sasktel. It worked just fine on tuesday.

I am with o2 UK. Not working as well... perhaps BlackBerry World is going through some sort of maintenance?? Whatever it is... fix it as soon as possible.

Posted via CB10

Mine is not working... as well as my brother's... we only have that little circle that keeps on spinning,we thought it was just loading, but nothing came out.... waited for few minutes, restarted our phones, yet same thing happened....

Posted via CB10

Not working on AT&T, but can access via the the Music app

Posted by gliveron via CB10 on AT&T

I have the same issue, but the work around for me was to send the app to my phone using the browser. That is how I got the updated twitter app.

Posted via CB10

I came on here this morning to see if anyone had reported the same thing. Thanks! Mine's not loading at all since this morning. Z10, rogers. But I am on wifi too so I don't suppose that makes a difference.

Hi,

Does this My World issue has a permanent fix? I have been facing this since morning. Not working at all. I had issues with charging also. Got it fixed by restarting my BB.

Any help is very much appreciated.

The news should have said: "Users of BlackBerryWorld were Greeted with the application not loading since late last night". At least will go at par with Google news yesterday about their disruption of services.

Posted via CB10

Yep, not working. Won't load. Started last night. At least my wife is happy. She keeps asking me what all the 99 cent charges are for.

Posted via CB10

Mine is just fine, but sometimes on "my world"tag has red star, but after go inside and check for update, nothing come out, I assume is some APP not avaliable in my area, like twitter and facebook. BTW, i am in China of course.
Other than this, so far so good.

Posted via CB10

We can only hope that it is due to all the new BlackBerry users clogging the system to get their apps and music uploads.

Posted via CB10

The loading ring of death is at it again, not working since last night here in Waterloo.

Posted via CB10

BlackBerry world has been working for me however since I've had this phone I have had many issues with the native FB app and so has a lot of other ppl I know that has the Z10. Has anyone experienced any issues particularly with the chat and updates?

Posted via CB10

Not working on Rogers but the workaround work, go to the music app and the link to the Bb works, from there I could see my apps and update some apps

Posted via CB10

Mine is not working either, on Rogers in Toronto.
I also been having a problem with Facebook since yesterday.
When I open Facebook I get a message saying
"There was a problem connecting to Facebook. Please check your connection and try again. Tap to retry"
When I tap I get the same message, I have the facebook options on the top of the screen that will allow me to open messages, friends list and everything else except my News Feed
Anyone else have this problem?
