Following the announcement of the latest BlackBerry World update, several BlackBerry 10 users have been unable to successfully get the update downloaded due to running into "No network connection" errors. Luckily, there are several ways to get around the error and get your BlackBerry World working correctly, including an official guide from BlackBerry and a more straightforward guide from the CrackBerry Community and a video guide from TechOdyssey.
How to fix BlackBerry World 'No Network Connection' errors
In order to fix the error, you will need:
- A computer
- A BlackBerry 10 smartphone running
- A USB cable to connect your phone to your computer
- BlackBerry 10 drivers for Windows or Mac
- DBBT for Windows or Sachesi for Mac
- Updated BlackBerry World .BAR file
Once you have all the appropriate software downloaded for your computer, plug your BlackBerry 10 smartphone into your computer and then open DBBT or Sachesi.
For DBBT: Verify that DBBT has recognized and is connected to your device in the bottom left-hand corner. If you have a password on your device, you will be asked to enter it in order to proceed. Once you're connected, simply drag and drop the previously downloaded BlackBerry World .BAR file into the open DBBT window.
For Sachesi: Verify that Sachesi has recognized and is connected to your device by clicking on the device tab. Your device info should be displayed under the Device tab if connected. Once connected, go to the 'Install' tab and simply drag and drop the previously downloaded BlackBerry World .BAR file into the window.
In both cases, you will get an indicator of the installation process and be able to view when it has completed. Once completed, go ahead and reboot your BlackBerry 10 smartphone, and BlackBerry World should once again be working for you.
