I had an issue all day long. I am on BES. I tried device wipe, which didn't work. I found the solution on another Crackberry.com thread.
Delete Desktop service book (not sure exactly which one, I forget) do a search. Options/Advanced/Service book.
It now works fine while I am still on the BES. By deleting this service book, it didn't affect anything on my phone. Still get email, sms, mms, etc....
Im having the same problem on my bold (At&t), "blackberry app world is having trouble connecting to the blackberry app world server" wtf? and the "fix" posted above didn't work for me :-( any other solutions?
I deleted the Desktop IPPP Service Book and Blackberry App World did indeed start working. However, I am on a BES and my corporate Intranet was also removed by deleting that Service Book. So my guess is that the Blackberry App World was trying to use the wrong connection to the internet. It most likely got blocked by the corporate firewall.
I hope Blackberry fixes this bug so it uses the connections for the Default Internet Browser.
Have you guys tried Downloading the newer version of APP World?? the one that first came out was 22.214.171.124 the new one, if i am correct is 126.96.36.199. Just a question, it fixed a few other people with this issue.
I have the same problem, app world won't connect to the server. I wanted to try the option of deleting desktop IPPP, but when I look in options>Advanced>Servcebook, I don't see any desktop IPPP listed .
Could it be listed with another name? Does anybody know this?
I don't dare uninstall App world cause acc. to the official BB site I shouldn't have this service in The Netherlands. Stangely enough though it does work, but only with the free apps. When I try to go thruogh the Paypal page I get that message that it is unable to connect to the app world server.
I am not on a BES by the way, so that can't be the problem either.
