    For a few days now all bold 9900 users have been unable to play youtube videos. I checked using a bold 9700 and youtube plays fine. I was just wondering for people that currently have the z10 if you are having any issues playing youtube videos. Since its only affecting 9900 users i dont think this is getting much attention but trust me we are feeling this pain. Check out the thread below (1 of many that has been opened on this topic)

    YouTube on Bold 9900 no longer working after reset

    UPDATE!
    Temporary workaround. Thanks flyadan for sharing.


    When you open a video on the top left of screen you'll see
    A pull down menu. Open it up, and scroll down to find
    "Desktop" this will open the desktop version and you
    Can now watch the video.

    for me i load youtube, search the video, load it up, and the play symbol appears on the video. normally i hit that symbol, get a data warning message, and the video plays.
    now when i hit the symbol, nothing happens, no data warning, no playing.

    the funny thing is, if someone links a video in Facebook, i van play it fine. if i search for the same video by youtube, it doesnt work.

    That's bizarre. I've had no problems. I just tested it now and it started with zero lag and is playing perfectly.

    Tried about five videos last night and today on my 9930 and nothing happens when I click the 'Play' icon. This is through the mobile YouTube site.

    Very similar to what darkehawke is describing. On YouTube mobile site, if I click "play", nothing happens. Same video through desktop - sometimes works, more often I get "can't show this video on this device" error.
    This started 2-3 days ago, worked fine before that.

    Must be something YouTube screwed up.

    Working fine on my Z10. Bear in mind that the Z10 doesn't use an app though, it just uses the browser so it's not likely to suddenly stop working anyway.
