    I'm sure this isn't a new problem, but I'm trapped without any BlackBerry World apps. I know, third world smartphone problem...

    But, I rely on a few key BlackBerry apps and since I returned from Android to BB10, I find myself in a quandary...

    I used my BBID on my Android phone and now BB10 won't allow me to use it again on their OS. Big deal, I'll just wipe my device and create a new BBID. Done. well, that worked, but now, I can't add a payment method to BlackBerry World in order to re-purchase the apps I need. And I tried every method in existence (I think).

    I contacted Nemory Studios and he allowed me to pay him directly via PayPal and then he pushed his pro apps to my device, but I have no solution for the other apps I need.

    Have any others been in this predicament? If so, what can be done? Is contacting BlackBerry a viable option? Or am I just trapped in the "BlackBerry Upside Down" forever?

    This is a bad problem because although I can supplement my lack of apps with Android apps from the Play Store, we all know those apps won't work forever. So, I either have to choose to live without my precious BBM which I use with my wife and which connects with several BlackBerry apps I use, OR I keep my new BBID and can't use any paid BlackBerry apps.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    A couple of people reported that PayPal started working on BlackBerry World after updating to 10.3.3.3057.

    That may be worth trying.

    BlackBerry World was fine for me on credit card up until a few weeks ago. Then probably same symptoms as yours.

    Last week tried PayPal on it and it seemed to work on so far. Managed to purchase a couple of things.

    It's weird, I updated my Passport to 10.3.3.3057, but I now go to the "About" page and it says it's only 10.3.3.2031. Did I miss a step?

    No you have. 3057 OS version or. 2031 Software Release. They are the same. Check carefully under settings /about /category-OS dropdown. You will see what I mean.

    You're right! Thanks for the tip! But of course that saddens me to know I really am updated and still can't solve these issues.
