    I am not sure I understand what your problem is.

    BlackBerry App World can be installed on your Storm, is that where the failure occured?

    If it was installed, were you were trying to download an application, is that where it failed?

    You mention pulling the battery, is it possible you interrupted a normal download in progress? What happens when you attempt to restart the download?

    Got you now, thanks.

    Pulling the battery forces a reset. When you restart App World, does it go the the Featured Items page or does it continue the stuck download?

    If it tries to continue and you can't interrupt it, you may have to remove App World and re-install it. I would think that would reset it back to normal.

    I am having the exact same problem with my brand new Tour. I downloaded the latest App World, then tried to get a free app and it's stuck on "Starting download..."

    However, I have no option to "re-download" the program. If I look it up again under the catagories, it gives me all the other options but download. Any other ideas?

    Me too. Same problem trying to download the free Weatherbug app with the new Appworld.
    No download button and "Starting Download" showing all day.

    Managed to download the Weatherbug app from a direct download link but it's still showing "starting Download" in "My World" - I think it's broken.

    Have you tried going in to applications and setting permissions for app world to full access (all allowed) I'd look but mines currently rebooting.

    I'm having this same issue. I am trying to download Pandora on my Tour (free application) and it is stuck in "starting download" for 72 hours now. The green bar isn't moving either. It doesn't give me the option to cancel or restart the download. When I pull up Pandora in app world, it doesn't offer me the "download" button. In 'advanced options' 'applications', Pandora isn't listed. I've even tried removing and reinstalling Blackberry App World....any fix yet?

    This is a known issue with App World. Unfortunately, they have yet to release a proper fix for it. So, if you don't have the option to re-download the app once you go back to App World, you'll have to find a direct download link to get what you want.

    I dont know if anyone knows this or not...

    Does the App being stuck with "Starting Download" take any additional system resources up or run the battery down any quicker?

    Or is it just a GUI glitch?
