    Hi,

    I am the happy owner of a brand new unlocked Blackberry Passport (was from Telus). It is running latest official 10.3.0.1418.

    However, searching for updates tells me the update server is temporally unavailable.

    Trying to open BBM tells me it has lost connection and to wait while it tries to reconnect. (never succeeded to get this app working even once).

    I am connected to a wi-fi network, because I do not have a data plan.

    I am able to send myself a PIN Message and yes I do see the blackberry logo near the signal bars on the top right.

    I don't know if it matters, but I am from Canada in Quebec City and my native language is french.

    Thanks you

    If you know how to sideload, sideload the older bbm version or check if there is update for bbm in BlackBerry world

    Yes I know how to sideload it. I also tried the leaked 2072 few days ago and it hadn't fixed the issue so I reinstalled with BB Link the official version.

    Which version should I try to sideload. Checked in BlackBerry World and it is up to date.

    Hi,

    I am using DDPB to sideload BBM and it says it did work but actually it doesn't downgrade the app. It would works if I could remove that system app.

    Trying to figure out another way..

    Edit : Sachesi : While sending: bbm-10.5.5.46-nto+armle-v7+signed.bar
    Error: failure 533 Application-Requires-System: version forbidden, want (10, 3, 1, 0) have (10, 3, 0, 1418)

    Edit 2 : Doesn't explain why searching for update fails. I am sure it is linked.

    Sometimes my Passport does this on Wifi too, because I switch devices and I have to go into BBM to switch my list over.

    Do you have a nano sim with a data plan attached? Or have a friend who has one? When my BBM can't connect to the server, what almost always works is turning WiFi off and letting it use my data to connect, and then I turn WiFi back on and it's all fine.

    Altight, bricked my Passport in order to fully flash back factory image and I did it twice. First time I did I still had the issue. Now it's fixed.

    I did notice a difference in the Settings --> About from the working and non-working install.

    The working install has "Software Version : 10.3.0.908 and OS Version : 10.3.0.1418" where the bad install only had version 10.3.0.1418 and "No Information" for Software version.

    May I have some explanation eh ?

    Seems to only appear if in the setup screen I wait until it is done connecting to Mobile Network even if I don't have a Data Plan
