    I cannot download apps from the app world so I did a little digging and apparently I have to setup my account on the blackberry app world website and update my payment information to do so. So I go there and I find out a blackberry smartphone is REQUIRED to do this, and the playbook does not count. I can't believe this crap. I will be forced to return this awesome device because of this.

    What? I've never owned a BB phone in my life and I've purchased apps with my PB.

    help me out if you can. I get this install error and this is the remedy on RIM's page.

    KB26671-"Install Error: There was a problem during installation. Please try again." is encountered when attempting to download an application from BlackBerry App World on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet

    Note: Step 2 of the BlackBerry App World setup process instructs to connect a BlackBerry smartphone. Currently, a BlackBerry PlayBook is not compatible with the web setup process so an active BlackBerry smartphone will be required to complete this.

    Hmm. I'm wondering now if something weird is going on with my account because i used to have a blackberry 2 years ago and it wants me to connect that old phone that I don't have anymore.

    Hum that is strange. I've not seen that issue before. Have you ever had a BB phone in the past? I should imagine RIM will fix this issue soon but in the mean time you could create a new BB ID on your PlayBook, that might help.

    Where do you access settings for appworld on the PB? I want to update my Paypal information and can't figure this out.

    Go to app world on your pc and register/sign in with your BBID to change/update your payment options. The sign-in link is at the top of the page - right-hand side.
