I had a similar problem on a Blackberry Q10. Wiping the phone corrected the App World problem.

Is there an upgrade to OS7.1 due? Do you think this will solve it?

I am not aware of a date for any release of an update to 7.1. I cannot guarantee a wipe will fix the problem. I do know that it did fix the problem one of my users had with App World downloads. Although I did do some investigating, you might try before you wipe it:

App World is normally installed as part of the OS from v7.0 onwards if i recall.  You have tried downloading the latest build from your carrier for that model of BB handset (in UK its 7.1.0.2807), and install it onto a PC, then use the Desktop Manager 7.1 app to then link the handset via USB and update the firmware/OS, where you can tick in include/exclude modules as part of the install (such as languages etc).

www.blackberry.com/appworld/download - use this URL on the handset browser to go direct and download the latest AW version.

http://uk.blackberry.com/software/desktop.html?IID=uk:bb:software:devices:oftware-update:download-desktop-software - latest version of the Desktop Software

http://www.blackberryos.com/downloads.php?do=cat&id=94 - quick way to download the full latest OS for the 9900, but check you get the right version for your region/carrier

Do a full BACKUP before you do anything.

its more likely how the app links to web service/internet and other facets of the OS, and if it doesn't install or config correctly, it can get very tedious.  we used to have issues updating it on the older v5.0 & v6.0 handsets, older version worked fine, then you reminded to update and then it freaked out and failed.

they won't be releasing anything for the Bold series now, it's no longer supported and all the new handsets are on v10.0+ -- 7.1.0 is the final release.
