app error 523 advice?
Hey everyone, I've become frustrated as hell with this app error. This is the 4th day i've been using the 9700 and i've had a lotta intermittent app error 523's. I've wiped and loaded .405 twice and .423 twice with fresh installs of all apps and this error keeps coming back. It, is intermittent and happens even if no apps are running per say. Only things running would be bbm, youmail, home, browser, call log, & messages. I don't mess with 3rd party themes. Just precision att, and zen. The only thing i did notice is that Mobile Network was on auto & 2g. I only use 2g so i just switched to manual. i guess time will tell. Any other thoughts?
Edit: noticed, once i turned mobile network to manual, it selected att after bat pull and option is gone. Maybe that was it?
Not really after all you've tried already...to me it sounds that this error is really unspecific, could be related to a theme, an app, a microSD card, a wrong battery...has it gone better since your last change?
Welp, it happened with both the precision and zen themes, I've done fresh installs of each app individually ota after each wipe (not using any apps with known compatibility issues or anything random), also happened with 2 micro sd cards and 3 different batteries. Half of the time it would error out with no apps running and the phone just sitting. Odd thing is, there hasn't been a single hiccup since I changed that mobile network option. I'll repost with an update later tonite. Very strange but I hope that was it. I've seen a lot of reports on the web of ppl having the same issue intermittently, but I don't think anyone with the issue has gone thru the lengths I have to isolate it lol. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
Count on my fingers being crossed as well :-)
Thanks! still good so far!

Deleted the corrupt theme with bbsak and thought I was good to go but 12 hrs later, threw the error again and twice since. Anyone have any thoughts?
Update: Wiped and reloaded for the last time. First app i went to DL was app world and it kicked the error. Deleted and pulled. Keeping it off. I tink I'm finally good to go lol.
Final Conclusion: App World, or weatherbug which I downloaded from there was def the culperate. WB doesn't show as running in background but does update like a widget. Downloaded weatherbug ota and keeping app world off. 20 hrs and still going strong!
Here we go again!
Long story short, dropped the 9700 & was still working fine but all scratched up so returned it and got a new one. Tried a few things and wipes but APP ERROR 523 keeps popping up! Not battery, not sd card. Now fresh os install, bone stock, no apps, themes etc. None. No restore either. Go do dL BBM ota and it threw the error. Is it more likely its BBM or the hardware?
this error commonly happens when you install not compatible software for your device, can be fixed by doing a hard reset aka batt pull, reloading the os....also may happen due to an IT policy on BES users, reading your post you said you were trying to install bbm ota, was that from the official bbm download page? or from the non blackberry dl site for bbm?
3 wipes and 3 fresh installs. Not on BES. BBM from blackberry.com/messenger
I just went to a different store and made them give me a new one. Came w/ .296. About to wipe and load .423 and see what happens. I figured might as well rule the device out. I use this for business and it screwed up my whole day today.
Also on the one i returned, the error log was a disaster and wasn't consistent. It would also reboot on start-up and re-boot when I turned on wifi randomly (after hard resets) Even without restoring anything.
