Unhappy Issues Downloading from MyBlackberry

Please Login to Remove!

Hi - I've recently tried to download a few wallpapers from MyBlackberry on my Pearl 9105 3G (personal phone).

Everytime I try to connect I get a 403 Forbidden message and cannot download the wallpaper. Any ideas as to what I can try?

Thanks!

Stephen

That message indicates you do not have permission to access the page. Does it require an account or login?

I have a myBlackberry login - the link itself is to Amazon's AWS servers on a cloud - I get exactly the same message when trying to access the link from a normal PC but doesn't give an option to log in.

TBH, I'm wondering if it's a country thing - they maybe don't allow access to the content from outside of the US.

If you are getting the same error on a PC then the blackberry isn't at fault.

Is the URL something you can share so that others can test?

Sure - here's the URL for the Snowy Mountain wallpaper - this is from an e-mail from MyBlackberry;

myblackberry.s3.amazonaws.com/wallpapers/nature-5-360x400.png

Have removed protocol from this link so it doesn't recognise it as a URL as I have less than 10 posts...bah!!

I get access denied as well. So it's not a country thing.

I tried e-mailing the Blackberry site webmaster, and the enquiry got bumped basically saying it was nothing to do with them and contact my provider and all that rubbish. Poor show. At least I know it's not me!!

After doing a bit of digging into accessing content on Amazon AWS servers it sounds like it may be incorrectly configured...

I could if I could get it from a PC, but I can't access the link from any PC, Mac or my Blackberry! Suspect it relates to the Amazon AWS setup, but RIM bumped my enquiry...
