I was offered the promo to list an item for free using the ebay app. I downloaded it and filled in info for my item but I get an error message...no network...try again.
Everything else on the phone can connect. What's the deal? I'd really like to list something from the phone. Any other work-arounds since my app is worthless?

I uninstalled and reinstalled and rebooted and everything else.
Earlier I could log in at least, but now since reinstalling I can't even sign in. The app gets worse and worse.

I am having the same problem, and have used the mobile app almost exclusively for over a year now. Everything else works fine, but when I try to list I get an error. The exact error says "Listing Error: System temporarily unavailable, please try listing again."
I have a Sony Xperia. I just updated the app, logged out and logged back in. Same message, happening all day. Haven't seen any technical announcements or been able to find any answers through searching tech support.

I called ebay and the girl told me to wait about an hour and try again. Evidently they did something on their end.
Well, I waited an hour and still NOTHING. I had a feeling that would be the outcome.
I'll call again tomorrow. Hopefully they can explain what the deal is.

I'm right there with you .....App looks great but doesn't work...SYSTEM TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE, PLEASE TRY LISTING AGIAN. I've gotten this message for two hours now.
I'm sure they didn't figure the system being overloaded. I'm sure this is a way to work the bugs out for them but it sucks for those of us who really wanted to get in that one free auction a day.
Hope they work this out soon.
