This is being investigated, but the origin of the issue is not on the mobile server. Unfortunately I do not have a time estimate for when this will be resolved.

Installed mobile armory on my kindle fire just now and saw this error message. I tried it on my EVO, and it said the same thing. I panicked, for a second, then was confused when I was able to log into the game normally.

I have the same error message. I logged on and had no problem playing, but the mobile armory still gives me the locked account script.

I found in breaking news where blizzard said:

"We are aware of an issue that is causing the WoW Remote app to display an incorrect error message to players whose account subscription status is Pending. If you receive an error message that states “This World of Warcraft account is locked, banned, suspended, or under review” when you log into the WoW Remote app, please wait until the pending transaction completes and retry the app."

I checked and my account is pending. Hopefully as soon as the transaction is approved, I will be able to log into the app again.

I will add some more info to this.
I have not had a problem with the app until last night. It gave me the error that my account was suspended, locked or banned and so forth.

The steps I took were to uninstall the app and reinstall it. This did not work so i calle it a night.
This morning i try it again before i log onto the game and it allows me to access the auction house however the app will no longer remember ANY settings that are set including my login causing you to log in and everytime and change all of the settings again.

Hope this helps some more :)

This is directly related to the PENDING payment status on WoW accounts. On the day that your account's subscription recurs, it enters this status. was handling this in a weird way, but a hotfix will be out to address it shortly.
