I cannot sign in from my iphone but can sign in from my laptop.

Hello, @jwsimms3rd...

 

I searched Google for the error message, I recommend that you do some non-Dropbox related research (view screenshot below).

It appears that the "NSURL DOMAIN ERROR 999" message is an Apple specific error and has nothing to do with Dropbox (other than that's what you're trying to login to via your iPhone).

 

If you haven't done so already... post your question in the Apple Support Community regarding the error code.  Perhaps someone there can help you to rectify the problem.

 

Please let us know if you find out how to rectify the problem.

Yes. 

 

We're currently investigating this. Many thanks for highlighting.

@jwsimms3rd are you still seeing this error?

 

 If so can you let me know what you are doing when you get this error?

 

 If you prefer, I can reach out to you and we can continue the conversation that way.

 

Many thanks.

Ah, thank you.

 

We weren't originally sure if the error stemmed from our mobile app or our Paper app, that helps greatly!

 

We are continuing to investigate this.

Yes, I do. I can see my photos but can not open other files.
