    BB Weather Hates My Berry

    Advertisement



    Asked earlier today what a good weather app was for the BB and received reponses about certain sites to go to in the Browser... and one dude said BB Weather. So I'm like okay.. check it out.

    So I downloaded it from this site using the DM along with that new Optimus Prime theme (which I recommend... good theme!) So I try to open BB Weather and I get this on the screen:

    Error: No Weather Profiles specified.

    On top of that I can't exit out of the app using the escape button.

    On top of that I have no access to any menu options.

    On top of that I cannot go to my home screen using the red "end call" button.

    I tried using ALT+Escape and instead of bringing me to my app changer it brings me to the call logs. In this call log I cannot use the escape button to exit.

    Ontop of that any other apps I use, I cannot exit using the close option or the escpae button, only red "end call" button.


    I am deleting this from my BB. I hate it, and I haven't even had it more than 10 minutes now. Someone delete this app from the download screen before you screw up another Berry. I sure hope I have no further prob's once the app's deleted!!!

    Use this thread
    http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...work_81xx.html

    you may have to try a couple of times...if it freezes just do a battery pull. Just try and follow the directions. I had issues with it but kept trying and now it works.

    Just bookmark this website and use that for your weather. http://m.wund.com/

    Even better, open the website, enter your city, then bookmark the results and you will not need to enter your city each time - Example:

    I want either an app or a launcher. Something that I can access with ONE CLICK

    The BB Weather app is very easy to use. It's just that first time, when you start the program and it says "No weather profiles" don't hit any button but the trackball. Enter the menu and setup your profiles.

    Okay, So decided to give it another go. I re-downloaded it and did the whole trackball clickity click thing while it was open and got real excited when an actual menu popped up. So I go to >Options>Current Profiles, and plugged in my zipcode, which is 90713. In the description I put in my city, Lakewood, CA. After saving I get a quick message saying "Retrieving Weather, Please Wait." That flashes for not even a second before "Error: Open tunnel - failure" shows on the page and in a pop-up. So I did some investigating coz I was so close. I read about 4 threads in here and went back and clicked on Disable MDS Proxy.It does the same thing. I tried another Lakewood Zipcode and the same thing. I tried a Long Beach Zipcode and the same thing. I have EDGE displayed, and I'm about ready to delete this yet again, but I figured I'd run the problem by Reddog or the other Pinstack Guru's to try and walk me through this. I just want another weather app... I'm about ready to delete my Yahoo email and re-download Yahoo2Go. Don't wanna do that!
