    BB Weather OTA and installing with Desktop Mgr

    Advertisement



    I have 3 big problems and it seems that a few of you have had them, but they are not active posts, so I post again.

    1. I am not able to have Desktop Manager 4.2.2 SP2, I can only get sp1, because when installing Roxio I get a Runtime Error. A nice guy at RIM was saying he didn't know what it was OR it could be because I have Roxio easy cd creator on my puter. That shouldn't pose a problem should it? I didn't think so, even tho he did. I had the sp2 on last month when I had my first curve but had to send it back. any help would appreciated

    2. Now, onto the main purpose of this thread, BB Weather. I CANNOT get it installed with my desktop manager. I see the alx file, I click on it, and I get an error, no more applications can be found for your phone.

    Ok so one guy suggests that I try OTA. I do. It goes on fine. But it locks up. Then I take the battery out, I start bb weather, I get an error, NO WEATHER PROFILES SPECIFIED> So I try to hit the left key, enter a zip or someting. Nothing.

    I read one thread somewhere I would have PM'd him but I am too new, and it mentioned I could have the wrong tcp settings. can someone help

    thanks for even reading
    Eric

    Download again via OTA... there is not DM version to download -

    use the OTA link and once it is on your device... only hit the pearl... hit the pearl again and the menu will pop up... then select options... now create your weather profile by adding your zip code and giving it a name... u should be all set now.

    on some networks you will have to click the disable mds proxy box...

    thanks you SO much. I will try that. Right now I have the DM off my puter so I have to reinstall it to get the OTA version off and reinstall and do what you said. I will keep you posted.

    But this link here from the BB Forum (nevermind it is on the BB forum and I am not allowed to post links yet ) isn't that a Desktop mgr install? There is one . but I will try ur way lol

    thanks

    Maybe there is a problem. the alx file wouldn't work to try to install with desktop mgr. Then I was able to install OTA but I kept getting tunnel name invalid and now it is just locked up. I did follow those instructions and did get further than I was able prior to this thread. But now just locked up, and I took the program off the curve

    This link Definitely works: (http colon slash slash blackberrytools dot sourceforge dot net slash OverTheAir slash ) got it working with the help of you guys here and JSanders on Blackberryforums.com. (LOL can't post links..don't know why)
    the key thing for me was the tcp , which I could not find, and was blank, I had to put the wap.voicestream.com in for Tmo.

    Nonetheless, at one point I was thrown off because it just locked up.

    good luck
