    bbweather problem on my 8703e

    Advertisement



    Ok will try and keep this short and simple. I downloaded bbweather and it seemed to download ok. I can type in a zip code or location ID or city name etc however, but it wont save. When I go to select OK (to save the location ID) my cursor will highlight the OK button, but when i select it nothing happens. As if the OK function does not exist. If I move the cursor over any other selction areas, no problems. The cancel function works and everything else seems ok. So the problem is I cannot save any location. I removed the program and reloaded it again and same problem.

    I am with Verizon but I get the feeling the problem might either be with bbweather and the 8703e, or my bb unit itself or maybe I am doing something wrong.

    I really would like to have bbweather, I have used it before and really like it.

    Has anyone had or heard of this problem before (and solved it)?

    Thanks

    location id for dallas,tx is USTX0327 you get this from weather.com. put in the city you wont for the search and in the address bar at the top you will find the location id you need.

    I know how to get the location ID no problem. I can enter that alright it is just that I cant save the location ID that I enter into bbweather location field. I go to hit the OK button to save it and nothing happens.

    Maybe I will try to load bbweather via Destktop Manager that might fix the problem...

    Yep I disabled the MDS Proxy as well. The easiest way to explain the problem I suppose is to give you an example....if you were doing a quick reply here on pinstack and you put the cursor on Post Quick Reply (It lights up) then you click it and your reply is posted..... Now in BBWeather I put the cursor over the OK button in location field, it also lights up but when I click it nothing happens....

    Re: bbweather problem on my 8703e

    Do I have to fill anything in the description field? below the Location ID? Maybe that is the problem. I have not been filling in this field.

    Thanks in advance

    You must fill in data in the field below "location ID" - this info is used as a file name - click save and enjoy the bbweather application.

    You must give the location a description. If you put the code for Dallas then put Dallas in the description.
