    help with BB weather

    Advertisement



    Hello all

    I just installed BB weather onto my 8100 pearl and when I try to run the program it locks up my BB. After eventually it will come up with an error screen stating something about and uncought exception and this program needs to be terminated. Can someone offer me some help to get past this so I can try this program? Oh yeah by the way I'm running OS 4.2.1.66 if that matters

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~hard reset your pearl, if that didn't work then try re-installing the bbweather.

    Yeah I already have accuweather as a push service. But I wanted to try something different. I guess I will just stick to that for now.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Have you tried Pocket Day? They offer a FREE trial and it offers a pretty good weather forcast. If you search the threads on Pinstack, you will find the link to download it. Good luck......

    With the new OS, i think it switched sockets around for apps. Hence the reason MMS and JiveTalk don't play well together...

    Do you have anything else running?

    I first tried it when I had jive talk and opera running then I tried it after a battery pull with only the basics running. I'm thinking your right its another 1.66 thing grrrr.

    This will happen sometimes, not always though. The problem is that on the initial load, you don't have a location configured yet and for some reason this "freeware" doesn't like that on some units. When you get the exception message, do not press ok. Click the Menu or ESC button, you should be able to bypass and quickly configure a location via zip code. Once done, reset your BB and you will be ok the next time you try to launch the application.

    I think I got it FINALLY!!!

    Ok here's what I did. First I noticed that when it would not freeze until I either rolled the pearl or pressed a button. After a battery pull to start over I opened the program again then pressed down on the pearl and it didn't freeze up but it gave me a menu. Then I went into options and set up a new profile by entering my zip code and also putting a check mark in to disable MDS. At that point I saved it and then it worked. Afterwards I did a battery pull to be safe.

    So it seems that right after you install and run it for the first time you cannot press anything but the pearl and go from there to set it up.

    Thanks everyone for the help.

    i've had the same issue and now I'm as far as your are but I get an 'open tunnel' error now. I think I'm just not clear on where to put in my zip code and such

    Hmm well I didn't get the open tunnel thing but if you press the pearl down you will get a menu then open up options then it should bring up a screen that says profiles and it will probably be empty. Then press the BB menu button and click on add then enter in your zip code. I hope this helps good luck
