    Trying to get rid of Push Weather

    Advertisement



    This "Weather Push" application



    that (evidently) comes with all BB software is driving me nuts! HOW can I get rid of this permanently?

    I've gone to the BB "home" site and looked for some way to unsubscribe to it without success. All there is below the image is "Get Web Signal" - it appears that I already have that.

    I've connected to DM and unchecked it but it came back on reboot.



    If you know how to do it, please post explicit steps for me - you'll be my hero!

    Carrier is Alltel. It's the principal of the thing - I don't like to hide aps but I guess I could do that.

    First I hide stuff and then forget about it and wonder where all my free space went. I'm more of a 'create a folder' person and combine icons when things get too crowded. Thanks Cat.

    There should be a link that says cancel, John. I just downloaded it and it's right on the home screen.

    Been there a thousand times, Cowboy. All I get it the "Get Web Signal" - nothing else. I don't get it!

    go to browser, choose bookmarks from//menu, look for browser channels, you should see one browser icon with temperature and weather conditions. scroll to it, select 'delete channel' from menu. That should remove it from your device

    You have to do it from the weather site you posted a screen shot of not the BB "Home" site.. Click on home or other locations tab when the screen you posted is open and see if you find it there.

    This will work to remove the shortcut but will it not come back if he doesn't unsubscribe?

    That's how I've been going to the home screen, Cowboy, and what I mentioned in tne OP is what I've found there. There's SUPPOSED to be an "unsubcribe" but it's NOT there. I'm totally baffled. I've been trying this off and on for weeks!

    That is weird then because it's right there on mine. This is on your 8330, correct? It should be exactly the same as mine. 8330,Alltel only difference is the region. Confusing!!

    Here's what I'm seeing:


    ...and yes, it's my 8330 on Alltel just like yours - except not exactly!
