I set up yesterday morning and still nothing. No icon, no pushed updates... nothing. I also tried Fox News, but didn't like it. Unsubscribed from that.

I just unsubscribed from Accuweather and re-subscribed. Will see if that makes a difference, but at this point, I doubt it.

I set it up. It took a few hours for me. It was over night actually. I like it once you get used to it. It tells you the high and low for the day not the current temp.it also tells you for example if it is sunny or raining.

Anyone try any of the others and if so did they work?

Like zerog46 said it takes the better part of a day to appear. In my case I picked the push from the Weather Network and it updates twice in a 24 hour period. For the Weather Network I see an icon on my display. Check your browser cache. You should show data in the cache if it is set up.

That is a different service. Push weather is not the same as Web Signals weather. Push weather is from Weather Network, and Web Signals weather is from Accuweather.

I am confused, I understood them both to be push content. I guess I will need to Google the term "Web Signals".

Web Signals was just released by RIM a few days ago. The confusion for everyone right now is just what has you confused... what exactly is the difference? Who knows. I do know that the Push Weather worked on my device, but the Web Signals Weather does not, at least not yet (24 hours +).

I prefer WeatherBug Direct. However the Accuweather app has a better animated radar view.

I like the web signals and they don't use any space on the BB.

You can also check the address below on your BB to see what you signed up for even if they did not come across yet.

BBWeather was recommended to me, and that is now my weather app of choice. Works well on the Bold, although I wish it had Bold/OS 4.6 icons. Oh well...

Still haven't seen Accuweather show up.

Thank you for educating me. I didn't know there was a distinction between pushed and web signals.
Nonetheless, it is still NOT showing.

Have you tried pulling the battery or re-starting your device? I nstalled it on my BB and could not find anything either other than the initial screen once it launched. But once I pulled the battery and re-started an ICON showed up on the desktop.
