Default Anyone Get WLS to work on 8900?

Please Login to Remove!

Anyone get Windows Live Search to work on the 8900? When I try and open it absolutely nothing happens - no errors pop up and the app doesn't open.

Thanks,
SMF

I have been seeking the same answer, so I switched over to SuperPages.

mDRagON,

I saw your note in the other thread - seems we're getting no response. It also seems that WLS hasn't been updated in quite a while. Perhaps I'll try superpages.

Thanks,

I just checked it again, and they now have versions available for the newer software versions. There is one for 4.6.1 and it works perfectly, GPS and all!!

The new version that you get directly from wls.live.com works on all 8900 OS versions, the previous build works on OS .199

WLS is a great app, but it won't stop running in the background on my phone.
