Red face BBweather use

Please Login to Remove!

Hi guys,

First of all, I would like to say HI!
i found your site and for what I read, there are some pretty interesting subjects out there...

Also, I have a question and haven't been able to find the answer yet...

I just uploaded the BBWEATHER hardware on my Blackberry 7250 with the software V4.10.303

I tried going into OPTIONS to adjust the setup to make it work...the city for the forecast has to be entered...but when I write the city in the LOCATION ID and after I save my setup, the attempt to get a forecast gives me the message "invalid location provided"...

my question is: what is the correct format to select the city...of if there is a step I'm missing, what is it? Has anyone tried that before?

P.s: please note that I'm a newby and I don't know the site that well yet...if the information was extremly obvious, I excuse myself in advance...

Thanks and have a good day

Location ID = zip code (at least for those of us in the U.S.)

Use this link for finding city codes when you may not know the ZIP code

ASP.NET Resources - Determine location ID for the weather server control

Or if you can find a link for searching zip codes that would work too.
