Default Accuweather on Curve 9300 never connects

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

I wonder if you can assist with a perplexing issue.

I am having a major issue with Accuweather on a Blackberry Curve 9300. when I install it and open it it simply never connects and I have noticed that my BIS service (blackberry logo next to the 3G notification) seems to disappear at the same time. Once Accuweather is closed down, my BIS service(logo) returns.
I have tried the following:
Upgraded my SIM card.
Uninstalling and reinstalling Accuweather.
Done a factory reset (loader.exe /resettofactory) on the blackberry and reloaded the OS6 firmware (6.0.0.749) for the phone and then reinstalled Accuweather.

Nothing helps, it does the same thing every time.. Please note that this is a brand new phone and all other services, such as email etc. work flawlessly. also my husband has an identical phone with the same OS 6 and the same upgraded SIM card and Accuweather works fine on his phone.

Any assistance in this regard would be really appreciated.

Thanking you,
Gail de Wet.

The phone is supported as is the OS you show so unless the BB is used or a corporate unit that has a leftover or current IT policy restriction it should work. AppWorld does show a support link for help. IT may be useful to see if they have anything that could help.

Good day tsac,
Thank you for your reply. The phone was in fact connected to BES, it was my husbands phone, but the IT policy has definitely been removed by the loader.exe /resettofactory command and double-checked by typing BUYR at the status screen.
I have contacted Accuwather via their support email, I am hoping they will come back with a solution.

Again, thank you for your time and reply.
