kcareet...

Beyond411- I have had some issues with it as well lately. It is free application which the developer only part-time supports. I'll email him and see what's up.

BBWeather- easy enough to handle, read the FAQ here, works well:
How do I get BB Weather to work on the 8100 / 8300 / 8800? - BlackBerryFAQ.com

Outlook emails on your phone... won't happen in BIS. If BES, then yes. BIS mail does not sync or reconcile from Outlook.

You are welcome.

BIS has never worked with Outlook.

You could do Desktop Redirector, with Outlook. Check that out here:
FAQ: What Are The Methods of Receiving Email On BlackBerry?

I don't think it is a great option.

Well i had Bis - and my outlook worked with my bb for quite some time. i had a message from tmobile telling me that if i didn't change something, outlook would stop working?

Im still having weather problems. i did everything the site said, but i'm now coming up with "Bad DNS Error" over and over.??

BBWeather, make sure in the BBW options, if you are BIS, that you CHECK the box that says "Disable MDS".

When you say your "outlook worked with my bb for quite some time" how did it work, can you explain? Is your Outlook on your PC as an application or is it Outlook Web Access...OWA?

Yeah, i use outlook on my work computer with windows xp. I can't really explain much. I just know i've had it working for quite some time. And like i said before, i received the text from tmobile saying to chagne something....but i dont' know what.

I've disabled MDS. Still no luck - this sucks.

After disabling MDS, then pull your battery and reboot.
Do you have a city zipcode set as the Location ID?

BBW does actually work, lol. It's free, don't whine. You are about the 1,000th person I know for whom it just takes a little extra effort.
