1. OM, check your APN settings, you have anything set under Options, Advanced, TCP? If not set that to your carrier APN. Check the Aftermarket Software forum a scroll down from this on for more info on Opera Mini.

2. Ditto on BB weather. The app creator has posted some help about BB weather in that same forum.

3. There is a whole forum dedicated to themes, ringtones, etc., on this board, you'll find it by scrolling down on the main page of BB Forums.



Good luck.

Once bbweather loads, click the trackball to get the options. I had those problems at first myself, but the trackball is all you need to press.

You don't need an IP address for BB Weather... Make sure that in BB Weather, under options, you have clicked (check mark on) DISABLE MDS PROXY.
Verify your APN/TCP settings are there, and reboot your device via a 30-sec battery pull, let it boot back up. Check it.

Tried that still getting a dns error for some reason....

Do you have a profile loaded? Are you sure it is correctly configured for the city you want?

JSanders 03-15-2007 08:47 AM

Test a city, like Washington DC, but putting the zipcode in the location ID: 20500; Description: Wash DC.
Click OK, and then save. UpDate Now.
