Default bb weather options

Please Login to Remove!

I set up the bb weather application for toronto. My question is that it has saved it to an sms with the blackberry push link or whatever it is. Yet when I click on it I have to reset it up to get to the weather. What is blackberry push and how do I set this up properly? Thank you.

Well push means that your device is always listening for data to be pushed to it as apposed to pull method which means it asks for data every 5, 10 or x minutes. Push is better because instead of getting data every x minutes you get it as soon as it was sent to your device. This is not something you setup on the BB it will do it itself if it can or if the application supports it. For email it's a push method for stuff like weather updates it's a pull method, meaning it will check for updates every 30 minutes or so depending on how many minutes you set it up for.

Mail is important (most times) and sometimes time is money, so you need it as soon as it was sent to you. Weather on the other hand... not so much. If you need to know weather up to the second it changes its a little over kill would be nice but it changes so often you would drain your device talking to the update server evey time the wind changes or temperature changes.

so how do I get the weather app setup properly then as far as accessing it from the home screen. The option I picked said it would be on the home screen but I don't see any icon anywhere.

you have to run that program once and that should put an icon on your home screen for weather. If you cant see the icon after running the setup then from your home screen click your bb button and select "show all" and see if for some reason it was hidden. If you can find the icon click the bb on it and uncheck the hide option.

so tell me what you see on your screen? Oh BTW do you have a data plan as it requires that you connect to the internet to set it up. Just asking the easy questions I'm sure you do but just checking.

ya I have a data plan. One thing I will mention as I read somewhere that certain themes don't show certain applications is that I have Ascaril 2.0 theme on my phone. I deleted the old account and set it up again. It still didn't make an icon show up. I did save the page to my messages folder. That does work. However, no icon is on my home screen.
