Welcome to the Forums. If I understand correctly, you used the Live search engine from Microsoft. This has been abandoned for the new and improved Bing (not sure if it is because I use Google). You can still hit this site by entering the following address from your mobile browser m.live.com It will redirect you to a mobile version of Bing.

As to a weather app, there are many good ones out there. I would suggest taking the time to search and read through the forums for feedback from other users. I personally use the accuweather feed from the BB mobile site. It is free and gives me what I need.

Good luck

I went to the following link on my Blackberry Bold-9000 and selected 4.6 as the Blackberry OS...
mobile.search.live.com/client/download_manual.aspx

It then ask if I wanted to install the Live Search application and I selected Download
The app downloaded and installed and updated...
I now have the Map with Live Search option in my view Contacts menu
