Default Help get this lame weather man off my BB!

Please Login to Remove!

I installed Plasmic Weather updater on my 7250. It sucks. I'm wearing my sunglasses and it says Rain all day! and yes...I have the correct city. How do I remove this service? I have removed game downloads on the applications menu, but cant find this one.

Any help would be appreciated.

The Plazmic Weather updater is subscription based Web content that is pushed to the device. It is not an "application" per se and, therefore doesn't show up under Options/Applications.

To remove the weather subscription there are two steps:

1) Unsubscribe to the automatic updates by returning to the "Push Content" section of the "BlackBerry Extras" Website and deleting the weather subscription. (basically do what you did to sign up but delete your city instead of adding your city)

2) Delete the content that is already resident on your device. The pushed content should appear in your BlackBerry Browser Bookmarks under the "Browser Channels" heading.

Good luck!

Just FYI, I use BBWeather app(free), it doesn't seem to affect battery usage, has options for intervals to refresh the data, it is pretty basic, and has a weather.com logo at the bottom, so I assume that is where they get it.

Right now it says sunny, current 75, high 82, low 59 in Disney World, and based on the walk to Downtown Disney for lunch, I would say that is about right.
