and over and over. How do you think one gets 14k+ posts? It's from answering the same questions over and over.

I used Juuwack's instructions in this post this very afternoon, and they worked perfectly. I highly recommend following them.

And NJBlackberry - if you are from NJ, and went to UMd, and own a blackberry, there is no way you could be offensive.

You did not offend me NJ, it was just my opinion. I think you guys do a great job here. I think though that moderators should take a break now and again so they are more patient with schlubs like me. Cheers

Unfortunatly, it's not your place to tell anyone here they should take a break, especially a moderator who cleans porn spam, language, and answers questions, so there is a clean, informative forum like the one we have here for everyone to enjoy.

3 - Press the trackball (NOT the Menu button) and click Options.

4 - Press the Menu key and click Add.

5 - For all US locations, use the zip code for the Location. Use this for zip codes you don't know, or for non-US zip codes:

ASP.NET Resources - Determine location ID for the weather server control

6 - Enter a description name (i.e., LA, Orlando, New York).

7 - You can keep the Forecast Days at 5, or increase it up to 10 days.

8 - If you would like the temp displayed in Fahrenheit, leave the Units as 'Standard'. For Celsius, change it to 'Metric'.

9 - Click OK to save.

Press the Menu button and Close/Save to back out.

I followed your steps and when I tried it now says "invalid url parameter", Any ideas??

if you are on BIS, in the BBW options, check the "Disable MDS" box. You may need to remove the battery and reboot, again.

I got the BBweather to work perfectly. Just wanted to say thanks to you guys for putting up with the newbie rockheads such as myself. Without this forum I'd probably use my Pearl as a boat anchor.

Have you read the first part of this post?

Make sure your TCP is set to:
APN: wap.voicestream.com
Username: (blank)
Password: (blank)

If you are on a BES then leave the "disable MDS proxy" box unchecked.

If you are not on a BES then check the box.

Yes, you need a data plan of some kind in order to use this app.

This app uses data from a data plan so, no, this app won't work for you.

You might be able to find something that will send you text messages for weather but I'm not familiar with them.

Hi everyone.

BBWeather was working BEFORE I upgraded OS.

I removed the app, reloaded it. Followed juwaack68's instruction step by step, no check on the Disable MDS (I'm on BES).

Still "Invalid URL Parameter."

Location ID RPXX0036 (was working before). BB 8800. App Version 4.2.1.115, Platform 2.3.0.87. No entries in the TCP. DM ver 4.3.

I'm lost here. Thanks in advance.
