BBWeather Help PLEASE!!!
I normally don’t need to post new threads because I’m usually pretty good about finding what I need using search. However, this is not one of those times. I have a BlackBerry 8800, which I absolutely love. I have installed BBWeather v.74 on my phone. I can’t get it to work for the life of me. I get one of 2 error messages: “Invalid URL parameter” or “open tunnel-failure” depending on whether or not the Disable MDS Proxy button is checked or not. I tried setting up my profile using a zip code for the location id, as well as the location id from WeatherChannel.com and weather.com – still nothing. I tried changing my TCP settings to sp.cingular, username and password blank, and still nothing. I am on the Cingular network (now AT&T) and my phone is unlocked. What steps should I try next? Also, is there perhaps another FREE weather application out there that's better?
Thank you so much for all your help guys!
TCP settings for AT&T:
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.
It's working now!! Woo Hoo! Thank you very much!
One last thing- does it matter if "CINGULAR1" is all capitalized or not?
I think so....change it and try. Though, if it's working why bother?
Yeah, true.... just curious. Seriously, thank you though!
How do you copy the code to the BlackberryWeather software so I can make it work?
Copy what code to where?
I have the AT&T 8800 and downloaded the BBweather and I cant get it to work. when I click on the icon it tells me there is no profile yet?
Follow these steps EXACTLY and your device shouldn't lock up:
1 - Click on the new BBWeather icon.
2 - Since no locations are set up yet, you'll receive an error that there are no profiles set up, just click OK with the trackball.
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.
That worked! How many locations may I add to this?
I've had up to 10 on mine..... don't know if there is a limit, though.
I really do appreciate it bro, Thnx! I love my 8800 too.
And it's 'Sis' (do you really think a guy would have this female bunny avatar ;-))
Thnx much Sis. Your a Smart 1!
I installed BB Weather on my VZW 8830 last night and it froze my device. I had to do a hard reset, then remove the app to unfreeze again...a total pain in the @$$!
Yeah you really do have to follow blackberryfaq.com method of making BBWeather work. It crashes HARD if you doesn't do it.
Yes, the method of getting BBWeather to work on devices with trackballs has only been documented several hundred times. Even an FAQ.
Gee, sorry I offended you.
I'm not allowed to post my opinion?
People ask the same questions over and over.
