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:

APN: wap.cingular

Username: [email address]

Password: CINGULAR1



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?

John Clark 01-22-2008 12:35 PM

I think so....change it and try. Though, if it's working why bother?

iamkidd 01-22-2008 12:37 PM

Yeah, true.... just curious. Seriously, thank you though!

How do you copy the code to the BlackberryWeather software so I can make it work?
PLEASE HELP!

John Clark 01-25-2008 06:13 PM

Copy what code to where?

papasito_35 01-25-2008 06:15 PM

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?
please help..

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.

papasito_35 01-25-2008 06:23 PM

That worked! How many locations may I add to this?

juwaack68 01-25-2008 06:24 PM

I've had up to 10 on mine..... don't know if there is a limit, though.

Code? I, too, am confused. May or may not be related to your question :razz:

papasito_35 01-25-2008 06:27 PM

You're welcome (y)

And it's 'Sis' (do you really think a guy would have this female bunny avatar ;-))

papasito_35 01-25-2008 06:32 PM

Hahaha,

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.

NJBlackBerry 01-26-2008 03:53 PM

Yes, the method of getting BBWeather to work on devices with trackballs has only been documented several hundred times. Even an FAQ.

And this added to the discussion because?............nice

NJBlackBerry 01-26-2008 05:08 PM

Gee, sorry I offended you.
I'm not allowed to post my opinion?
People ask the same questions over and over.
