Cool Push Services

Please Login to Remove!

I just went to the Blackberry Help page from my Blackberry Browser, and for the first time, there were actually options for "Push Services" including Weather & Help. After I enabled the weather one, I noticed that I got a new browser too called "Internet Browser." I don't know if there is any correlation bettwen the Push services and that new browser. Any thoughts?
When I open the Internet Browser, it takes me to a Cingular page that says this is an HTML browser. Enter a web address to start surfing (or something like that).

Default Weather Push

I am very curious to know what weather reports are pushed if any.

Looks like Cingular had a rough first week getting these things out to their customers, but it may all be falling into place now.

Ahh. Well I subscribed to my weather (Detroit) and it came through this morning and again tonight. It shows up as another icon at the top, with a number next to it (just like messages, voicemails, calendar events etc). Very cool

Default How accurate is it?

Do you know the source? and what do you mean it shows up as another icon at the top. You mean in the message list?

Default Circle generally means web page link

Did you know you can save a web page link to the message list. Go to a web page and then click the trackwheel and choose save page.

OK so if its a link, and it's not saved offline, then its only usefull if you are in the coverage area. Be curious to see the picture of the data it provides. Thanks.

I did know that actually. The PUSH messages don't show up in the message list though, it added a shortcut/info icon in the APplications folder for weather.

Default So is it a standalone app or just a web page link?

When you hit the icon, I assume it opens the browser and takes you to a weather page. What page is it?

One place to find the help page is go to the picture application and then select, Download Images. You can also find games and ringtones etc.

The icon it pushes to your home page represents the current local conditions- Rain, Sun, Clouds, a Moon, etc. and when you highlight it, it puts the temp in def-F and deg-C in the status bar at the bottom of the display.

If you click the icon, it launches the html browser and takes you to a pretty cool animated 5-day forecast. There is also a Browser Channel added to the bookmarks.

The service provider is Accuweather and they have added links on that page for more wether, etc.

Default So how accurate do you judge it to be?

It only pushes at 3:36AM and 3:36PM for me on the west coast.

I have a premium subscription to Accuweather anyway to get ad-free satellite & radar information and long loops (for mountain activities mostly). They play great on the 8700c.

Accuracy? No better than any other! The 5-day is good for trends. The current conditions are what they are.

The Cingular home page in the browser has a link to local weather from The Weather Channel - works perfect with EDGE!

Go to mobile.blackberry.com, <b>using the INTERNET browser on your BlackBerry</b>. Select "Extras", then "Push Services." If you are currently subscribed to Push Weather, you will have an option to "Delete" the Push Weather Service. That will remove the push service. To remove the icon that gets pushed to your device's homescreen, go to the Internet Browser, bring up the options menu, expand the 'Channels' folder, select the Push Channel, click the trackwheel, and select 'Delete' from the Options presented.
