The BBWeather program locks up if you hit the menu button at first.
Remove the battery and reboot the phone.
Now follow these instructions Exactly.
1. Click on BBWeather.
2. When it says error: no weather profiles, etc. Click on the Pearl to select ok. (do not click on the menu button)
3. Now click the Pearl again to get the menu.
4. Select "Options" and add your weather programs.
5. You can now use the menu button whenever you want.
Mine works fine too. I got the same error message, but when I clicked the trackball and selected options, then clicked the option button again and added a zipcode and description, when I saved and exited the menu, I immediately got the weather for the zipcode entered.
It's just like when the 8100 came out...
There are literally dozens of threads on using BBWeather and the 8100. It is exactly the same as the 8800 with respect to having to hit the Pearl/roller before pressing other keys.
Wendycharles - in the General BlackBerry Discussion forum there is link to a whole bunch of free software. Also, using the "search" key would definitely tell you where (and how) to download BBWeather.
