If I'm not mistaken I get the weather option with the one that states its provided by AccuWeather - is this what everyon eis talking about?

No - that is a push weather program offered on mobile.blackberry.com

This is a 3rd party open source program that grabs information from the Weather Channel.

I like BBWeather much more than the push weather programs. I never found the push programs to update the changing weather often enough. With BBWeather you can choose to poll every 30 minutes if you're expecting a storm to roll in, or just manually update as necessary.

BBWeather can be fussy though. Most of yesterday I was getting the Bad DNS Address error every time I tried to manually update. But today it's working fine.

If you haven’t already you can download bbWeather here:
Over The Air Wireless Link: blackberrytools.sourceforge.net/OverTheAir/bbweather-0.74/BBWeather.jad
[TIP: email this link to your 8800 and select link in the email]

When you open bbWeather for the first time it most likely will give you an error that says: “Error. No Weather Profiles specified”. If you hit the menu button to enter your profiles it will crash and freeze your 8800.

Here’s what to do:
If you’re crashed (frozen) reboot your 8800 (hold the off button down for several seconds or remove and replace the battery).

Follow these instructions exactly:

1. Re-launce bbWeather when you see : “Error. No Weather Profiles specified” DO NOT hit the menu button.
2. Click on the trackball to select ok. DO NOT hit on the menu button.
3. Now click the trackball again… the menu you’re looking for will appear.
4. Select "Options" and add your weather information; Location ID: [your zip], description e.g., [your town, state], select “Disable MDS Proxy”, save.
5. Bada-Bing you should now have bbWeather up and running. Note: at this point you can now use the menu button whenever you want without fear of locking the program up.

-Good luck
Fairly simple. Will this get weather maps too?

No - this is a simple weather program with information fro The Weather Channel. No maps.

I must be a real dummy. I had BBWeather on my 7250 but I can't seem to find it now to upload onto my 8830 I just got from VZW. Can anyone point me to a good site to download this???? THANKS!!!

Default bbweather icon

Thanks for the EXCELLENT instructions which enabled me to get this working.

Now for another mystery...

When I used bbweather on a previous device - probably my 7280 - the "desktop" icon changed depending on the forecast. So one could see what kind of a day it was going to be - sunny, rain, partly cloudy, etc. - without even opening the app.

Am I correct in assuming it doesn't work like that anymore, or on an 8800 anyway? If not, how do I get it to work like that?

Thanks again.

P.S. For the previous poster looking for bbweather, just google it and it will come up all over the place.

I'm getting the tunnel error, but I'm on Tmobile, not Cingular, so the TCP tip won't work for me. Any ideas?

Awesome, that program annoyed me and I knew everyone was using it.

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

EXTREMELY USEFUL!!!

Hi All,
Has anyone got this to work with 02 in the U.K.?
Have stoped it crashing, fixed the tunnel error but now have a malformed url error.
Have profiles set to correct location (UKXX0092)
Have tried TCP settings but not put in an APN address as I was told I didn't need one by O2, just need username and password.
A bit lost now, any ideas please.

TIA
