i am on the rogers network and have a BB 8800. Spend the 20 buck and get pocketday. It is well worth the money and the support is unbelievable.

RIM website (Downloads area) offers free push service for weather that includes all major Canadian Cities, its free, why not get that? I use it on a 8800 in Toronto

Hmmm....

For entering a new city into this weather forecast application, you need an 8-character city code. (The city code is 4 capital letters followed by 4 numbers. Just grab those codes matching this pattern from inside the URL's when viewing weather forecasts at National and Local Weather Forecast, Radar, Map and Report or The Weather Network on your desktop PC, and save the 8 character code into the BBWeather software, and viola.)

The search button, Google and Mark Rejhon are all your friends!

Go to weather.com and look up your city. Go to your city forecast and the URL will have your location code.

For example Vancouvers url = Vancouver Weather Forecast and Conditions British Columbia

So the city code is CAXX0518


..and the code for Toronto is CAXX0504, from the url:
Toronto Weather Forecast and Conditions Ontario
