    Hi all,

    Has anyone tried to setup these supposed new web signals from a few sites ( i.e accuweather, nytimes... )

    They don't seem very reliable and aren't working as per many people.

    Are we doing anything wrong as i've tried a few and nothing coming up on my BB for over a day now.

    Any ideas?

    I don't know if this is what you're reffing to, but my weather function seems to be working fine. My bold says it is 55 degrees and Overcast....

    I get an error message when trying to set it up:

    "Connection refused push.na.blackberry.com:80"

    Is there a setting I need to adjust?

    I've tried them a few times but nothing, went in again today & clicked on weather & NYT, once I soft reset my BB i now have a NYT Bits icon in my downloads folder but no weather icon.

    When i lcik on NYT Bits it opens my browser to a page on NYT mobile site....not really a push item as i'd expect.

    There's no help guide or how to on Blackberry Site

    I gave up on these a few days after they were announced. It was a good thought, though.

    Me too. The only one I've downloaded is Accuweather, but it's worked from day one. I didn't notice any delay when I transitioned to the Bold. But I must confess that I was rather busy playing with other functions for quite some time. The first time I checked on it all was well

    I subscribed to Accuweather and the icon showed up pretty quickly. I was enjoying it till the next day when the icon stayed on a moon symbol and didn't change till the afternoon. The temps displayed were the same way. When I clicked on the icon and went to the website, the weather was accurate and current but the "Push" never took place til later in the afternoon. That wasn't acceptable so I unsubscribed.

    And yes I did a battery pull to see if that would help updated the information displayed when I moused over the icon. Didn't help.

    I have tried most of the push services offered as "web signals," and none of them reliably update. I noticed that when I pull the battery, they typically update after the 3 minute startup. They seem like a waste of time.

    I hope web signals comes up with something better.
