    i just downloaded it and it set "my location" about 3 miles away in a diffrent zip and city???
    any ideas!
    If you have GPS enabled it is pulling the closest weather monitoring site available. 3 miles is not that bad.

    If you typed in your ZIP code you may end up with similiar results!

    Ok I found the "disable comp" and did that. Now when I click on the Weatherbug icon in the download folder it opens in portrait view (only) and the the window is about reporting an issue and the keyboard won't go away. Now what? Would it be easier to solve this issue thru email rather than taking space here on the board? If so, let me know.
    Yes, I had the same problem with the landscape mode not working and the keyboard not going away. Even with numerous battery pulls and reinstalling the software.

    App works good for me so far. It even works in landscape mode without a reboot. I also moved the icon to the main "home" screen as well. Currently I have it set to update once every 30 minutes. I may push that to once a hour or more, depending on how much of a drain on the battery it may impose.

    Also, on another note, I am thinking about purchasing that extended slim line battery by Seidio Online (http://www.seidioonline.com/ProductD...ode=BASI16BBX6), but that's another story all together ;-)

    read this entire thread and didn't see anything...

    installed WB .274, clicked the icon and get nothing... would seem the phone freezes, but I can hold the BB button to view open apps and switch to a diff app. yet, WB is like dead weight to me.

    I've tried disabling compatibility mode, but that does nothing.

    ideas??

    You need to use your BB browser to go to the link. It will install right there on your device. .jad files can only be installed to the BB, not through the computer. copy the link for the download, paste it into an email and send the email to your phone. Then you can easily click the link with your BB ang go straight to the file. Good luck.

    You cant use DM so with files like that its a drag and drop into the phone itself (sometimes works) Best method is emailing or send it through yahoo messenger as file or something like that. Than you run it from the folder or place you put the file on the phone.

    I figured its better to just run it from the phone!!! Thats me though.

    I installed the jad file from this thread. My bb froze after install when I clicked run. I could only hold menu to switch apps. Ran quickpull. When it reset I clicked the weatherbug icon. Same thing. Frozen. After switching apps the phone is unfrozen and the weatherbug icon is unresponsive. It is also still running and unresponsive from the switch app window.
    I am one of the people who saw no download link from OP's link. I had weatherbug installed and then removed around dec 10th. Could there be residual stuff that is disrupting my current installation of weatherbug? Was there no DL link because of a cookie from my previous installation?

    Oh yes I have .75 running btw. Hmm seems I am not alone with this issue.

    this program is still a hog

    is there a way to turn off all updates until you actually start the program?

    Removed. Reset. Reinstalled. This time it prompted to reset to complete install. It didn't ask me that earlier today the first time I installed. Still doesn't run. Same deal. Is there any difference between functionality of bb weatherbug direct and this storm version, assuming I turn off compatibility mode on WB direct?

    You can't turn them off, but you can set it to update every 4 hours instead of the default 30 minutes.

    But I have to ask, if you don't want auto-updated weather, why bother with a weather program? Why not just bookmark one of many weather sites?

    Is this program free or do you have to subscribe to use it. They mention a subscription service on the weatherbug website. What is that for?
