  1. Can anyone actually subscribe to the Accuweather Web Signal. I am getting a page error when I try to subscribe.

  2. Yeah that one times out for me to

  3. How do you UNSUBSCRIBE from a Web Signals feed?

  4. Wow that was quick Rory. :) Honestly I have no clue but I assume there is a way…

  5. I want to unsubcribe. I hooked up with one last week and I hate it. I thought upgradeing my OS would get rid of it but NSL.

  6. Tried Accuweather websignal…put in my zip, saw the weather, closed out, no icon or anything… No icon after restart or batterypull. Might take up to 24 hours to show up.

  7. To unsubscribe visit http://mobile.blackberry.com select the Web Signals link and subscribe to another signal. Once you’ve subscribed click the Subscriptions List link. Select the signals you want to unsubscribe from and you’re done.

    to unsubscribe from everything u subscribed too….and this have been in service for ever I dunno why RIM is touting them as new, their just for the most part browser configs…think of “Weather” and “Stocks” on the Bold OS…they just created new ones and slapped a new moniker on them.

  9. @BBtrapped,

    They will start at the same time you subscribed…tomorrow.

  10. @Bla1ze..

    That’s what I figured.

  11. I can’t get rid of this stupid indecison 2008 its not even funny and its getting annoying it like every 10 minutes it pops up with another lame joke.

  12. I fail to see what is so “new” or “hot” about web signals? WeatherEye has done what these do forever; how is this new?

  13. Just thinking of the NY Communist Times makes me want to run to the porcelean throne and give a heave :(
