Weather Widget has stopped updating

  • Solved
The weather widget on my Mini 3G has stopped working. For a few days now it will not update. I can add and remove locations, even select new locations from a search. But when selected it just says 'searching' and doesn't get passed this part.

Everything else, internet etc. is working fine.

Maybe it's a problem with the feed from Yahoo. Perhaps they have changed something? If so the weather widget needs an update. Does this happen OTA?

Nope, still not working. My best guess is that Yahoo have changed the server somehow. The widget needs to be updated with the new settings. Apparently this happens automatically???

Same problem on mine in UK. Any chance of a fix for this as it is a very useful feature. Can anyone from Inq let us know if it will get fixed and when.

I remind you all to click 'I have this problem' at the top of this page, if you haven't already. That way they can't ignore it.

This is clearly a widespread problem. Why has no one from INQ responded?

seems to be falling on deaf ears, seems thewy are only interested in flogging the phone and not helping the buyers or people that are on contract with the phone, perhaps they are now working on a new version of the inq phone and cant be bothered to support the older ones!!

Thanks for your patience.
