I'm wondering if anyone can help me. I had downloaded the Accuweather Application on my previous phone, the Blackberry Bold 9700 and it worked fantastically. I have just upgraded my phone to a Blackberry Bold 9790 and the application did not transfer over to my new phone when I used the "restore" function on my Blackberry Desktop Software.
So I have searched for the Accuweather application in the Blackberry Application centre and couldn’t find it. So I went online and found the download URL for the application. However when I try and download the application from this site it gives me the message that "this app is not available for this model of phone".
Can anyone suggest how I could get this application (Accuweather) installed on my new phone? It makes no sense that all the other model phones can download this app and my phone can’t.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

When we do take back then the data in media SD card and 3rd party apps not covers under the backup. If, you are changing the device, then you have to re-download the app in newerone.
But may be the app you are talking about is not compatible with the OS vesion of newer handheld that is why it is not showing in appworld as well.
So please wait till newer version of this app will be released by them (Upgardation of 3rd party app is not part of RIM).

If you are saying that Accuweather Application was Installed before your device upgrade and have had all your backup then you can try this :
Connect your device to BB Desktop Software > On desktop Software Click Application > Then you can see all
your Application List before your Upgrade including Accuweather, Select the Application you want to Transfer then
And if your Accuweather apps. is an Paid Apps.and not able to get it then you can look at this Solved Thread :

I don't see the 9790 listed as supported for AccuWeather on the AppWorld list.
You could try another good free weather app... WeatherBug? BeWeather?

That makes sense. Its definitely the fact that the model phone and operating system have not yet been made compatible by "Accuweather" company. I checked on their website and they list the models of compatible BB phones for the mobile app and mine (Bold 9790) is not listed.
Thanks for the help!

Thanks foe the response and assistance.
I found out that the application company has not yet made a compatible version of this app withy the BB Bold 9790 yet. Hence it not being listed under the available apps and on their website they list all the BB phones that are compatible and this phone is not. Hopefully this will change soon.
