    I was running Beast 0.1 and about 2 days ago my News and Weather widget kept saying it couldn't connect and just gave me that Retry Now option. So this morning I upgraded to the newest BB 0.2.1, and its still doing this. I've cleared the data, removed the widget and force stopped it and cleared the data again. Anyone else having this issue? I'd simply remove it but I don't really know where to get it again since its built into roms these days (I don't TiBu it)

    Everyone seems to have the same problem on the Kangerade Froyo ROM too, including me.

    Mine's hit or miss, too. I think it's the service, not the phone. I hope they fix it soon, as it's my favorite phone feature!

    Mine has been working fine. I just updated Launcher Pro and and re-did my screens and it no longer works. Running NexBeast FRF57 V0.1.1.

    Thought maybe it was a LauncherPro issue, but I put the widget on the default Launcher and it still doesn't work. :(

    This hasnt been working for me either for the last day and a half. Tried on both BB and Kangregade. Many others have been having the issue also....pretty sure its a Google issue.

    i have had the same widget problems with the froyo versions, they worked fine until i powered down the phone and turned it back on. using launcher pro and stock. the same problems with all versions. as soon as i went back to bb 2.1 everything worked great. the problem is not the network. its the os.

    I wonder if preventing it from running upon startup will make a difference?

    think it's the app. The news piece always worked. The temp sometimes appeared sometime did not. Appears at this moment. Even when the temp didn't appear i could always see the 6 day forecast.

    Yeah I wasn't sure about the weather, only the news aspect. I use BeautifulWidgets for my weather, and just run this widget as "News", it must of been on Google's side anyway, glad to hear its working for others too.
