    Hi:

    Is there any way to stop the Weather Chanel from broadcasting alerts. In San Francisco, wind and rain, constitute alerts. So this week there's a new alert every hour or two. I know it's raining and I know it's windy. It seems to be draining the battery.

    I've looked in the menu but I can't figure out how to stop the alerts from waking up my phone all the time. Any suggestions other than uninstalling?

    Thanks,

    Tom

    If you end the task it should stop it
    (Settings>Applications>Running Services... then tap WC and stop it from running)

    Although you stop it if you have the widget running on any of ur home screens and view that screen i believe it starts up again, or if you use the application itself the service will start again.

    Shortcut:
    I use "Advanced Task Manager" widget to end my applications with one tap that's on my home screen, every time i lock/unlock my phone to free up memory and make my phone run smoother.

    Hope this helps
