    Default weather widget not changing citys and cant add new ones

    I just got the razr maxx hd, The weather widget wont change when I go to another city or town. Also when I try to add a new city by zip and city name it wont find it, In fact if I search a city or town it will show up a city in the UK. Is it possible I have a UK version phone? Ort is there another fix.

    Thanks

    Have you tried rebooting the phone? Don't have a MAXX HD, but this fixes the problem on my RAZR M.

    Mine doesn't update based on my location, but I was able to add every city I searched for. I disabled the "by location" part of the weather.

    Can you give one of the town names or zip codes you've tried? It found the local towns and cities I searched for, even my little town. I'll input the town names or zip codes into my phone to see if it works.

    Thanks guys for the help, this fix was the setting in language and input. It was set to UK, I changed to US and rebooted and it works perfectly now. When it was set up the rep must have used UK instead of US.

    Glad you were able to sort it out.

    Still, isn't that widget supposed to update itself based on your location? Mine only detected my location upon first enabling the location settings, but once I went to work it would not update.
    Shorty story: i replaced with HD Widgets which I had bought while on my previous phone.
