Stock weather widget not working, Location problems
EVERYTHING works perfectly on this amazing phone, EXCEPT the weather widget.
Basically, I just have the stock one running (giant flip clock with the location and current weather underneath). The time is correct, but it cannot lock down my current location correctly. And now, the weather has disappeared alltogether from the widget. The weird part is, when I pull up google maps, it has me located exactly right (after about a 3 second delay. The circle starts about three blocks away, then zeroes in).
I've tried it with 3g,wireless, gps, all on and off. Also tried trashing then reinstalling the widget several times. The OTHER weird part is, when you actually click on the widget, it says weather update not available for current location, but my secondary location (denver) updates just fine.
The last bit of info...this was all working fine until I did a hard reset (i had loaded old contacts, linked some profiles wrong, etc etc, so just decided to start fresh), but since then it has ceased working.
Feeling VERY hero-esue in the weather widget regard unfortunately
Everything else works perfectly, and I love this PHONE>
And yes, I realize I can download a different weather widget, but I really like the look of the stock one.
cheers and thanks

I'm having the same issue. Sitting in my house I have got about 5 or 6 different cities to show up on the weather widget, some over 10 miles away.
My girlfriend also got her EVO the same time as me and another issue we saw was our screens showing the same city, but having different weather conditions and different high and low temps.

Do any of you guys have Airaves to correct for poor reception in your house?
Location services does coarse location via cell tower, only using GPS to refine to a specific location. When you use an Airave, your "tower" is not necessarily local to your physical location, it's whatever Sprint data center picks up your traffic - so you can get some crazy coarse fixes.
I'm currently in central Pennsylvania. At my daughter's soccer game this afternoon, my weather widget reflected our correct location. But when we got home in range of the Airave, all of a sudden I see weather for Woodbury Heights, NJ, a 4 hour drive away.

Still having problems. Now, the main widget doesn't even display the weather, period. Just the giant clock, then underneath it is the city about 5 miles away from me.
Frustration Bump haha.
PS - took the phone out golfing with me today, and got some WONDERFUL shots of spring valley. The camera (imo) is excellent with only some minor adjustments.
Anywho, help with the clock/weather widget would be most appreciated

Everything is set fine for me under Date & Time Settings and it refuses to show the proper city I am in even when I manually refresh it. Also what I found funny last night was when I went to hook it to my charger before bed at 11:30PM it stated that the current weather outside was Sunny. Now if I lived in Alaska where the majority of the day (including the night) is Sunny that would be one thing, but I live in Metro Detroit.
If you're asking about the weather location/time widget, when I reinstall it (with auto location on), it asks me to select a city. That's the only area I see a "current" location option. When I choose it, it comes up with the city five miles away from me.
Does that clear it up?
