Phone says wife is in India, she's really in Texas
Strange occurrence, my wife's HTC clock widget is indicating her current time and location as Hyderabad, India. Trust me we have never been there. I removed the widget and reinstalled. I unchecked the automatic setting in Date & Time menu and selected Central Time Zone, now the time in the very top right corner of the status bar is correct but the HTC widget time is wrong. When I click on the HTC clock, under World Clock it shows Current - Hyderabad, Home - Houston.
Has anyone seen this before.

It's just a glitch with the weather/loction service that HTC uses. Nothing to be alarmed about and it will eventually correct itself.
But for the life of me though I can't figure out how to get the EVO to print money and then fly me to that island mentioned....

I went to a Sprint store yesterday, and they told me when Sprint updates their towers this happens to almost everyone. According to them, its Not an HTC issue but a Sprint Issue that Sprint will have to fix. This may or may not be the case in your area, but it was here. BTW this only started happening to me after the latest update.

I believe I figured out how to eliminate the issue.....turn off all sync setting for the widget. I also went into setting/accounts&SYNC/ uncheck sync weather. Next restart phone....reapply all sync options in the widget as well as the settings/account&sync....after completed restart phone....so far so good...problem corrected

Ever since the update, I have been having problems with GPS locating me. The weather app had me in Romania or somewhere close. I'm in N. CA. Or it couldn't locate me at all. Everytime I tap refresh, it's different. Maps has me about 20 miles away.
If I turn off 'Use wireless networks' in Menu, Settings, Location, GPS works. Turn it back on and I can repeat the troubles.

I also ran into time zone problems on both of my android phones. My Samsung transform suddenly gave a location in Brasil instead of Pacific time. I was able to correct this by resetting the time zone manually, an option on the Transform. When my LG Optimus S put me in a time zone 11 hours ahead I thought I could also reset the time zone like in the Transform. Unfortunately, the Optimus does not allow this option to manually change time zones like the Transform. I discussed this with Sprint and they are looking into it.
Since Sprint does not appear to have a fix for the problem, I did some investigating. About a month ago, i had Sprint send me an Air Rave signal booster because the phone signal inside my house is marginal. This has worked great in increasing signal strength from 0 to 1 bars before to 5 to 6 bars after.
I also noticed that my time zone problem corrected itself when I left the house and reappeared when I returned home. I suspected it could be the Air Rave, and I searched the net only to find that this was a problem that has also been experienced by other Air Rave users. I contacted Air Rave support and they confirmed that this has been an issue with other users and that they are working on it. I decided to do my own test, unplugged the Air Rave, and my time zone returned to Pacific time. When I replugged the Air Rave, my phone returned to being 11 hours ahead.
So as it stands, my clock, calendar, appointments, alarms, etc are all screwed up when Air Rave is on, without which I cannot properly make or receive calls inside my house.
If I could manually change my time zone to Pacific time on my Optimus S, I could get around this problem. Is there any way to do this, or do I have to change phones?
