    Default Why do I have to "Select city" now?

    Ever since my phone's software updated 2 days ago, most times when I turn the display on I have a window directing me to Select city, options are San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Portland, San Diego or San Jose. This does not appear to be linked to any particular app, they are all in the same time zone, and whether I select a city or exit out of it, the stupid thing comes back again and again. What is causing this and how do I get rid of it?

    Mine does the same thing, but with different city options.

    It sounds almost like you've enabled a weather widget on your Lock screen, and the widget wants to know your locale. If you haven't gone in to the Location services and enabled "Google location services" then it'll have to prompt you every time it wants your locale.

    I think this fixed my "Select City" problem.

    It appears to be tied in with the Dual Clock widget. To my knowledge you can't get rid of a pre-installed widget.

    To keep the Select City from popping up, go to Settings, Display, Page Buddy.

    Turn off Page Buddy.

    I'm not sure of the functions of Page Buddy, but turning it off will keep you sane for now.
