    Default Missing 2X4 Calendar Widget on Verizon S5?

    Greetings,
    I recently setup my Verizon S5 along with 2 other S5's for friends/family. The strange thing is this. We all used to use the 2X4 calendar widget in ICS on the Galaxy Nexus.

    The other 2 phones do indeed have a separate widget called 2X4 calendar along with two other larger calendar widgets in a group (4X2 and a larger one).

    However my phone (same model, same carrier) does not have that 2X4 widget although I do have the other calendar group. We are all using the stock (Samsung) calendar app.

    As far as I know that was a stock widget on the Nexus ICS and for some reason does not appear on my phone. None of these phones are rooted and are stock.

    Not the biggest issue in the world but rather curious.

    Any ideas?

    Verizon here.

    Saw a single Widget labeled "Calendar"

    clicked on that and it opened up a new window which shows a 2x4 "today mini" calendar and also a 4x4 "full month" calendar.

    I looked at the mini calendar and didn't like it.

    Brought up the full size calendar and it created a whole new screen just for that one widget. Nice.

    Thanks for the reply. I do have that calendar group of two also.....unfortunately that group has the 4x2 and 4x4 widgets (not the 2X4). So the 4x2 lays out horizontally vs. vertically.

    The 2X4 they have is standalone. If you don't have that one either, perhaps there is some program that adds it that they re-downloaded on their new phones and I did not. But it is not a calendar.

    I, too, was very upset when I had to get a replacement for my Galaxy S5. My scrolling calendar widget had disappeared and I couldn't find one. I FOUND IT! It's a 2x3 but I think it may be what you want. It is adjustable so you can make it take up more or less space as desired. You must first download the Google Calendar App from the Playstore. Once downloaded into your apps, hold down a blank space on any of your screens to bring up the Widgets. It should appear adjacent to the Samsung calendar widgets. Hope this helps.

    TheWeatherChannel app is by far the best one out there.

    download that and use their 2x4 widget.

    the images on it change according to the time of day, and the kind of weather present at your location.

    and it scrolls upward continuously in a very smooth display of all the info you could ever ask for about the weather.

    You are 100% correct! That is the one I eventually found and am using.
