    Default Weather widget problem.

    So for some unknown reason my weather widget now shows "Texas" as my location instead of my city. I live in Houston but for some reason it won't show it on my home screen. Any suggestions. Driving me nuts.

    Apparently the whole state of Texas has the same weather. Didn't you know that?!

    I can't say I've had the issue of showing a state for my weather, but it definitely shows the wrong city sometimes. Usually it's something within a couple of miles at least, but once or twice it shows an entirely random city (it still says current location). A friend of mine with another android phone (not sure which one) had it showing New Orleans I believe (we live in PA) for a while. Seems like a simple refreshing fixes it, and sometimes it just seems like a weak signal can mess it up but will show accurately once you get in an area with a strong signal.

    Have you tired going into

    Then going back and try to refresh your Weather Widget.

    Thanks. Yea I have all of that done on my phone. I guess it might just be I have a weak signal or in a bad location. I have refreshed it and usually fixes it. Just weird lol.
