    Hi all,

    I just bought a new S4 in Hong Kong. Before I had an S3 which I got with my subscription with 3 in Austria. I'm still in Hong Kong at the moment and everything is working fine. I have one question that I can't seem to find an answer to.

    While you're roaming you can see 2 clocks on your lock screen, one showing the local time of where you are and one showing the time at home. My S3 would automatically show the time in Austria and the local time.
    My new phone seems to recognize that I'm roaming (I am using my Austrian sim card after all) but it does not seem to know where 'home' is. I have not been able to find where I can set this.
    Just FYI, it's not in Settings > More > Location services > My places.. I've already set this to Austria but it makes no difference.

    Anyone who can help?

    Cheers,

    Tom

    Welcome to the forums!
    Could you tell us what app you are trying to use that this is an issue?

    That setting you went to is for select personalization settings and has nothing to do with the clocks . I would check the basic clock settings and see if you can add/modify cities that affect it. Since the device hasn't been "home" yet, it may not have stored the relevant information from the home network. I don't roam so I didn't even know that was a feature or where else to begin looking.

    Go to Settings, My Device, Lock Screen, Lock Screen Widgets and select Dual Clock. There you have the option to set your home city

    Like Darnell said, this is a lockscreen-clock-specific setting, so it won't affect anything else but the "Home" set for that widget.
