hi I just got my HTC Eris and I was wondering if their any tips you guys can give me? I also have a few questions, the 1st is on my homescreen my clock has the weather widget on the bottom but my current city is a city 2 hours away. My city is not listed in the city and when I try to find my location it doesnt work until i move the pin. And when it does it gets my city but I can't set it as my current. Any help?

2nd Battery help I downloaded the ATK but i just don't know how to use it. Any help?

Thanks for the help.

Unfortunately, this stock HTC app/widget only has a very limited list of available cities - but it shouldn't keep you from using GPS for determining your location. If GPS isn't on, go to Settings/My Location and click Enable GPS Satellites. If that doesn't work - it may be a problem with the app's database, but as far as I know, it uses weather data from Accuweather.com - which I am pretty sure has every city's weather data available.

The ATK is an OK app, but not very user friendly for 1st timers. I am an advanced user and still use the good ol' "TasKiller" app. I would search and download that one - much easier and they update it a lot!

If you press the weather widget it should allow you to add your city or go to the clock ans add your city then select it for current city. I have mine showing the correct city now.

When I first got my Eris, I had the same problem with the weather widget. After a week of use, it began showing the correct location. On LI, the towns are on top of each other and it works great. It may just need a few days to calibrate.
