-News and Weather widget
I keep getting "Network error" or "location error" or "Location can not be detected" etc.
I have refreshed, updated apps, turned off mobile network and then turned it back on and restarted phone, but cant seem to get it back.
Any suggestions before I restore factory settings?
Does Maps find you? It could be that there is an issue with whatever database(s) those services poll to translate the data from the device (GPS and/or signal sources) into the name of a place that those services can recognize.
If Maps (or My Tracks, or any other GPS app like GPS Status) cannot locate you/find a GPS signal, then the issue could be the GPS itself. In that case try a factory reset... Keep us posted, hopefully we can get this resolved for you
