    I've got a weird problem with _android_ widgets.

    After reboot all widgets (pure calendar + weather + remember the milk) shows the message "loading data" and only way to fix it - delete widget of the home screen and put it back.

    --any suggestions?

    Much discussion about this problem floating around.

    It's an HTC Sense UI issue, where the widgets don't retain their settings and are lost upon a reboot or home restart.

    Some widget devs are now adding a special "Sprint HTC Only" configuration as a workaround, but it has the negative effect of only being allowed to run a single instance of the widget. (though usually not a big deal.)

    I've ditched Sense for Sweeterhome 2 and don't have this particular issue any longer. All widgets work just fine after reboots.

    aha. thank you for the answer.
    i was trying to get rid of HTC Sense UI, but it looks like it is always in memory. At least it shows in task manager even if all defaults are cleared and HTC Sense UI is not default home app.
