    Do you have a custom launcher or stock?

    What happens when you long press on the widget?

    I have a stock launcher and When i press either widget i can check things within the widget but as for dragging them to delete nothing happens! They simply wont move--UNLESS i add a third widget then they will move around the screen but i can only delete the third widget by dragging to trash..

    For most launchers, when you LONG press (press and hold) on a widget, a menu will show up, or a trash can or other options will appear. Yours gives no visual change when you long press?
