    Hi everyone, I have just changed from an HTC Hero to a Galaxy S2. On the Hero there was a widget for 2 clocks, one could be set to home base time and the second picked up local time and location automatically from the cell operator. Does anyone know if this is available on the Galaxy, I do a fair amount of travelling and found it very useful. Thanks in advance

    There is already 2 such widgets loaded on the SGS2 without going to the market. menu, add, widget scroll across a few screen fulls - do you see Analogue dual clock & digital dual clock?

    Once they are on the screen hit which ever clock and set as your home location. Then assuming you have your GPS/Network location service running, when you set the other clock - there is a button for current location - hit that. It sets the clock to where you are. Admittedly it's not automatically changed based on your location, but I'd prefer 2 taps to update instead of sucking the battery down polling your location all the time?
