    I have a HTC EVO and live in Seattle. Recently I went ot Honolulu and the phone automatically detected my new location and the LARGE date, time, location and weather al reported out local (Honolulu) data.

    Now, I'm back in Seattle and it still reads out Honolulu data...? I powered off /back on.... still got Honolulu info on main screen. I then deleted Honolulu as a "location" in the Weather table...hoping it would pick up Seattle data It now DOES shows current Seattle time, but it 's blank under "My location" and there is no data showing for current weather, location, etc on the LARGE TIME main menu screen for Seattle. Any ideas on how to reset to Seattle data....? :thinking:

    I've had issues with that weather widget too...sometimes removing it and then re-adding it back will help.

    I researched by just googling my question. Viola!!

    If you go into Settings / Location and turn on "Use Wireless networks".... it updated it immediately! I saw in another post to leave this setting off if you are travelling much, so I have now turned it back off... not sure about this part of the recommendation, but at least it now works!! Hope this helps others who have shared the same problem...

    Where is this option? I have been having a problem with mine saying "current location" and if this option fixes that it would be great. Can you give more detail as to where its at?
