    I LOVE my new Thunderbolt but I was wondering why the clock always says a different city..one that I've never been to! LOL

    Usually the clock does that when the phone is having an issue trying to accurately determine it's location. If you enable GPS on the phone does this change the symptom?

    Hi there picturecrazed...ditto on the warm messages from the welcoming committee!

    I think you'll find much to love about your thunderbolt, the android platform, and the android forums!! One of those things, however, will probably not be having an all-the-time accurate read on your location on the htc clock/weather widget. :) This works through your google location service - which you should have turned on if you want the location shown - and it is a well known bug across all android phones, not just htc. So, most of the time you'll be seeing your home town or current location...other times you'll wake up somewhere in Asia, Europe, or South Africa! Enjoy the exotic nature of it all I guess....and, fwiw, "they" are continuing to try to get this right.

    All the best as you explore your new toy!!
