    I work in Basking Ridge, NJ and my Sense home screen keeps saying I am in New York. I cannot find where to make the change from a static location to my current location's weather.

    tap the app and then hit menu and then delete I think. Delete new york and it should just use your location.

    It sucks you cant add local, smaller towns to the weather app. It only seems to have the major city's listed.

    I got rid of that one and just downloaded the Weather Channel app. The Sense app wouldn't detect my small town, no problem with the Weather Channel one.

    I live in a small town and mine works ok, and if you can't find the screen to delete NY then I don't know why, it's not too hard to find.

    I don't think you understand, I deleted New York. It deletes and when I go back to the home screen NYC is back up.

    Not sure how to do it - I got my phone at the Verizon store, and they had my location all set up when they gave it to me. I like it though!

    A short while ago I had the following e-mail exchange with a guy here in my office:

    ME: I just picked up my phone to call my wife, and when I woke it up I noticed clouds drifting across the home screen. Why? Because it

    Update: I resolved the issue. I removed the clock and the weather widget from the homes screen and then re-added the widget. When I went to re-add the widget there is a prompt to choose, by location or by city. I chose location and it is now working. Thank you.

    I have something even more annoying. I have the "my location" set up and it won't update automatically.

    I click on it, open the weather, go to settings and select Update Automatically. I then back out - or go back to home screen - and it disables update automatically, automatically. I open the settings back up and it is disabled, I re-enable it, but as soon as I leave that screen it disables it again.

    F'n annoying as all hell. I tried enabling all privacy settings, turned on GPS and 3rd part location, nothing, nothing. I tried removing and reinstalling widget, nothing. Turning phone off and on, nothing.

    What the hell!?

    EDIT: Figured it out. I had the Auto Sync disabled, thinking it would save battery - which it probably will - but I want the auto sync to work.

    i have noticed that if you want to use your current location on the Clock Weather Widget, you need to put on Wireless Networks under the Location tab, then it will work, but still give your problems like above, being not your exact location, but more near the closest cell tower, or major city.... atleast I think.

    HTC has a pre-determined list of cities. If your city is not on that list, you cannot add it to the Weather widget.

    It was the same way on the WM phones by HTC. On the WM phones we had access to the file that contained the list of cities and we are able to manually add our cities to the list.

    When I fist got my Sprint Hero I looked for that list but could not fine it.

    It would be nice if someone can locate that file and write an app that allows use to add cities to the HTC list of cities. Also allow use to run the app WITHOUT rooting our phone.
