    ICS stock weather widget works less than half the time for me (I see others on xda developers forums and other places have also had this difficulty) and it is not related to a malfunction with location services. Perhaps it's not even ICS- or SGN-specific, as it is being discussed here as well

    Happens to me at least once a day, but a tap on it clears it up. I've not tried another widget that does something similar. Not sure if Beautiful Widgets or any of that stuff works properly. I think there is probably a FAR more attractive alternative. Overall it isn't a big deal to me. Like I said, I tap it and it works again.

    I pretty much expect everything that worked on my Thunderbolt to not work on this phone. This is just some of the growing pains that we face as early adopters.

    Actually I have been having this problem on my A855 for a couple of weeks or so, my co-worker on his Nexus S 4g the same. Server side issue I am thinking.

    Thanks for the responses. Seems to be happening less and less to me.

    I installed a different weather app and it does the same thing.

    It's whoever the weather ap reports to. If it's accuweather or whoever. It's not the phone. I got that on my old droid incredible all the time and there's nothing you can do besides going to a different weather provider.

    It's definitely not the phone tho.

    the app uses the weather channel as it's provider. Try a different app that uses someone different so you have a backup.

    I noticed this also. But i thought it was my "network extender". I have two. One for work and one for home. And they always cause it to come up with the wrong location.

    So instead of "Detect my location" I typed in my zip code and it seems to be better. But you guys are saying it's getting better anyway's. I'm going to check "detect my location" again and see what happens.

    Edit: just tried it and it couldn't 'set my location'. So i went back to typing in my zip code. It has been solid for days this way

    My new VZW GNex has the same issue, although it appears to detect the location if on wifi. Previously my t-mo N1 had no problems.

    EDIT: Turned on Google's location services and it works. Duh!

    You could always just look outside when your app fails:p

    I kid, I kid...I've actually noticed myself doing this.....I see it's raining outside, I then check my phone to confirm that it is indeed raining....once my nexus says so, then it must be true.

    I know several people that started having this problem today, must be a server issue.
  14. Mine has been like this for 2 days now. And Google+ is having sync issues. Might be related.

    Working fine for me now. Have you tried clearing cache from the widget?

    After rebooting for unrelated reasons, my weather widget started working, but had been changed to a weather & news widget. After removing and re-creating the widget it was back to working as weather only.
