    I was wondering if the weather app that Moto has built in still uses the same amount of battery/data regardless of whether or not it is on the home screen. I took the widget off the home screen and stopped the weather process and it just comes back anyway. So the weather process is still running in the background... I'd like to use the weather widget, but don't want to deal with battery drain. Bad enough my phone has reset itself twice in the last 24 hours... :mad:

    I can't imagine that it would (could be wrong here), but if there is no information put in for the weather widget, zip code/city whatever, then it doesn't really have any information to pull...

    If you're rooted, you can remove the process the starting.

    I was just wondering because i would like an app for weather. I downloaded the weather channel app and it added a background process, so i had 2 weather processes. I removed it after i saw that and have just been using the browser instead...
