I experience this problem on both Tmobile and Orange in Portsmouth are you on these networks also?
I've come to the conclusion that this bug is totally random and it works and doesn't work whenever it feels like it.
I am in Luton, and sometimes it displays the weather when I have it set to "current location" and sometimes it doesn't. If I leave it set to current location and move out of the area, it changes location and displays the weather perfectly.
Eg. It hasn't displayed the weather in Luton when I have set it to "current location" for some time. This thread reminded me to check the "current location" setting and it now displays the weather.
I usually set it to Luton manually when the current location feature isn't working in Luton, and I change it to current location when I leave the area.
It's not ideal, but it works for now at least.
My home location is Bromley and current location never works, although the Bromley data is there when you type it in as a location. Weather by current location has worked fine everywhere else for me.
I bought the Beautiful Widgets app for 50p or
I have a thread listing locations that aren't working, which I've sent the link for it to HTC who are looking into it.
Add your locations there.
Well maybe they have finally fixed it as the 3 desires I have now all show weather for Portsmouth. First time ever.
My phone seems to be fixed too, following an over-the-air update yesterday. Now running software no 2.09.405.8, and the weather info shows fine in Reading.
Back to UK and weather here at home. Oh well....
I have had the same problem ever since I got my Desire. I also live in Portsmouth.
So having lost my rag with the standard weather widget I downloaded all the "beautiful widgets" available from the market which includes some nice weather and clock screens.
Now I have Portsmouth being updated every 15mins with all the fancy animation and I also have an accuweather report on rest of the weeks weather ie rainfall, wind, sun, cloud, uv index etc etc.
All works a charm.
Thanks, was just stumbiling around last night trying to remove the clock and weather from the main screen. so simple, yet so far away,,lol.
Snap - mine is now working - At last!!!!
You're very welcome
I've just done this to see if it will reinstate my weather/clock widget full-stop and so far so good. For some reason it never occurred to me, I just moaned that the widget had gone altogether if the phone wasn't connected to t'web or wifi. Let's see if it lasts ...
