so i've been waiting for an answer to using the "Use my location option" but nothing yet. my news and weather widget just sits there. I want it to update automatically. well, it finally happen!!!
here is what i did
no hard reset necessary
1 there are 2 options for gps that need to be checked
settings/location&security/Use wireless networks/agree
settings/privacy/Use my location/agree
i then recycled the widget and soft reset the phone
it works now. done (yes gps must be on)
