    I am using the HTC weather widget on my home screen. Every so often, when it updates, my location changes to Monrovia, Liberia. This also changes the time on the widget and on the status bar at the top. When I toggle airplane mode on and off, it will correct itself for a time, then go back to Monrovia. I have all 3 location services turned on. Has anyone else experienced or have a fix for this?

    I have heard lots of reports about this problem, is it just the widget giving you the problem? Also have you tried power cycling it?

    I switched to Beautiful Widgets from the market, and no more problems. Weird.

    I went to beautiful widgets and have the same problem. Uninstalled BW and went back to the stock widget just cant get it to take my town. On a side note how do I get a refund for BW I uninstalled it through the market is that all I do or is there something else. It was installed les than an hour.

    just delete the widget then put it back and when you put it back it will ask for your location and then fix it there. And also make sure you location settings are on and GPS and all that
