    My lock screen doesn't show the temperature anymore. I fixed it once but can't remember how. I have the current weather screen working, but the actual temp showing for me .
    The menu says I need to have the Samsung weather widget on the home screen. I've tried a dozen weather widgets and none work. I've turned Nova on and off. Grrrrrr

    If it's anything like the Note 4 or S4, it shouldn't matter if you have the widget on the homescreen. If you're trying to get weather on the lock screen, there should be the option in your main phone settings as described in that huge list of steps that you put on there.

    You might need to change the refresh settings in the widget. To do that, install the widget, tap the widget once your city has been set, settings, refresh rate. Remove widget from home screen.

    The actual stock Samsung weather widget. Not any third-party ones that you might have downloaded. You'll need to set your city in the Samsung weather app. Now that Mark mentioned that, I seem to remember it. Haha

    Nope It seems to require the proper widget.

    That strikes me as odd. Have you added that widget to the home screen? That's the widget I was referring to as the stock weather widget.

    If I remember right, you used to be able to add it to the home screen, tap it to set you location, then remove it & still have weather info on the lock screen without the widget on the home screen. That's how it worked on previous Samsung phones anyway.

    If they changed it & now require you to keep the widget after setting it up, that's a crazy step back IMO.

    The one you are looking for is the Samsung Weather widget that would have been installed on the phone when you got it. Add that widget to a homescreen. Once you've done that, ask yourself, "Is this showing my current weather in my location?" If yes, the lockscreen should be able to show your weather (provided that you have that option enabled in the settings screen you posted the screen shot of above.). If no, you likely need to tap the widget to add a city.

    Should have nothing to do with your carrier. Definitely a software thing.
