    Why does my droid think I'm in Texas City??? My daughter said hers is doing the same thing. That's where the weather widget is giving the forecast for.

    Which weather widget are you using? If it is Beautiful Widgets, change the weather app to accuweather.

    No it was Weather Forecast. I uninstalled and used weatherchannel but I liked the clock that weather forecast had. I may try Beautiful Widgets...idk

    I live in Baninbridge. Beautiful Widgets says I'm in Aurora, which isn't too bad because I do have an Aurora zip code and I'm right on the borderline. But when I put my phone in the Dock it tells me the weather fro Reminderville. Still not too far off but probably 2 miles.

    Hard to say without details. Not all methods of determining your location involve your carrier.

    My daughter is still having the same problem and I still have it occasionally. Just tried the shopper app and it has me in Texas so does Tune in Radio and the weather channel app just gave me an update for poor air quality in La Marque Tx...I live in and I'm sitting in Forest Hill Maryland 1481 miles away.....
