Help...love the phone but it constantly shows the wrong time and wrong city and state.

By wrong I mean I live north of Dallas,TX. and it is showing that I'm in Fort Lauderdale , Florida??

Cant seem to fix it...a deal breaker if no solution is found.

the HTC clock/weather widget and the phone clock shows the wrong time also.

The settings are the default network determined.

A bug in the time change?

Why don't you try enabling the GPS location to see if it will make a difference?

Tried that didn't work....funny thing is, drove a few miles down the road and it corrected itself.

That's good. My Dinc used to occasionally send me to Africa :)

My TB insists that I live in Boston when I'm in the Midwest.... It fixes on the move but still goes back every morning. Getting pretty annoyed.

Try Beautiful Widgets. It will cost a few bucks but it's worth it.

Exactly the problem ....I use my tb
For my alarm...how reliable can it be if it thinks I'm in another time zone?

I am experiencing this as well. The location services think I am in a tiny town of 400 people 200 miles north of me. My clock is still accurate since it thinks I'm north not east or west but the weather info is all wonky. It happens on beautiful widgets and weatherbug elite as well. As other users have said, it fixes itself on the move, but as soon as it refreshes in a stationary location everything gets thrown off again. Temporarily I have just manually set my location on all of the apps that use it and since I really don't travel more that 20 miles very often its far more accurate that the location 200 miles away that it was reporting.

After using airplane mode, the location reset to Boston. My system is a full hour off again. I'm going manually set Central time until this is resolved.... Too bad.

Had this issue as well. Go to settings, location and make sure you check VZW location services then reboot your phone and see if it keeps the correct location after that. Also use Google's location service too.
