    1. Hi Roland Playford,
      Thanks for coming.
      I'm so sorry to say that I'm confused with your question. Did you mean the weather widget(on Home screen) display an incorrect city (not the city of your current location) or the weather widget display the right city but with incorrect forecast?

    1. Hi Funkyfresh,
      Thanks for coming.
      FYI, I've tried this step in my S4 and S5, and it worked.
      Simply tapping the weather widget on Home screen, tap the Menu key to select "Settings". Tap "Unit" and then select "°F". Once done, the temp symbol on the weather widget should be displayed in Fahrenheit.
      However, I don't understand with "change the temp setting in the web browser", can you explain me more about it?

    2. The setting is next to the home button. Meaning to the left of home button on your keyboard.
      The setting isn't shown on the widget. Basically hidden.

    3. Hi BulletForThyLover,
      Yes, you're right. After tapping the weather widget in the home screen, the user has to press the Menu key(it's located at the left side of the Home key) first to access the settings menu of the weather widget.

    1. Hi Lavielle Lee,
      Thanks for coming.
      As a note, since I don't have a Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime therefore I can't confirm that this steps will work on your phone. But, since Galaxy Grand Prime uses Android 4.4.2 Kitkat then I assume that the steps to change temperature scale in my S5 with Android 4.4.2 Kitkat should work on your phone. Here's the steps:
      1. Assuming that you have added a city on the weather widget, tap the weather widget.
      2. Tap the three dot icon at the top right corner of the screen and then select "Settings".
      3. Tap "Unit" and then select "°C".
      4. Now, the temperature scale on the weather widget on your home screen will be displayed in Celsius.
