    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?

  2. Thank you sooooo much - while I'm presently living in Ecuador (with a Galaxy 2 Note I bought used in Thailand), I'm from the U.S. and that Celsius thing was driving me NUTS! Your instructions are spot on!
