For the benefit of anyone else whose "My Location" weather is not working, here is more that I have learned:

Yesterday, I drove around Montgomery, trying to pick up 3G signals. They are few and far between and very ephemeral when found. I found a spot with 3G service, where I could pull off the road and safely surf. I called up the weather page, switched to "My Location," and updated. Sure enough, the words "My Location" changed to "Montgomery," and the weather updated correctly.

This morning, at home, with 1X service, I repeated the experiment. "Montgomery" changed to my location, and the weather screwed up immediately.

Verizon either needs to take action to ensure that their 1X subsystem correctly provides location services or hastens the update of towers as a result of the Alltel merger.

Are you listening Verizon?
