happy to tell, i intuitively made my yahoo weather window into a list, and swiped r to l, on the city I have been trying to delete for weeks. which showed up a beautiful bright red delete button, hiding there all this time. nothing easier. ha my view shows a "+" under the cities I listed. then just type in the city name and choose which state... duh.

*cough* arrogant much, some of you? I came here from a Google search on how to change the weather location for my three-hour-old iPhone. And, sorry to say, I'm not stupid. Already set up the POP email for the domain I own, for example, but the weather thing threw me. I did see the tiny italicized i, and I was trying to smack it, but nothing was happening. I guess I was just missing---or maybe trying to type with my fingernail, like I used to for greater accuracy on my old Windows Mobile phone, but the iPhone doesn't seem to pick that up at all. That'll be a tough habit to break. Anyway, hate to rain on the judge-y parade here, but did want to say thanks to iClarified for taking the time to answer what is a *seemingly* obvious question.

actually let me rephrase that is there anyway to add cities that are not found in the list?
Chris - July 6, 2008 at 12:23am

LOL, I'm glad I could provide some humor to this site :) But seriously, you would be surprised how many emails I get on how to change the city for the weather. Figured this would be easier then writing a hundred times to press the tiny i.

Iclarified is amazing for tutorials on many complicated procedures involving macs/iphone. But this tutorial is a joke. If someone doesn't know how to change the weather region, then iphone is way too advanced for them. May be there should be a 100-step guide to using an iphone: step 1: How to unpack/open iphone packaging (with photos) step2: How to turn iphone on/off step 3: How to connect iphone to computer... etc etc
