There may be a quicker way, but this is how I did it:

-Open Google Maps
-Swipe from the left to open the menu
-Touch 'settings'
-Touch 'edit home or work'
-Boom

Anyone that says the HTC One isn't a good phone is not a good employee. I have to assume he was referring to a different phone.

When I went to the T-Mobile store, the guy showed me this and it worked but when you go back to the main page it once again has my last addresses on it. There is no way to wipe it out totally

This guy was excellent and very knowledgeable in comparsion of whom I have dealt with here. I had a HTC sensation when it came out, and that was a good phone. But I forgot all he said about it, but it has functions that aren't as good as the Samsung Galaxy lines.

Just so you know, Google hands all of your data and info to the NSA so if you're comfortable with that then go for it!
If you don't agree with the the federal government having access to all of your personal info, the stay away from android contract phones completely.

What NSA~? Well now and then the news reports of a website that has been hacked into and your personal info taken. I think Goggle was awhile back and now it is Target and Chase bank. You don't know these days of anything. My old phone, HTC didn't do this. I just don't know how to unprogram it not to do this. Otherwise, the phone is great~!
