For some strange reason, my iPhone 4S and my wife's, too, keeps saying we're in California. We are actually in Florida. Not sure why this is happening. Like for instance, last night I tried to get directions to a local restaurant using my current location and it directed me like I was coming from CA. Also, when my wife makes a post on Facebook, it says her current location under her status update is CA. Is anyone else having this problem? Is there a fix? It's annoying...

I had this problem with my 3G when I was in certain buildings. It kept locating me in Turkey. But I haven't had this issue with my 4.

My Evo loved to tell me I was in Alaska, when I'm really in Washington. Never did figure out why.

One of my friends posted from my couch in NY and her Facebook said somewhere in Kentucky. Seems like it's all messed up.

Wow, that's kinda crazy! How about time, if you set it to Automatically under Settings>General>Date & Time, will it set your time to PST, or leave it at EST?

When I had my 3GS I was in Alabama forever, never even been to that state, fixed itself up. Turn location off and do a hard reset, see if that helps.

Seems like parts of the Sprint network occasionally have some sort of mental breakdown. My old Evo went through a period where it insisted I was in East Africa, yet I never left New Jersey. It appeared that a firmware update set it off, but it just seemed to fix itself one day. The fix was to turn off network time/date. Odd that it wasn't location services causing the problem.
