This is a rather weird problem. All day it will be correct but when I get home to connect to the wifi, it will tell me I'm in Las Vegas. That's a 3 hour difference! My first thought was that the network was set up to -8 GMT and everything is set correctly. If I open any time of map or geotagging app, it will correct it. However if I open up the weather app it will put me back in Las Vegas again. Any ideas?
If you're married or have a significant other, it's probably them manipulating your phone to give you the subtle hint that they want to go to Vegas.
Kidding! Some people had this issue not too long after launch. If you took the update today, I believe they may have re-broken something that they fixed from the launch day patch. As frustrating as that can be.
A week and a half ago I had a doctor's appt and everything was fine until I was heading to my car and saw I was "in" San Jose, CA. I had it for a few hours then pulled the battery and it was gone. Weird!!

Lol, the battery pull for these phones is like the reboot of a pc. Don't know why it works and since I am a problem solver I have wasted way too much time trying to figure out the why on many occasions. I have grudgingly come to accept that it's just the way it is but it goes against my nature!

when you do a software reset, the handset still has power in it and thus keeps the flash memory running. if you have something that being a gremlin inside, the power from the battery is keeping it fed and alive..
removing the battery removes ALL power and thus the flash memory will lose its charge and can not retain any temp settings and other nastiness that could be jamming up your device. leave it out for 2-5 minutes and to be sure. reinsert and boom. should be good to go.
this has been happening since the palm and windows mobile days decades ago. also on the RIM handhelds.
Turns out it wasn't the phone at all. A buddy came to the conclusion that my access point was in Las Vegas whenever Google drove by and saved the MAC address. I attempted to flash 3rd party firmware to the WAP but I ended up bricking it so a new one is coming in the mail =D
I have had this happen to me as well but I wasn't on wifi, I was on sprints network. At the time I was in atlanta and my phone said I was in Vancouver Canada. When I opened google maps, it also showed that I was in Vancouver. Weird, but after a couple of battery pulls it didn't do it again.
I live about twenty minutes drive from the eastern/central time zone line. I remember after I rooted and started using Myn's Warm after a couple of days I kept getting an Eastern time zone but weather and city were accurate...should have tried the battery pull!). Tried the old manual time zone setting instead of Auto but if I leave town I'll be an hour behind. Anywho it started the time zone problem again after I flashed SteelH's most recent ROM. I think the only way I originally fixed the time zone issue was to use the odex Warm RLS1. I nandroided my Fresh 4.2.0 and time zone was fixed however Amazon Appstore won't let me log in... I think I'm going back to Warm R547 and I might give Eternity R79 a shot in between. I know the flashing is a problem. Wife, "Are you Messing with your phone AGAIN!"...Me, "Yes"...Wife, "I think I'm going to buy you another phone so I can actually CALL YOU!"
