Default Network Location Error!

Hi I need some help! my one is 3 days old and was working fine until yesterday, now it cant seem to pick up my location (despite working fine the other day in the same place). The mobile data is on, wifi is on, GPS is on (anythink I can find for location determination is on), signal is max. But in:
-Locations
-Weather widget
-News and Weather widget
-Facebook
I keep getting "Network error" or "location error" or "Location can not be detected" etc.

I have refreshed, updated apps, turned off mobile network and then turned it back on and restarted phone, but cant seem to get it back.

Any suggestions before I restore factory settings?

Does Maps find you? It could be that there is an issue with whatever database(s) those services poll to translate the data from the device (GPS and/or signal sources) into the name of a place that those services can recognize.

If Maps (or My Tracks, or any other GPS app like GPS Status) cannot locate you/find a GPS signal, then the issue could be the GPS itself. In that case try a factory reset... Keep us posted, hopefully we can get this resolved for you
