Default Use Wireless Networks question

Before I got Vibrant I had a G1 and with just the Use wireless networks option checked It would find my location pretty well. Now with the vibrant with that option checked it shows me in a city I was in earlier in the day which is like 10 miles away. Do you guys have this problem? GPS is turned off also. thanks

On my Behold II, Use Wireless Locations had me listed somewhere in middle California.


I live on the Gulf Coast :-P


The Vibrant at least gets me within 25 miles, now, using Wireless Locations.

I gave up on that feature a LONG time ago, and only use it to suppliment the GPS ;->
