    We've recently moved to TN and my Incredible still thinks I'm in VA. All apps, like weather, Poynt, etc., show my old address, even when GPS is turned on. There must be some setting on the phone doing this, but I sure can't find it. Any ideas?

    If you're on Wifi at home, they the problem is that the wifi location hasn't been updated by google yet. I don't think there is a way to do that manually, but I think you CAN report an incorrect location.

    I fixed it by turning off all things under "Settings" "Location" and then turned on "only" GPS. Then the two apps in question acquired the correct position. Then I turned off GPS (don't want it running all the time) and turned "Google Maps" location back on and all seems fine.
