    As it says!! My GPS seems to have suddenly decided that I live in Shenzen China. As you can guess that is throwing my calendar and clock completely out.

    Seemed to randomly happen - turning off GPS doesn't seem to make an difference - nor does turning off the phone and restarting.

    Any ideas? Only had the phone for a week and have been hearing horror stories. I hope I am not going to be another one!!

    Please help if you can!

    Thanks for the advice - tried it - but it relocated me 50 miles from the random Chinese town!

    Still love the phone :p

    Time and date is set up fine

    A GPS fix?

    I think all is good - it's never been a problem before and I have used the GPS numerous times.

    Tis strange.

    EDIT: It JUST randomly reset itself. I would like to keep the thread open though in case anyone knows why it happened in the first place - and why the sensible ideas from you guys didn't work

    Have you ever had maps working?

    If not, then you'll need net & GPS on. Go outside and wait for your position to be determined. This can take upto 10 min on the first GPS fix. Next time will be seconds.

    Currently my phone says its location is Changsha China. This only happens when I connect via wifi in my house. After disconnecting wifi, my phone will display the correct location. Does anyone know what's going on?
