    I am new here and have tried searching................no luck. Is it possible on a droid to change where your location is? That is to say if I'm in Cleveland but want (if anyone looks) to look like I'm in Columbus?

    Thanks
    Steve

    You could do it on a WinMo phone, via a registry change...I'm sure it could be done on Android, if you had root access.

    Now before you think I`m being judgemental,I feel very worried about passing this information on as it maybe, being used for bad not good, I`m sorry but I do not want to be involved, if you don`t want to be tracked just turn your GPS off but as for showing another location,if you have broken up what does it matter where you are unless of course your not meant to be in certain areas

    No doubt, but the "true" location can still be found via cellular positioning, so either way, the OP would be "found".

    That's pretty general location though. But yeah he can't mask what city he is in.

    The only way to cloak your location completely is turning it to Airplane Mode (to disconnect it from the network completely) or turning it off. Verizon still knows where you are as long as you are connected to their network.
