    I dont know if this is a phone issue or a tmobile issue (or android issue for that matter). I noticed that when I was out and about I would get locations for areas nowhere near me. When I wake the phone it will refresh and geolocate. Yesterday it located me to a foreign country (i assume, because the name was wierd, had hyphens and apostrophes), earlier today it had me on the east coast of florida and I'm on the west coast (tampa). I pulled up the Maps app and the arrow quickly traveled to daytona beach. I didnt get a chance to pull up the map to the other country.

    anyway, is this something that anyone has seen before? Next time I will try to screenshot it.

    I am from Tampa but now I am on the other coast. If your phone is rooted and you have superuser access, download faster fix and set your phone location to North America. If that doesn't do it, try resetting your phone.
