I'd start with a reset - hold the sleep/wake button and home button until the Apple logo appears. If that doesn't work, try a restore and like Clark said a visit to the Genius Bar.MacBook , Mini, Airport Express, iPhone 3G x 2, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
GPS seems to have a lot of problems since 2.0.2. Most of the time it won't work. I had to delete all settings on the phone to get it work (at least to do so as if it works). WikiMe won't use GPS at all since 2.0.2, Maps don't use GPS no matter what I do - Locly seems to work.
I just don't want to Restart/Reset via Restore in iTunes AGAIN since I had to do that last week because it didn't sync any applications.
This seems to be a whole mess. I don't like this. I use Apple products because they actually WORK. At the moment I feel like a Palm or MS-Mobile user...
Backup takes ages
Installing apps takes ages
GPS isn't working properly
Strange "glitches" which only can be "removed" by a complete Restore via iTunes
A lot of "hangs" - no response for inputs for seconds "did I press this button?"
I completely gave up using 3G since it ***** my battery and I can watch the bars go down...
I'm not happy at the moment.

Same issue here since 2.0.2. Yesterday my phone thought I was in Houston, TX for some reason and I'm really in Portland, OR. This phone has been th emost un-Apple like experience I have had in the past 18 years.Various, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
Similar problem here. In comparing to another 3G side by side, my phone will either continue to have the blue "Locate Me" circle run continuously, never finding me, or will take at least twice or three times as long to find me as the other 3G will. Also, the other 3G will be able to (using network towers, not GPS) determine a radius of precision much greater than mine. (The other 3G can narrow to within maybe 50 feet. Mine will have a radius of 500 feet circled. I have NEVER gotten the smaller circle.)
When driving (and when the Maps application is willing to actually work), the GPS is fairly accurate, but has deviated from my actual location by at least a half mile, before turning around and fixing itself.Windows Vista
