Does anyone know how to change the current location on the iphone. It says that I'm in one city when I'm really in another.

Mac OS X (10.4.11)

    In reading your post, I can see two possible interpretations of your issue.

    1) Your time-zone is incorrectly set. In this, you can go to Settings > General > Date & Time > Time Zone, then type in your city (or closest major city in your time zone).

    2) You're pressing the "Locate Me" icon in the Maps application (or another app is requesting your location). If this is the issue and you're on the original iPhone, I suspect that you're being located by your WiFi access point which was previously geocoded by SkyHook in another city, and it has been moved to another city. Try updating SkyHooks records directly here: http://skyhookwireless.com/howitworks/submit_ap.php or, turn off your WiFi then try to "Locate Me" again and see if you get different results. If it fails (keeps trying, but never produces a location, then see this thread: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1596432&tstart=0)

    I hope this helps!

    thank you. I submitted my wifi address on skyhook but it said that it'll take a couple of weeks. It really only happens when I'm at home. everywhere else is fine when I travel and I check my location. Thank you again.

    I put my wireless LAN in their system. They just update things remotely right? Because I have my network secured. By the way not to hijack the thread but this is for an ipod touch.
