    @ richardfrommatlock: doesnt work for me, im still in china instead of germany and my iphone is showing me china-time! this really *****! what is wrong?

  • richardfrommatlock Level 1 Level 1

    @solala, that could be a slightly different problem, try setting your time zone and time and date manually and see if that makes a difference?

  • JamesfromFrance Level 1 Level 1

    Richard, there is no solution as far as I can see. other than a debug from Apple.

    Turn off your auto time zone preference, and set it to Grenwich, then you'll have the right time unless you travel abroad.

    I think I understand correctly that if you have no 3G in your area the problem will persist untill there is a fix.

    if you are in wifi zone only, and turn off your network and location preferences then your position should be correct.

    If you reboot by turning the phone on and then off again, you will find the location devices will work for a short period even if you have no 3G in your area..

    Hope this helps.

    Please send a message to apple feedback - the page is on the main site if you do a search.. this will help them to move ahead quicker to solve the problem we are all facing.

    well if i change it manually it shows the time and time zone correctly, of course. but if i go to google maps, it still locates me in china, so all the apps using my location are not working right

  • richardfrommatlock Level 1 Level 1

    I agree there is no way to correct it until there is a fix. Apple have just phoned me and asked me to do some more test tonight when I get home. I will e-mail them the results tomorrow.

    Just for the heck of it, try the following......


    Wrong time for zone and daylight savings on new phone...


    Turn airplane mode on and then off, or turn your phone completely off (hold the top button appears, and then slide the slider), then turn it back on again.”


    Another customer did so and worked.   Unknown if this will, but give it a try

  • ChrisHLA Level 1 Level 1


    The iPhone 4S will locate you correct after restart or airplane on / off ... but only for a while.

    Sometimes after minutes, sometimes after hours it will automatically fall back in locating me in China although I'm in Germany.

    My phone had me ini new York yesterday, Beijing this morning.  I now apparently in Mongolia.  None of the fixes have worked for me, so waiting for apple to debug. Will report.

    I have an iPhone4 and based in India. Suddenly my iphone started showing wrong timing. I checked the date and time and figured that I am in LA. I tried to reset the network settings, it worked fine and started showing Indian time for few minutes. Now again I am back in LA. APPLE SUPPORT, PLEASE HELP.

  • iSanz Level 1 Level 1

    Did set alarm to wake up at 7am from India. Woke up at 4am in Shangai. Reset the settings and then I was back to India. Went to office, came back home in India. Had dinner to find that I am now in Denmark.

    What really annoys me is that these discussion forums are bound to be monitored by Apple employees but nobody is shedding any light on the problem, or even letting their customers know that they are at least looking into it. *****!


    Actually these forums are peer policed. There are just a few people who program, make sure it is running, and reply to flags on posts from higher ranked members. This is a knowledge sharing forum, not an Apple support channel.


    If an Apple employee decides to post to these forums in their off the clock time, their avatar will have an Apple logo along side. But this does not mean it is an official reply from Apple.

  • ImCB Level 1 Level 1

    This morning im in spain barcelona, now im at perth australia. Yesterday i was somewhere in the middle east. LoLss. Tried everything from reset all settings to hard restore. Location works fine for like 20mins before travelling around the world. Im not keen to exchange my phone coz in my area, its a 2 weeks wait before replacement comes. I dont mind turning off auto timezone setting. But weather, siri, maps, and some apps are useless if my location is not determine properly. Its affecting so many people yet apple havent give any statements or solution to fix. Im from singapore=(

  • ChrisHLA Level 1 Level 1

    Very annoying issue ... many peoeple affected ... no statement from Apple ... no solution in sight ... shame on you, Apple!

    (or ist it a cyber attack from Samsung ...?)


    So therefore please all report this major location service bug to Apple, in order to make them guys work soon:


    e.g. Apple Product Feedback

    I posted yesterday with issues as well.. but just to clarify.. from reading it seems you're all mostly in Europe or Asia.. I'm in the States in Louisiana and when located at my home it shows me or my daughter and husband about 100 miles from our actual location and I'm on AT&T so it's not just service provider issues.. it HAS to be the 4s... i need this to work i use the find my friends app to know where my family is and they use it for me.  So far it had worked perfectly, and no need for it but I think in an emergency this could pose an issue.. anyone with a teenage child or any child likes the comfort of being able to see where they are this thing scared me to death yesterday because it had her in a swamp near a river when i checked to see if she'd made it home from school... NOT COOL AT ALL!! fix this apple! and for goodness sake at least ACKNOWLEDGE there is an issue and let us know you are working on it!

  • iSanz Level 1 Level 1

    Just to clarify... this is not the issue with iphone 4S

    I am using iphone 4 !


    looks like this is a global problem.


    Something is wrong witht he servers or some serious hacking has been done !


    btw, i am not in copenhagen. Had no plans going there... but yeah... apple took me forcibly
