    Hello, I have a Nokia Lumia 822 (WP8) and I can not get the Check-In feature to work. It seems to get stuck on the searching screen and then I get a notification that it "Can't Search" and then says "we're having trouble searching for nearby places right now." I get this message all the time. Also when I try to manually enter the location where I and Checking-In, it will not accept the location. Anyone have a solution or having similar issues?

    Exactly the same issues, I tried on my and my wives Lumia 920 and both phones have that Problem. The first time I noticed it was on New Years eve. We both haven't been able to use this feature since.

    Have you been able to resolve this? I have an HTC 8x and this just started happening to me last night.

    I can post status updates from the Me Tile and even Chat but I can't seem to Check In and get the same behavior on my phone as you described.

    It must be a problem with Facebook and not the carrier since I'm on AT&T and you guys on Verizon.

    I just noticed this last night. It could have been going on before that but I never remember to use that feature.

    I have a lumia 800, no facebook account, but a twitter one - the check in works as long as the place i'm checking in to is listed in the 'pick a place' list. if not I am unable a click 'add location' as it is now 'greyed out'!!!

    Does anyone have any ideas, as I am struggling to find any help on the matter from either Microsoft or Nokia.

    (Location services are switched on)

    Thanks in advance.
