    I'm where I'm supposed to be in Dallas. Hopefully it's just a glitch in your area and will be corrected soon.

    It's very random, plus during the day I work right across the river from Windsor Ontario, Canada. Maybe that has something to do with it. Also my battery life drains a bit more than when i am home on the weekends.

    Location could have something to do with that. Maybe one of the big brain cell people will see this and can pitch in.

    It is an AT&T issue and should correct itself. I have had it show Kirkland, WP7 users had Akron, OH randomly. Apparently it is a location problem on AT&T's end that randomly pops up.

    Doesn't help, but I've seen it happen in the past on Verizon phones. We are in Iowa and my buddies Droid used to place him in Russia every so often. You'd pull up Google Latitude and you'd be like WTF? One time it put me in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico. I left some Google Buzz there. :) I wonder if it's still there.

    Thanks for sharing this... I have been uninstalling weather apps etc. trying to figure out what the deal is. Hopefully they will fix it soon. Mine has said Kirkland all day and I am in Los Angeles. One odd part is maps will show Los Angeles, and then as you are looking at the map, zoom over to Kirkland - totally weird. The weather apps all think I am in Kirkland.
