    The weird part about all this is, it only happens to me at work. Here's the crazy part, a co-worker who sits right next to me has a Lumia 900 as well, only on that phone it shows the correct location. My co-worker has not installed the update that Nokia sent out recently.

    So, here's the question to the rest of you that are having this problem:

    Have you installed the latest update?

    I'm glad I am not the only one having this problem. I first noticed this while trying to use 4th & Mayor (Foursquare app) while inside a place. The GPS searched for places near me and everything was in Akron, OH (I'm in Washington, DC!). I switched to maps, nokia maps, and any other service that uses the GPS and they all are affected. 30 minutes later I walked outside and was ready to leave and tried to check in one more time, voila it worked. Im starting to think something is happening from inside buildings, because I never have an issue in the car.

    Still showing Akron when I'm somewhere I can't get a GPS Satellite lock.

    On a related note, has anyone else noticed that their phone loses sat lock a lot when it is down, say, on your center console? Mine is only reliable when I hold it up at window level.

    Same here, My original 900 did not have any issue with the location, but one of the mic went bad so I had to get a replacement and since day one it randomly shows me in Akron

    I am being told today By LC over @NokiaCaresUS that the problem can now be permanently fixed with a restart of the phone.

    I live in Kansas City, MO and this has been an intermittent problem I first noticed in late May or early June. My Amazing Weather live tile shows temp in Akron at times. Had to manually add KC to get correct weather. At other times GPS shows correct location and thus correct weather. Phone restarts don't help.

    Had this issue the morning on a full charge. Rebooted the phone and no issues since. Don't recall having this issue before.

    From the WPcentral blog.

    Update: Nokia just pinged us to let us know they are "...aware of the issue and it has been addressed, but users may need to restart their phones to see the fix take effect." Moreover, this does not seem to be a Lumia 900 issue per se but rather related to AT&T's LTE towers. Evidently some Android users have had this problem too.
    There's same topic in Titan 2 forum.
