    Phone unable to determine location through 3G network

    Hello there. Just wondering if anyone has had the problem that I'm having right now with my phone. Normally my phone is able to determine my location for apps such as weather, google browser, etc just by having my mobile network turned on. Last week it suddenly stopped working and the only way apps can determine my location is if I turn on WiFi or GPS. Seems like it just lost the ability. I didn't change anything in my settings...
    Any ideas??

    Cell tower positioning is very rough compared to WiFi or GPS positioning. Have you checked to make sure your positioning settings are correct? Sometimes reboots can deactivate positioning features, where you have to manually re-enable them.

    Positioning errors of up to miles can occur. Usually positioning software will say 'within X feet' of whatever. In cases of network based geolocation, it can say '9000 feet' for example.
