If the NSA tracks me via my HTC phone, they must think I am strange... My location never updated. Ever. I tried removing the cache from News and Weather. Tried using GPS. Tried using WiFi. Nothing seems to work.

Is there a canonical way to re-set the location in Android?

Note: Phone is HTC Sensation XL. I have factory re-set it several time, no change: the first location Weather picks stays as the current one whatever I do. Applications are any weather apps whatsoever. I installed several and none updated their location correctly.

    Eliminate software issues by reinstalling/factory reseting your device. If this does not work, return the device as hardware fault is very likely. – pzkpfw Jul 15 '13 at 8:25

    What's your phone model ? What "location" are you talking about ? Is is that you can't get your location for any application ? Or is it a specific application ? – Matthieu Harlé Jul 15 '13 at 8:26
  • Does Google Maps show the correct location? Does it show the correct approximate location when GPS is turned off? – Dan Hulme Jul 15 '13 at 9:39
  • @DanHulme: Yes, it does whether I use GPS or not. Clearly, with GPS it is more accurate. ^_~ – Sardathrion - against SE abuse Jul 15 '13 at 9:42
