    Incorrect GPS Location in/on Phone

    I received a hand-me-down Samsung Galaxy s2. I currently reside in Guam, USA. But upon pulling up my location, even with turning on my GPS, it says I'm in Oklahoma on Google Earth and Sky. Please help. I have friends and family asking why I'm on vacation in Wilburton...

    Hahaha!

    Hafa Adai as well, Ollie.

    I tried doing what Paul Gyer suggested: "Clearing the Cache/Data... Uninstalling/Re-installing Maps." It didn't work.

    Also tried D1L777's suggestion by downloading the gps status & toolbox app. I ran it, but it never stopped 'scanning'... (By scanning, I mean the lovely grey circle thingie that looks like an invisible hamster is running in a Tron wheel.)

    I know, my phone is 'special'... and not the good kind.

    Rather basic but does your Sll have a lockon on GPS satellites. Had the same trouble and was because GPS was not locked on to any of the satellites. The little circle in the notification bar will change from blinking to solid when the GPS has achieved lock.
