Where am I? What day is it?

My Cingular Blackjack (Samsung i607) seems determined to keep me in the dark.

First, it never works with the Google Maps “My Location” feature. Here’s all I get:

Google Maps My Location

On top of that, I’m still getting the occasional moment where my cellphone decides it is the future.

This morning my phone briefly thought it was 2009:

Windows Mobile Future

Seems to be related to a cell tower somewhere in the vicinity of Chelsea / Everett – just North of the Tobin bridge.

Am I the only one seeing this?


  1. It seems that Windows Mobile has Cell ID data unaccessible by other programs, which is actually a security measure to prevent you being tracked, unfortunately in the case of Google maps it screws it up. If someone can hack the registry to allow the phone to communicate to google maps then it will be awesome.
