    on the google mobile homepage, it says location unavailable. I went to settings and it says use location is on. I have my GPS off but it should be able to get the location from the cell towers.

    Any ideas?

    Go to Setting

    Go to Location and security

    Either Use Wireless Networks or Use GPS satellites needs to be checked to get your location. If both are unchecked then there is no way to get the information even though "use location" is selected in the browser settings.
