    GPS says I am in New York when I am in Texas , and lost 3G only 1x . ;-)

    Is there that much difference between Texas and New York really?;)j/k

    Sounds you're in a bad signal area because you're only getting 1X. Try going to another nearby area and see if your GPS and signal improve.

    Okay , just turned the GPS back on and it is acting normal again , I did notice that the phone was sluggish , but became snappy once the GPS cleared up .
    Could not run "top" (top in Linux run in a terminal shows running kernel processes) to see what was running , so kind of scary , like a App was hogging the GPS for a few hours .
