    It gives me stuff in SF Area when thats not where I am?

    How do I set my location for doing voice search and getting results 15 -25 miles away not 1000s of miles away?

    thanks

    Bump

    can anyone try a voice search [use magnifying glass] say "best buy" do you get results in CA?

    When I type it into google i get my local results but when voice search it i get CA results

    I dont want to do a Hard reset [thats what htc says to do]

    THANKS!!
