LTE was just turned on in Akron OH and outlying areas. First I have to say AT&T's LTE R O C K S. My Skyrocket gets 30 mb/s down and 11 mb/s up. That is insane!!!
What I have seen however is location services in apps or the internet browser no longer work while in an LTE area.
These are like if you browse to WalMart.com and try to locate a WalMart using the 'locate me' feature. This doesn't use GPS but tower location to determine where you are. Or apps like Fandango to locate a movie theater near you. When you try to use this, after a moment you are told your location cannot be found. Also if you goto Google.com, Google locates your location using tower location. This no longer works either.
As soon as I am back in a HSPA+ area, all is well and location services work again.
Has anyone seen this. My co-worker with the same phone has seen the same thing too.
