    I read some other posts about this (I don't use foursquare). It seems like people were 'cheating' by checking into places they weren't at so foursquare put in some 'fix' to stop this and now a lot of people are reporting the same thing you are. Seems like they need to do some more tweaking.

    If your friend hasn't updated to the newer version that could explain why his is working better. Since you just downloaded you have the 'fixed' one.

    Occasionally after I do a battery pull and I attempt to log into Foursquare it will start like normal but when I go to check in it'll tell me "Can't find your current location so we pulled up your last one." So what I do is exit out completely, go into "maps" and "start gps navigation." Once it starts working stop it then go back into Foursquare to "check in." It has yet NOT to work for me. The app then finds my location everytime.

    I have the same issues as well. I can be at the other end of the city and it will still show my last known location. I try manually check in and it says I'm too far away even though I'm inside the place. Pretty frustrating sometimes

    Yup, Im having the same problems as well. It keeps saying location not found. I've tried it all over different parts of the city. And nothing! Even searching shows up with nothing.

    Same here on my 9900. I did not have this problem with my bold 9000. Suddenly I need to start maps before foursquare can read my GPS info. Why is this happening? I have pretty much stopped using foursquare because it's a bit of a pain.

    Maps is slow to find my location also. Seriously, if a check-in is going to take more than 30 seconds... those imaginary badges just aren't worth it.

    Blackberry and Foursqaure (and quite possibly service provider) please get together to fix this issue.
