    I've been trying to get it to remind me of something when I leave home or arrive at home. So far, no luck. Anyone have this working? When I set the reminder, the location light comes on, so I know it's tracking where I'm at. It's just not picking up on when I leave or arrive. How far do you have to go before it realizes?

    I'm wondering if it thinks that my house is at a different spot on my street. I've seen some instances where some mapping services say my house is a little further down the road than it really is (they don't pinpoint by address accurately).

    Is there a way to see just where iOS 5 thinks my house is located based off the address?

    I have one friend who has been able to do this successfully- he's on att & has his icloud working.

    I'm on verizon & have not gotten my icloud to work & have the same problem as you.

    I am HOPEFUL that it is just an icloud activation issue- not a verizon/att issue

    I think my iCloud is working fine, because the Photostream is active.

    Anyone else having trouble with location reminders?

    It only works if I turn Wifi on on my iPhone 4. Can you try and let me know as well? I am not sure if that's the case with everyone else.

    I tried one the other day. Set it early in the morning to see how the battery drain went during the day. End of day I get home and nothing. Walk in the house, still nothing. I set the phone down on the entertainment stand and go get some stuff to run out of the house again. Pick the phone up to leave and the notification goes off. I haven't tried it again since though.
