    Took me awhile to figure if you weren't telling people to quit asking. :)

    No, there's not. If you turn on location services, then you won't get that message, but I assume you want it off.

    i thought each app asked twice. after that it assumes your approval.

    WOW.. that was awsome... I was betting this was going to be someone torqued off about people asking when AT&T was going to support MMS on the iPhone!

    Is that how it works? I could of sworn I've approved it every single time when I open apps....maybe my iPhone is "special".

    No, that's not true. If you have location services turned off, and then you open an app that requires location services, it asks if you want to turn it on and then brings you into settings. Essentially, you turn it on for everything after that. If you want it off, you have ot go back to settings.

    Sorry aggie, that's incorrect. Every app asks twice if it can use your current location if LS is turned on. If you say yes twice or you say no twice. The OP didn't specify if he had LS on or off. It almost sounds like he has it off, but being as how I've always had mine on, I'm not sure if it continues to ask if you want yo turn LS on every time you open an app.

    On the contrary, I want my 3GS to ask me if I want photo location services turned back on.

    I must have denied it when I first got the phone (out of excitement :)), and now I'm stuck with no geotagging...

    You can reset the warnings under 'settings - General - reset - reset location warnings'. Maybe this will help.

    I just did this again, to make sure I wasn't losing my mind. With LS off and if you go into Google Maps, it does what I said above.

    Not sure if you are jailbroken but if you are, there's an app on Cydia that lets you customize which alert boxes you want to block. It's called Popup Blocker.
