    Somehow I cannot change the "Home" location in the Reminders app. When I choose at a location, it shows Current Location, Home, Choose Address.

    However the Home location is some other contact in my address book. How can this be changed or deleted???

    I'm fairly certain that just means whatever address is tagged as home for your contact. It doesn't mean your home. It means theirs.

    Nope. Its a fixed location you setup the first time you setup Reminder locations. Problem is I accidently chose the wrong one - now I cannot remove or change it. It shows Home for someone else's address.

    I have no idea. I didn't setup anything the first time I used it.....it just had my Home address listed.

    Ok, I notice that MY name in my contacts has my address.

    If I change it in my contacts......it changes in the reminders app.

    Now how it know that contact is me.....maybe because my Apple ID or iCloud ID is one of the email addresses?

    I have the same issue. It shows my "Work" as my current location.

    Interesting. Wonder how I can change it??? It clearly must have some setting to reset or delete it but I cannot find it.

    Reminders Location Feature Not Available

    On my 3gs, the Location feature does not exist. Is this an iPhone4S feature only. (Also doesn't work on my iPad2 wi-fi model).

    Not sure why but it works on my iPhone 4. Only works on GPS enabled devices and with reminders set under Settings->Location Services.

    Resolved

    Ok I found the fix. Under Settings->Mail,Contacts,Calendars scroll down to Contacts and set the My Info to the contact (in my case my name with Home address) you want.

    This now shows the Home location in Reminders with that info!!!


    YIPPIE!!!!

    Same here. No Reminders settings in Location Services, nor can I use such a thing when setting a reminder. iPhone 4 (and above only I guess)
