You can't change it. It comes from wherever you are on your computer, mobile phone, or any other device that you are using at the time. I wish that the Topix Administrators would allow us to change the location manually.

The location changes itself. If I'm on my cell phone it says United States if wifi or 3G is unavailable. When I'm on w-fi it says dyer or Memphis. If I have just traveled it shows whatever cell tower location that my phone was connecting from. My computer shows my ip service location, but not my actual location.

no I have an android. On my internet from my home computer shows the correct location but its my cell phone internet that shows the out of town locations. I've posted before from my cell & it showed somewhere from MS & on somebody elses post on the same thread showed the same location & somebody thought that it was me using a different name so I thought they changed their location 2 where mine was showing from. I also read in another recent thread where a person was telling another person that if they wanted 2 post as 2 different people that they should @ least change their grammer & the way they said things & to also change their location so it wouldn't be so obvious that it was the same person. So I thought by reading that u could change it. I've also signed into topix but my cell still shows up crazy places. I wish I knew how those people got theirs 2 say unknown or united states

You can use a proxy or something like the TOR Browser to make it appear you come from elsewhere.
