*** PlayStation Vita FAQ: How to get NEAR to work (REQUEST STICKY) ***

#51SilentHawk29Posted 12/9/2012 12:42:12 PM
My issue is odd. I did everything in the OP but it still lists me living in Thornton, CO when I live in Texas. It's strange because Thornton used to be where I lived and had that under my PSN address. I changed it to my current location thinking that was the problem (before I even tried the skyhook thing) but it still lists it as Thornton and I did the skyhook about a week ago.

NEAR registers me as living in a city 3 hours away, and my VITA has never left my livingroom

Well, NEAR now registers that I live where I actually live. But now there's another problem. It keeps telling me to connect to the wifi as it can't detect an internet connection. When I'm logged onto PSN. And can easily look in the store.

I think it requires a PC.
