    Default Can't Get Into Location Settings

    IPhone 4S iOS 6
    As of last night, I can't get into my Location Settings. The screen takes me right back to my home screen.
    Also, my battery started draining rapidly.
    I did load the CVS update last night but remove it thinking it was the problem but no-go.
    Anyone else.
    Any suggestions?
    TIA

    Try doing the hard reset - power and home button until it reboots... strange, something is messed up...

    Default Can't Get Into Location Settings

    Try turning the phone completely off and waiting 60 seconds. Afterwards, turn it back on and then go to Settings / Privacy / Location Services and see if you're successful. If not, a full reset and restore may be in order. Before that, you can also try resetting your network settings or enabling & disabling airplane mode to see if that clears it up for you.
