Unwanted address pins in reminders by location

There are address pins in my reminders app. I don't know how they got there and can't delete them.  They are not Exchange contacts or local contacts on my phone. Any ideas how to get rid of them? I  tried everything.

Location reminders only work if you have cellular iPad. From the user guide.
“On iPad Wi-Fi + Cellular models, Reminders can alert you
when you arrive at or leave a location."
"Be reminded when you arrive at or leave a location. While editing a reminder, tap , then turn on “Remind me at a location.” Tap Location, then choose a location from the list or enter an address. After you define a location, you can drag to change the size of the geofence on the map, which sets the approximate distance at which you’re reminded. You can’t save a location reminder in Outlook or Microsoft Exchange calendars.
Add common locations to your My Info card. When you set a location reminder, locations in the list include addresses from your My Info card in Contacts. Add your work, home, and other favorite addresses to your card for easy access in Reminders.”

  • Reminders app location problem

    I have two addresses setup in my "ME" contact (both on my mac and phone). One is home and one is work.  But there is a THIRD address (with a red pin next to it) on my iphone that shows up when I activate "Location" based reminders.  So there are FOUR options in my list:
    current location
    home
    work
    "Roberts Home" ....at a random address that I have never heard of and that is NOT in my address book. (With the RED PIN) <== I WANT TO DELETE THIS ADDRESS & PIN
    So I neither know HOW this address got here (the lesser problem) or how to GET RID OF IT (the greater problem).
    I thought that all location-based reminders had to be either at a "current location" or in an address in your address book?
    Can anybody help other than suggesting that I reinstall the OS and then rebuilding my phone (instead of restoring from backup to avoid re-adding the offending PIN)? I can't see where this "PIN" might be saved...it doesn't show up on any maps, or bookmarks, or in my address book that I can find.
    Thanks!

    I was having a similar issue. There was a pin at a strange location that it thought was my address (in addition to Home and Work). It turned out that it was due to the Facebook app, which only has my city and state info for my address, and thus it put a pin near the middle of my city and called it my address. I went into Settings -> Facebook and disallowed Contacts to use my FB account. This made the pin disappear in Reminders. It also made the phone not know who I was in the contacts. Fix that by going to Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars -> My Info and re-select yourself.
    I hope this helps! If not Facebook, maybe you have another app linked to your contacts that's causing the erroneous pin.

    I have an I phone 4. When I bought it the google maps app came pre installed. I am in the process of adding thousands of customers into my stock contacts app. Sometimes I want to drop a pin in an exact location on the property. I drop it, assign it to the contact, leave the app, and then come back into the contacts app and click on the address. It then takes me into google maps where I constantly discover that the pin has moved. It often moves off the property of the addresss or building I dropped a pin on. I am trying to solve this. I want that pin to stay in the exact location that I dropped it. Can somebody please help?

    Sorry. There's nothing anyone can do. The current version of the facebook app will not run on 4.2.1. The iPhone 3G won't run anything higher than 4.2.1. You're stuck.
    Maybe it's time to buy yourself a new iPod Touch.

  • Reminders (Using Location)

    I have an iPhone 5s, IOS 7.1.
    In previous versions of IOS 7, using reminders based on location was not working for me. The reminder would not appear.
    I think (going from memory), I had to turn on the Background App Refresh for reminders; however, Reminders is not an option in the Background App Refresh in 7.1. Maybe it was never listed as I am going from memory.
    Does anyone know if Reminders was updated in IOS 7.1? I cannot locate it in the items changed, but not all items are always included.
    Thank you.

    Hi srmsrm,
    Welcome to the Support Communities!
    The article below explains how to use location based Reminders.  The Background App Refresh and Reminders must be turned on for this feature to work.
    iOS: Using Reminders
    https://support.apple.com/kb/HT4970
    Use location-based Reminders
    To use location-based Reminders, you must turn on Location Services and Background App Refresh for Reminders. Location Services alerts you when you leave or arrive at a specific location. If you force Reminders to quit, you may not get these alerts.
    To turn on the settings for location-based Reminders, follow these steps:
    Tap Settings > General > Background App Refresh and turn on Background App Refresh and Reminders.
    Tap Settings > Privacy > Location Services and turn on Location Services and Reminders.
    See these tips for location-based Reminders:
    To set a location, you can use a saved contact location or manually enter an address.
    You can adjust the size of the location alert radius for a reminder.
    Use a specific street address, if possible.
    The location service icon will remain in the status bar until you mark the reminder as complete.
    Location-based Reminders are available on iPhone 4 and later, iPad (4th generation Wi-Fi + Cellular), and iPad mini (Wi-Fi + Cellular).
    Note: Location reminders aren't supported by Exchange accounts.

    Look in your Contacts App and see if the unwanted address is entered there.  If it is, you can delete it there.

  • How to eliminate unwanted addresses in Adressbook

    how can I eliminate unwanted addresses in Addressbook V 4.0.6 ?

    how can I eliminate unwanted addresses in Addressbook V 4.0.6?
    If that's what you really want to do, the answer should be obvious: delete them from the contact in Address Book, the same way you added them.
    But if you're really talking about removing Previous Recipients, that's controlled by Mail, and BDAqua has given you the method to do that.

  • How do you set location based reminders with location restrictions turned on?

    I can set location based reminders with location restrictions turned off, but I want them on. Otherwise if I lost or if somebody stole my iPhone they could just turn off the find my iPhone function. Yet if I have location services restricted to prevent this then location based reminders are unavailable. Any help would be appreciated

  • How do I get permanently rid of unwanted addresses from Mail?

    How do I get permanently rid of unwanted addresses from Mail?

    I don't think there's a way to edit the previous recipients. Not easily, anyway.
    I'd just delete what's wrong and make sure to get it right the next time.

  • What determines the address iCal email reminders are sent from?

    *What determines the address iCal email reminders +are sent from+?*
    On our g4 iMac, running Tiger, my wife has multiple pop3 email accounts. 6 to be exact.
    She only has one address listed in her address book, and that is her own main primary address.
    She recently started using iCal email reminders for reoccurring events. At first she was getting emails from her main address mailed to her main address. Works as planned.
    But recently, she is getting reminders emailed to her main address send from one of her other POP 3 email accounts. This is not desirable. She needs them to come from her main address, the one that is her primary account and is listed in the address book. She is not sure what caused this change or why.
    So the question is, what determines the address the email reminder is sent from and how can you change this to another address.
    THX

    Yes, that's what I thought too.
    There is only one address besides the "APPLE" card in her book, and that is her primary address, and unfortunately, NOT the one her reminders are coming from.

  • TS4000 Why can't I set reminders by location anymore after the newest update?

    Since updating my iOS software in May, I've noticed that I no longer have the option to be reminded of my tasks by location. Is this permanent or is there a new way to use that service? What am I missing?

    Not sure whether it's related to your location or not, but can confirm I can still use reminders by location using the latest software, do you have reminders listed under your location services.

  • Way to update header and address fields to a functional location simultane

    Hi all,
       Can you please help me out in this.
    I used the FM  u201CISU_M_FUNCLOC_CHANGEu201D for changing the Functional data (Including Header and Address data), but this FM will not work for my requirement as it clears the entire data in the transaction and updates the one which i pass. I looked for the BAPI u201CBAPI_FUNCLOC_CHANGEu201D, this is also not working to update the Address fields.
    Please let me know the way i can update the header as well as address fields in a functional location simultaneously.

  • Deleting unwanted addresses

    Whenever I type in an address for a new email, I’m offered a list of matching names from my Address Book and Previous Recipients List. If I go into the Previous Recipients List and delete any address I no longer wish to see in the list (and also check it’s not an address in my Address Book), immediately the deleted address is not now offered as an address for a new email. So far, so good.
    But, if I now quit Mail ( for example, as part of a Restart), the deleted address has returned to the Previous Recipients List and appears once more in the dropdown list of possible matching addresses.
    Very frustrating. How can I reliably delete unwanted addresses? Where am I going wrong?

    Good morning Ernie.
    After taking the precautions you listed, I dragged the MailRecents file to the Desktop (had to key in my log-in password), relaunched Mail and sent an email to my wife (who's in my Address Book, of course) and to a completely new address (not yours, but thanks for the offer). When I opened Previous Recipients, yes both these addresses have now been added to the list – correctly dated and with an Address Book icon for my wife. But I've still got all my pre-2008 email addresses in the list too! Even by consigning the MailRecents file to the Waste Bin I'm still showing all the old addresses. What I'll do now is just manually remove from the list any addresses I don't want to keep.
    I've also checked that the Previous Recipients list maintains its changes after quitting and relaunching Mail.
    Problem solved after two years of irritation. I am grateful. This is my first ever use of Apple Discussions in 27 years of Mac ownership, and it's worked a treat.

  • How do i clear the cloud of unwanted address bood files??

    I am having no luck finding a way to remove unwanted address bood files does anyone have an idea how to do this?

    This is an open page in Firefox just like you have been surfing, only it is Severak pages of all ,the files you have uploaded to another computer. In this case an IPad. You type in the IP address and connect; like to your printer, etc. I even removed Fireox yesterday, rebooted and then re installed Firefox. When I typed in the web address or IP address up came the list of all the files! Really confusing as to how to clear it. Sorry you couldn't help.
