    I had planned on waiting until we got to Vegas to decide which rewards to use. When I logged on on my phone from our room, the majority of the rewards did not show up. It took me a day to figure out that if I disabled the location services on my iPhone, then all of the rewards showed up. Seemed shady to me, and I hadn't read anything on here about it before, so I wanted to make sure everyone knew.

    Just read an article today that the new iPhone tracks daily movement including "learning" your home and work address based on hours spent on location. Seems like no big deal, but then they kicked in that the information is available via subpoena in both divorce and criminal proceedings. Ouch!

    You do know that doing that is against the TOS. People have been banned from MyVEGAS for doing this.

    I did not know that, but at this point, what difference does it make? The reduction in the number and quality of the rewards make playing the game pointless.

    Damn! Sucks for me if I get a divorce. The app will think the local casino is my home or work...lol

    I didn't know that either. But two trips using the app thus far and no issue.

    I keep my location off unless I need directions. It sucks battery and is a little creepy.
