Why does it always show I'm in Texas when I'm not

Hi manny2017, where do you see Texas? Is it on a particular website?
Generally speaking, unless you share your precise location with a website, it is going to guess your location based on your IP address, or information you previously provided.
Your IP address usually is determined by your internet service provider, either a local cell tower, or whatever wi-fi hotspot you are using.
This page has examples of the data sites use to associate locations with IP addresses: https://www.iplocation.net/
Especially when connected to your mobile provider's network these IP based location services can often be wrong. Mobile network providers will shuffle IP addresses to different active users.
