    There should be a sensor test in your phone. (You dial a number on the phone pad - it's different for different manufacturers.) You'll see the barometer. It should indicate your altitude. (GPS would be a better choice, but I don't make those decisions.) If the sensor test isn't showing a change in altitude (especially with a 1,000% error), the sensor is probably shot. (Don't rely on it to be accurate - an oncoming storm will lower the barometric pressure, "lowering your altitude".)
