- I've got an AT&T 8310 with enterprise data plan and running OS v4.5. If I go into Settings\Options\Advanced\GPS, I don't have any coordinates...everything just has zero's.
GPS Data Source: Device GPS
GPS Services: Location ON
Location Aiding: Enabled
Every GPS application (such as google maps) doesn't use the GPS either. I kind of have the feeling that a firewall rule or something blocked use of the GPS...I seem to recall getting a message and I might have accidentally hit deny or something. Where could I check this?
What could be the problem?
Thanks!07-24-08 02:06 PM

- Ok. Must be a new feature in OS 4.5. To answer your permissions question, look in Options/Advanced Options/Applications and find the module that corresponds to your GPS. In my case, I find the app I'm running. Since you aren't running one, I don't know exactly what to tell you to look for, but when you find it, select it and press Menu and you can edit the permissions. Try setting any that are at "deny" to "prompt" or "allow."

- If you're right, you're beyond my help. I have a Verizon 8830 running 22.214.171.124, so I can't replicate your setup and don't have a working internal GPS. When you solve it, be sure to post the solution for the next guys.

Which 4.5 OS do you have loaded? I can say that with 126.96.36.199 my GPS works better than with any of the previous versions. Prior to .52 the refresh option almost always failed to find any satellites, but Telenav worked. With .52, refresh picks up satellites very quick, usually in 10 - 15 seconds.07-24-08 03:17 PM

I'm pretty sure mine works great too, but I believe it's a security setting that isn't in the same place with v4.5. I believe I might have denyed the initial GPS firewall prompt. *sigh*07-24-08 03:41 PM
Does the BES enterprise activation get reset when you wipe? Or does the backup\restore save and properly restore that? The BES admins at my work are sooo slow with getting that setup.07-24-08 04:03 PM
