Was out geocaching today with a 9500 (not 9530) where there was no network coverage and I lost GPS as well, I'm aware the CDMA version has been locked in the past but didn't think this was also occurring on the GSM versions.
The same thing happens if you turn the radio off, GPS fails 99% of the time to get a lock.
So is there a GPS bug in .83?
I'm currently downgrading back to the vendor version .78 to see if the problem persists, if so I'll try wiping the phone completely and then if there is still an issue where's the best place to report it?
After downgrading to .78 I noticed a bunch of bugs with it, like dropdowns in the browser not droping down, however as long as you have some kind of network coverage, even SOS only you have working GPS, no signal at all and no GPS.
I'm going to upgrade back to .83 it has less bugs and video camera has a higher res.
