    I've a bold 9900. orig it is a Rogers wireless phone. has been unlocked to work on Telus. is working well EXCEPT the gps works verry intermittently. If I switch it off and on b4 I using any gps apps, it will work once. if it goes to sleep or locked, it will stop to work and no satellite can be found. I tried it with the bb hardware test and the result is the same. I got this off Craigslist (with receipt) and had this problem since day one. Do you think this is a hardware or software problem? Many thanks in advance!

    Well, if the TEST shows problems there may be issues. But a question or two. Where are you using it? Inside or in a parking garage? In a very rural area? (no cell towers to help the location) Clear view of sky?

    All location. I tried it outside outside of my place. 2 blocks away. Other side of the city etc no difference. So the gps in the 9900 should not be that bad, right?

    Thanks

    Have you tried using BB Traffic. It provides mapping and direction - it might help you decide if it is working or not (is it available in Canada?)

    Well, it is not evening working in control panel. I have found a way to make it work. If i turn off the gps most of the time and only turn it on when needed. It works most of the time. Very strange.
