    I've got an 8830 with built in GPS .. no not on VZW, and yes the GPS does work - but it is extremely intermittent. I can be outside and in one spot I'm easily able to pick up a satellite, but walking a few steps in either direction and the satellite is gone... not to mention while driving - sheesh.

    I was hoping someone with experience regarding the GPS on this model could let me know if there's something I can do to increase the reliability. Anything other than walking around with one arm stretched way up in the air with the other one picking my nose would be good

    You may just have a defective unit. Maybe try exchanging it. Back when I had an 8800, I did not have those issues with GPS.

    I have a Vodafone AU 8310.

    It has Yapp Compass (GPS) added as well as Maps (GPS)

    Compass works faultlessly.

    Maps does not work in two different countries so far. When it does, only for a few moments before it searches for satellites again and fails.
