    I need some help with getting my GPS on my Blackberry Tour working

    When I launch the GPS app on my Blackberry Tour, it always says Acquiring Satellites!

    How do I fix this !

    Make sure the GPS is turned on by going to options -> advanced options -> GPS and make sure GPS Service is set to Location ON. If it is on then I have no idea why it won't aquire a signal. Mine aquires one rather quickly, within 10-15 seconds if i'm outdoors.

    I've heard the GPS app doesn't work on nTelos network.

    What network (Carrier) are you on?
