    The 8520 doesn't have a GPS in it, only the 8530. I think if you use GoogleMaps you can still get some help with your location. It will use cell towers to get a fix on where you are, it's not as accurate as a GPS enabled phone, but is better than nothing.

    It still doesnt get my location and it wont work on facebook maps either.
    My friend has the same phone as me & it finds him no problem

    Your friend may have an 8530. It has a GPS receiver. Your 8520 does not.
