    On a BB 8830. Trying to find satellites for the first time but its timing out before it finds any. Any way to switch the timing. GPS locator is "on"


    Also since this is a US phone (sprint) and I am in Ireland I was going to e-mail Sprint to make sure the phone has been "released". ANy helpful pointeers as to what exactly to ask will be warmly appreciated.

    help with this would be appreciated. I'm on my second storm, and I know of two others in my family and all of us have 0 gps service.

    I've tried many many many different settings, re-installs.

    4 different units and no GPS. Tells me its probably a setting but I also see a lot of people with the problem.

    Any advice?

    What application are you using?

    Some apps will refresh the GPS chip. Others (liek Google Maps) doesn't refresh the connection and it times out.

    Blackberry Maps, Weatherbug, and other assorted apps. All time out, unable to acquire gps lock.

    All 4 units.

    There must be a common denominator.
