    When you say no maps, do you mean you don't have a mapping program to run like BB Maps?

    Do you have GPS enabled under Options > Advanced > GPS?

    Do you have a clear line of sight to the sky?

    Is the phone new or refurb?

    Do you have the latest firmware?

    Have you tried a battery pull?

    Have you tried my guide? (link in sig)

    Ye i have no map program and no options, "GPS" says 'device gps', 'Location on','Location ading enabled and everything else is blank. If i try to 'refresh gps' it cant find sats! The phone was bought new as handset only (no contract). My firmware is v4.6.0.144 is that the latest and how would i update it? iv tryed a battery pull too. Iv looked at your guide but i cant download the apps to try it out as im connected to someones random wifi network as im traveling and the downloads timeout its that slow! lol

    You might be able to install bbmaps through the desktop manager software. You could also try to download a different maps program such as google maps or live maps or whatever.

    Apparently the latest is 4.6.0.418

    There are instructions there. You can try to update to it and see if that helps at all.
