    Question 7130e (Verizon) GPS malfeasance

    Advertisement



    I downloaded BB Maps, turned Location On in GPS Services (and show the icon as enabled - up by the power indicator), opened up maps, hit Start GPS, and after about 8 or 9 minutes, receive the following error - "Unable to acquire GPS lock". This has happened when the GPS is sitting completely in the open, with the 'view' of the sky unobstructed. Any ideas why? Thanks in advance!

    Great question. Welcome to the "stacks". We operating the same phone and same company.

    I believe I have read on this forum that Verizon deliberately disables this function ! I have a 7130e with Verizon and get exactly what you say. If you search on the net you can even find a petition page concerning this issue.
