GPS not working
Before it is asked, I'm on AllTel. When I got this phone my GPA would work fine. Now when I go into GPS programs it just says searching for satellites or whatever until it gives up. Any help?
First, if you're trying to "Refresh" the GPS indoors that would be your main problem.
If your GPS doesn't work outdoors, then you might want to do a battery pull.
By the way Nice Name
Doesn't work indoors or outdoors, ice pulled the battery with no results. Anyone?

So you went into Options> Advanced Options> GPS, menu key, refresh GPS?
Have you been added onto a BES recently? If so, the IT policy pushed to you by your BES admin will disable the GPS.
The 8130 has no refresh GPS option. One thing that helps though sometimes is opening BB maps start GPS navigation then go to menu and clear cache then close it and try again.~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
Good point, I didn't pay attention to the model he was using. It also helps to go into Options> Advanced Options> Applications, menu key on google maps, or whatever map app you are using, and edit permissions. Make sure you allow it to access your devices internal GPS.
