    Are you outside with a clear view of the sky? GPS generally does not work indoors. If you still can't get a signal sending it in for repair is probably the next step.

    I recently had the same problem--searched for answers in this forum. Found solution: turn off phone, remove battery, wait 30 seconds, reinstall battery, turn on phone.
    GPS then found.

    Get GPS Status and use its tools to clear the aGPS cache. That has always solved GPS fix issues with my Droid, FWIW.

    would this be the first time you're using GPS?

    You really have to be in a clear area to get that signal, but once you do it should be fine inside (at least mine is.)
