    Infamous GPS taking forever to lock

    I've researched this for what seems like weeks now. I've tried multiple apps, and I've done the clearing of the cache of the maps, framework and reinstalling Google Maps updates with no results. Can anyone please help? I am not rooted.

    I had the same issue as you. My gps on my s3 would not lock. I actually tried 1 app that made it lock on 1 time. But after that one time I couldn't lock on. I have insurance on my phone. So I contacted Verizon and they sent me a certified pre owned s3. Now it locks on within 3-5secs. Just contact Verizon for a replacement. That's what I would do.

    Have you tried GPS Status app ? It makes my devices get a lock in a few seconds, even inside.

    Call Verizon. After they gad me try a few things, they sent me a new (probably refurbished) phone. No issues now.
