    Lol, been there - done that. They'll tell you to do a factory reset. I did it twice, didn't make a difference for me. The GPS Doctor fixed my phone, well worth the $1.99 from the market. Good luck.

    I figured the first thing they would have me do is a factory reset so I did that yesterday. So far it hasn't crapped out on me.

    I haven't reconfigured all of my stuff and thought I would do so slowly to see if there's a particular app/config that's interfering.

    WiFi Seemed to help

    I was having this same problem today. The GPS was searching for close to 10 minutes. As I was messing with the phone, I recieved the prompt that tells you that turning on your wifi can enhance your location services. While I do not understand the relationship, I relented and turned on my wifi. The phone immediatley locked on to my location and so far today has continued to do so. I have no idea if this is coincidental or not. As I said before, I do not understand how having wifi on would effect GPS locking, but in this case it seemed to.

    Ok, big question and probably a stupid one... did you have Wi-Fi service when you turned on Wi-Fi? Every time I get that prompt I think it is absurd because I am on the road when I'm using GPS so no Wi-Fi.

    I don't think that's a stupid question. That's the reason I have never turned on my wifi when it prompted me to, I didn't see the logic off it.

    To answer your question, no. At the time, I was driving through a neighborhood, so there were surely networks in range but none that I would connect to.

    Same here, I never acted on that prompt because it made no sense. Wow, that is interesting. I'm going to have to try that the next time I'm out. I wonder what exactly it is that makes that work.

    Well, it's been a. Couple days since the factory reset and I haven't had any GPS issues. We'll see if this keeps up.

    I went to best buy where I guy the phone and the geek squad guy turned on all GPS settings down in three screen shot and note GPS is working fine. I don't jabber to turn all of then on again just stand alone GPS and it works. I winner if it was just engaging something by turning then all on once. Hope it helps others
