I too have tried all of the same things that you have (Turning Location On, trying the HTML code and the rest). No luck. Note that I have a 7130e on Telus, so it is not just a Verizon issue.
I wrote a Java app using the JDE to query the device capabilities and display the location. It reports "GPS Enabled" but the call to getLocation() just throws a timeout exception after 60 seconds with no coordinates returned.
I have upgraded the device firmware to the latest version 188.8.131.528 (from Sprint) with no changes.
I don't know whether it is:
a) A service book issue (something missing),
b) My provider has disabled it in the provisioning,
c) The device just doesn't support it.
Regardless, I wish RIM would make up their mind whether the 7130e supports GPS or not - references to it are made in numerous locations in the manual, but I don't know of *anyone* who has ever had it working.
