Question BB 8520 Problem - Just Updated

Please Login to Remove!

So I've just updated my software to 5, and that's great, but when I go Options>Advanced Options>Location Settings, I've lost the 'Refresh' option. This wouldn't be a problem, but I've been trying to get Facebook Places to work, so this doesn't allow me to even try to set it to 'Location On'.

If you have any tips for me, please share them, I'm so stuck!

Thankyou in advance!

Ps. What does 'Device Pull' mean?

I'm pretty sure that you need to have a blackberry that supports GPS, the 8520 doesn't have GPS but has WIFI, correct me if I am wrong

Okay so it doesn't have GPS..
But this still doesn't explain why I've lost the Refresh function /:

Yes, you're right it doesn't have GPS but it does have wi-fi, so that means there's nothing I can do that will get it to work?

as far as I can tell I would say no, the refresh button would be there if you had the GPS I would assume.

I do not understand what has happened to it! I disconnected from bluetooth before the update, and now I can't reconnect to that either. So odd.
