Default Problem with my GPS Feature

Please Login to Remove!

I'm trying to get my BB Pearl 8130 BlackBerry Maps GPS to work on my phone. I have AllTel for my service and the OS is v4.3.0.81. Everytime I want to use the GPS feature, I have to take the battery out, wait a few seconds, put the battery back in, wait for 3-6 minutes for the phone to boot back up and HOPE the GPS starts working. Often I need to do this proceedure 3 or 4 times before it gets off of the "Searching for Satalite" message. I have been on the phone with AllTel suport MANY times and they just tell me to take the battery out, but it is getting to be a pain in the arse. Anyone have any suggestions?
