If she has an 8520 she does NOT have GPS. The 8520 is an entry level device with no built in GPS.

As far as your device is concerned, do you have a BlackBerry Data Plan/add? What does it show in the upper right hand corner? edge? GPRS? gprs?

Thanks.

What are you calling GPS? Is your girlfriend seeing location based off cell tower and not true GPS fix? Are you confusing a mapping app with GPS? What do you mean, exactly, when you say GPS?

About EDGE..... What do you see instead?

EDGE on old network but not on current network? But you see GPRS in all caps? Sounds like your current service provider does not do EDGE.

Your new network may not support EDGE.

Doesn't matter the network, the 8520 does not have GPS.
Unless she has a bluetooth GPS dongle.
