Hi all -
I have been in Japan for 2 days now with my unlocked Rogers Bold, running off a rental SIM which was sourced from a Docomo Blackberry. The data services seem to be running about 90% properly after a couple reboots, although the GChat application rejects my password.. yet Gmail accepts it. All other data and email apps work fine.
My biggest issue right now is my GPS. Which apparently does not work AT ALL. I have tried Blackberry Maps, Google Maps and the GPS configuration in Advanced Options to force GPS refresh.. the phone seems unable to track any satellites, anywhere. On the shinkansen yesterday I excused it by maybe moving too fast to get an accurate bootstrap lock on a satellite, but I have been outdoors on foot now and still unable to lock on.
Is this just a 'cold boot' issue, having moved halfway around the world since its last fix, or is it actually a Blackberry software issue? Are there other users with GPS problems on .247?
