a new thing i knew is that google maps find my location if the wifi is on with the mobile network (data plan) but if the data plan is only working, the google maps and blackberry maps can't find my location .

thanks in advance

The 8520 doesn't have GPS.

Then they used Cell tower triangulation.
Working out roughly where you are by checking the cell tower your attached to, and the ones around you.

Well, it could be the device. Do a battery pull.
Or it could be that the towers your currently on can't triangulate, in which case, there's nothing you can do.
