Angry 8703e, GPS used to work - stopped working.

Please Login to Remove!

Ok here's the deal, I have two Sprint 8703e's they are both running the same os and are on the same plan but the GPS stopped working on one of them.

I can set them side by side and one will lock onto a gps satellite in less than 30 seconds, the other will say "searching for satellite" until finally saying "can not lock satellite" or something of that nature.

I have tried enabling and disabling location based services, I tried uninstalling and reinstalling bbmaps and the updating the bb OS to 4.2 - on both phones, the one with the working gps still works, the one the gps stopped working on still does not work after the upgrade.

The only difference I can think of is the one the gps stopped working on used to have mapquest navigator (Old, no cost, version of Mapquest Navigator) installed on it, but I can't remember if the gps stopped working right after I uninstalled it or not.

Does anyone kow how I can get it working again???

Well, here's an update - I did a complete wipe and did a factory restore - still does not work.

I even backed up the Blackberry with working gps and restored it onto the blackberry with non working gps and still it doesn't work.

I'm at a loss.
