Turn on GPS first, as in, enable it however you accustomed to doing that - ignore that it is an endless "searching" loop.

Restart your phone, either by doing a restart (as an ICS power option) or power off - wait - turn on the phone via the power button.

GPS should be on (as remembered from the prior operating state) and lock fairly quickly. Again, not a great solution but it's one proven solution that can work. The hardware is quirky; it is what it is. If GPS truly is a regularly used function that you depend on - get Sprint/Samsung to swap the phone.

Best of luck to you...
I'll give this a try. Thanks.
