    On Google Maps, when I press the "my location" button, 90% of the time it says "Waiting for location" and then "Your current location is temporarily unavailable." Never had this problem with the G1.

    Is this happening for anyone else or is it just something wrong with my phone?

    Happens to me only when I'm indoors. When I'm outside, it locks in within a minute.

    Yeah, I've noticed it finds it faster when closer to the window. Still a bit disappointed though.

    Use wifi for indoors if you can. That's what I plan on doing until there is a fix released. I've read that the international version also had some GPS problems and with Samsung releasing updates in Korea, hopefully they will do it here soon and not until all the American variants come out.

    That's good to hear. Do you know how good Samsung are with updating software? I hear Behold 2 owners are getting impatient about not getting Android 2.2 for such a long time.

    Yeah, mine doesn't work well either. Indoors I can't get my location. My G1 didn't have this problem.

    I'm having similar issues too. Either it takes a long time for a lock or I get none at all. I'm hoping come up with a solution soon.
