    when the gps fix instructions say to reboot, does that mean you can just power on/off with the power button, or do you need to do the thing where you hold down one of the volume buttons and press on the power? and which volume button is it if you need to do that?

    I doubt you even have to reboot. You can notice the changes immediately if you run the test in that menu.

    I believe s/he's referring to the tweaks to the settings that work in approximated positioning data from cell towers and wifi access points.

    Those instructions don't "fix GPS" in any sense of the word. They only lessen the impact by augmenting the positioning data with some other imprecise sources which are only available in densely-populated areas.

    I've been following this GPS thing closely, and although I have not applied any of the online Fixes to my phone yet, many people who have tried them, are reporting that they aren't even a fix. GPS still doesn't work.

    So I wouldn't really call it a "Fix" yet.

    None of the fixes worked for me. Sometimes I get a lock and sometimes not with just "use wireless networks" checked. Everytime I goto google maps, it shows my exact location, but wont get a lock.
