    Without turning on GPS, the phone cannot find my location at all. It doesn't know where I am, so the apps such as weather bug and google map won't work unless I turned on GPS.

    Does anyone have this problem. It can find me after I turned on my GPS. It's like it can't locate the cell tower network. Thanks in advance.

    Go to Settings > Location and Security

    Make sure "Use wireless networks" is checked.

    See if that helps.

    Yes, that's checked. I had an android phone before, so it should just work as it is... not sure why
