Support Does you SG2 lock location with just A-GPS?

    My SG2 has problem locating my position when I'm at indoor.
    I noted that while I'm at indoor, it is normal that we can not get GPS signal. And it's where the A-GPS kicks in, locating through cell phone tower.

    So I did a test by disabling the "Use GPS satelites" and keep "Use wireless network" on. As expected, my phone failed to location my position.

    I seems odd to me, since I'm able to location my position in the indoor with an iPhone even though it might be a street off, but at least it can location my rough location. Is the A-GPS in my SG2 not working? Or is there any tweak that I have to make?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hmmm.. this seems odd... My phone has no problem locating me with only 3g OR wi-fi turned on and the GPS turned off. Sure, it may be off by a 100 meters or so now and then, but it finds me rather easily and precisely, wheter i'm indoors or outdoors. As far as i know there is no setting to be tinkered with to get this working. Have you tried just restarting your phone? That can help with the strangest things. :p
