    Anyone having issues with GPS? I purchased the phone yesterday and it is nice (very fast & the screen is incredible). Unfortunately, I tried to use the GPS today and it took approximatley 60+ seconds to lock. I tried it later in the house and it is having difficulty finding satellites, where my wife's Photon 4G locks within 5 seconds (some case 5 to 7 satellites).


    Please tell me I have a defetive unit. I will not go through another Epic 4G GPS disaster. :(

    GPS has been really fast for me. The times I've tried, I had a lock within 2 seconds while in my car. I just tried it right now from inside about 8 feet from a window, and got a GPS lock within 5 seconds.

    I didn't even give the GPS a second thought. I turned it on to use navigation yesterday and it worked great. No lag, just works like it should.

    How do you know it's having difficulty locking on to satellites?

    I used GPS Test & GPS Status from the Android Market and inside the house (near a window) I could not get one satellite.

    Thanks Everyone - I had a defective phone and the replacement works perfectly. The new unit locks on to Satellites very quickly.

    The new phone locks as quickly as my wife's Photon 4G.

    Consider this Post CLOSED.
