    Still having GPS issues. Tried to use GPS fix app, GPS status app. I have been to three metro stores. Been onto Samsung website to try to get support. Unable to find our model. Anybody have a direct link? To Samsung website?

    found this by the way doesn't matter what carrier you are on they are all having the GPS issue.
    Based on a thread at XDA, I did the following:

    1. Turn all GPS related thing OFF
    2. go into google services framework in applications, settings, and clear data
    3. go into maps, delete updates if any and clear data aswell
    4. reboot the phone
    5. Update google maps (very important)
    6.reboot for safe measure
    7. turn on everything in location and services in settings
    8. boot up maps
    9. profit
