    Once you've turned GPS on in Settings >> Location then you actually have to use an app that requires GPS. So if you use something like google maps for example, a satalite symbol will apear in the notification bar as it determines your location.

    First of all welcome! :)

    1. What is the problem you are having? What are you trying to Sync? For basic file transfer to your SDcard you just mount the phone as a mass storage device like a USBstick.

    2. To get the widget on your home screen, long press on a blank area then > HTC Widget > Settings > GPS. When enabled GPS isn't active all the time. It will only activate (GPS icon in the status bar at the top) when a program needs to use it such as Google Maps.

    This is how I Sync

    Step 1: Open HTC Sync

    Step 2: Connect phone using supplied lead

    Step 3: When USB Symbol appears on status bar, drag down status window and select the Sync icon

    Step 4: HTC should then take a second or 2 to find your phone

    What Version of windows are you running?
