    Do you have AGPS enabled? AGPS gets satellite info from cell towers, so that it can get a lock faster. You can check by going into setting>location & security and see if "Enable Assisted GPS" is checked.

    I work in an office. It has a window, but it isn't
    In a house, near some mountains.
    yeah, in location & security just make sure all 3 boxes are checked. it should get a better lock that way.
