    Not sure if there's anyone still in the forum for this phone, expecially as there've been 2 newer versions of it come out, but thought I'd try...

    Within the last month, my phone has been having problems getting a GPS lock - I use the GPS a lot as I geocache, use various fitness apps for walking motivation, and of course navigation. Searching elsewhere in the forums I found this post ( http://androidforums.com/threads/gp...many-satellites-visible.1060940/#post-7394477 ) that recommending downloading GPS Status & Toolbox to download new files. I tried that and while it takes up to three minutes to lock, it finally does. Then apps like Waze will finally work, but something like Runkeeper never will lock on.

    Is it possible for the GPS to just fail? Is there any way to fix this?

    that app didn't seem to help. Seems like the GPS receiver is dead :-(
