    I don't know if this has been addressed yet so here goes:

    I have an unlocked storm and for as long as I can remember the GPS on this thing never worked for me. Google maps, amaze gps, you name it no luck for me. All my settings are enabled for gps support. Then I tried my friend's storm which is not unlocked and his gps works fine. I even tested google maps and it found his location within seconds.

    Do you guys think that having a cell phone unlocked to be used with any carrier affects the performance of the gps? In other words, does unlocking the phone render the gps useless?

    I kinda feel left out in terms of usability with my storm :17:

    nope. I even hit the BB key to see the options and no luck. I know for my 8820 I see latitude/longitude but not on the Storm.

    unfortunately no.. Should I reinstall the OS? Cause I remember when i was on .75 the gps was non functional and I made sure all the settings were turned on.
