verizon locks gps, so how do i unlock it?
question, how does this happen, to unlock the gps so i can use it with BBMaps and other apps?

It should work. I have VERIZON and my gps works great. Didn't have to unlock anything. Check your settings.

Go to option/advanced options/GPS and change from e911 to location on
on both my 2 storms i have location on and search for the sat's and never comes up
it appears i have the locked phones, i got the locations on, google maps works fine with my gps but nothing else works, cant geo tag (this is a the thing i want most)
i guess im just unlucky when it comes to this ive read a lot of people have this same problem and that verizon locks out gps
Actually VZW, in this instance, has done a good job. When the storm was released they did prevent using GPS with google maps but they changed that around. So VZW does not have a lock on GPS. As others have suggested check your GPS settings. If it still doesn't work I would suggest wiping your device and reloading your OS.

everything is setup how it should be i did a full wipe on the storm i went to 5.1-132
it just sits there searching for sat's and does nothing, only gps works is with google maps
any suggestions would be great i dont mind wiping the phone and doing things to get this stupid thing to work lol
