    Alternative GPS fix!

    So it is a lot of people on the forums that are saying they just cant get the GPS on their phone to work. I've also experienced this with my phone and used the following steps.

    1. Go to Menu< Settings<location & Security
    2. Uncheck both Use wireless networks and Use GPS satelites Boxes
    3. Reboot the phone
    4. Goto your dialer press *#1472365#
    A pop up window will appear asking to turn on GPS. Turn it on.
    5. Click the setup button
    6. Click Position Mode
    7. Click Operating Mode
    8. Set to MSAssisted. It seems that Sprint added the options for aGps but by default it is off.
    9. click back arrow once
    10. Click Starting Mode
    11. Set to Cold
    12. Click Back arrow 4 times
    Reboot the phone

    Leave a comment and let us know how it works.

    If you are talking about the GPS isses with the Captivate then let me save you some trouble and tell you right now that none of thoses fixes work well. I had the Captivate and loved it for a short time until I discovered that the GPS is broken. I spent a lot of time messing around with various GPS fixes like the one posted above. There is no fix for the Captivate that works and can bring the GPS to the same level of reliablility as other android phones. Samsung doesn't care either, they are busy working on their next phone...
