Open what? I tried all the apps out there that say it helps you get better GPS location(more accurate) and yes my GPS is turned on and nothing works location is set to on! If there's no simple fix I might just have to do a master/factory reset! (which obviously I don't want to do,because I got to be busy backing up all my info!)
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Open the back (to replace the battery for example) that was the problem with mine. The GPS transponder was getting static, cuz it wasn't properly shielded

so I should try to get a GPS location while my back cover is off? What does the transponder look like?

I was just saying that if u played around with the kishkes of ur phone its very possible u messed it up. That's it. That's what happened to me. Now it cud very well be that that is ur issue. Did it ever work?

Could be ur GPS transponder went the way of all technical appliances eventually. Can u be a little more specific? Does it work in any apps at all?
