Finally fixed the problem. It was the access to Internet and phone on Google now that was doing it. But I'm not sure why.

Most probably need to change GPS antenna, if your handy you be able to do it yourself, otherwise take it to a repair shop.

Thanks

I read somewhere that tightening screws on back could help and it worked. Apparantly that puts some pressure on the antenna

My wife's android  (s4) is completely full even after deleting everything possible. It's so full it hasn't been syncing Enel and contacts in months.  I want to reset the phone to try to free up some memory but I need to Back up or sync get contacts before doing that.  Any suggestions how?

are you deleting stuff on the external sd card while the internal memory is where more memory is needed? if so try deleting a app that you use least see if it helps.

For a long time now my emails have not been push syncing even though it's set to. When I go to sync settings it says Google sync is currently experiencing problem and will return shortly. It's been saying that for days. Tried deleting the account and resetting up still has same problem. Any ideas?

My phone says my micro sd card is corrupt, and it won't sync with my phone. To fix it, it tells me to format it, but all my information is on it! What can I do?
It's a Sandusky eco in case that makes a difference. I didn't try to see if it can be read on a computer but it will be a massive pain to backup before formatting it, and I had all my apps syncing information from it.

Try connecting the memory card to a computer, and copy all the info.

Your best option would be to copy the info to a computer (if possible), format the card, and then restore the information to the card. Except if your card went dead, then you got a problem.
