    I had a similar issue with an old Trophy. After multiple hard resets, they figured it was a hardware sensor failure. Then oddly, about 12 hours after the last hard reset, everything seemed to work again.

    When was the last time you did a hard reset?

    I'm assuming you were able to receive GPS signal before.

    Today I did a hard reset due to this problem, but the GPS stopped working 2 days ago.

    Try hard resetting multiple times. Even if that doesn't fix it, I'm afraid you have no other option but to turn it to the Nokia care. BTW was your cellular data on or else connected to a working Wi-Fi while you switched on the GPS?

    Did you try resetting it multiple times? Even if that didn't help, you have no other option but to service it

    GPS has nothing to do with cell or WiFi. It is completely different signal. You can turn off cell and WiFi and still get GPS signal.

    You do realize pulling in a broad statement (ignore how vague it is) like this without any backup reasons is going to make you a celebrity over here.

    agps uses cellular / data if it's missing ....

    once acquired it should not need data again for weeks unless there is a large change in geographic location

    I have spent more than 10k rupees on windows phone instead of that i could have purchased cheap android phone. that will also have these basic functions working. windows phone comparing themselves with apple iphone but couldn't have basics ability to workout with initial functions. windows operating is not stable and multitasking, it always crashes out with showing the spinning gear problem and end up with formatting of complete phone memory. i m writing the post just to make other aware about the problems that they will be probably facing after one year.
    if u still don't have any idea then please don't mess up. oki, i have got all the rights to state my experience with this product because i have paid for it.

    Yeah you can post your thoughts and experience here but give some additional info rather than a vague one liner rant.

    Again I could've argued with you that none of my previously owned Windows Phones had an issues with gps. Heck GPS on my Lumia has worked better everytime when compared with iPhones and high-end Androids.
