Tip: How to fix the GPS issue on the T-Mobile Samsung Vibrant
Some of you might have received your T-Mobile Samsung Vibrant this past week and thought, “hmm.. lets test out google maps/navigation” and were disappointed to find that you get an error saying somewhere along the lines of “GPS was unable to find your location.”
i found a solution online, from a user called ‘e-wrecked’, that fixes the GPS issue within five minutes! i used this exact method to fix mine and now mine is working perfectly. so here it is..
1 – Disable “Use Wireless Networks” – Settings / Location & Security
2 – Dial *#*#1472365#*#*
3 – Under “Application settings” Change “Operation Mode” to MS Based
4 – Under “SUPL/CP Settings” Change the SERVER & PORT to supl.google.com and port 7276 [ Do not use www. in front of supl]
5 – REBOOT
6 – Turn back on the “User Wireless Networks”
7 – Done! you now have a working GPS!
if you ever feel the need (i don’t know why you would) to revert back to the old SUPL/CP server here’s what it was at default:
DEFAULT – OPERATION MODE – Standalone
Server – www.spirent-lcs.com
Port – 7275
