    The GPS has stopped working in my Samsung Galaxy S3

    My GPS has saved me plenty of times. It has worked great over the last 1.5 years. Last week I could not get a signal and again yesterday the GPS would not "fix" even after 1 hour of trying. I have searched online and found some solutions but they don't seem to apply to my galaxy s phone. Can anyone help me out with this?

    Hello

    I think it is an NETWORK problem or the GPS software is corrupted by the virus or the GPS settings or changed check of all of this and after that also no use .

    then go for RESET option it is a best way

    For resetting ... Go for MENU -------> SETTINGS ------> PRIVACY ------> FACTORY DATA RESET ....

    After this work done you problem defiantly solved .

    Hello Guest,
    GPS requires a working internet connection like 2g/3g for its usage. There was no signal in your device because the internet connectivity in your area was faulty that time. Move to an area where there is good signal strength and proper network coverage. I am sure that GPS will work as soon as a proper data connection has been established. Thank You.

    no the gps doesn't need wifi that makes no sense, there is no wifi on the highways hence no need for a wifi signal for gps. THIS PROBLEM IS BECOMING VERY IRRITATING TO THE POINT TO WHERE I AM GOING TO RETURN MY PHONE FOR A NEW ONE
