    The Xperia Tipo is a new android phone from Sony. GPS is one of the prominent features of this phone. To disable GPS on the phone you need to first tap on Applications from the home screen. There you will be able to find the option called Settings. There you need to scroll and find the option called location services. There you will find the option called GPS. You need to unmark the box against GPS Satellites. This will disable the GPS option on the android phone.

    Hello Guest,
    Yes it is possible to disable the GPS feature in your phone. Just point to Menu>Settings>Location and Security. Disable the "Use GPS Satellites" option by unchecking the box next to it with a single finger tap. That's it. Now, the GPS won't work till the time you enable it again. Thank You. Hope this helps. :-)
