i730 GPS - Takes forever to lock in to a location

Archived from groups: alt.cellular.clearnet,alt.cellular.nextel (More info?)

I have a i730 on the TELUS Mobility Mike network. When I start up the
GPS it takes 15+ minutes for the phone to get any coordinates.

I've tried both standing still in an open field, and driving at 50KM/h
or faster. In either case, my standalone GPS was able to lock in with a
3D lock within 1 minute.

I'm curious if this is typical?

One thought I had, my standalone GPS asks approximately where I am
before it can give me exact coordinates, if I don't give it accurate
enough information it can take 10-15 minutes to correct itself.

With that in mind, is it possible that Nextel broadcasts approximate
locations from the towers, whereas TELUS does not, which could explain
why I can't lock in quickly?

    Are you in Nextel or TELUS territory?

    Note: This equipment has been tested and found
    to comply with the limits for a Class B
    digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the
    FCC Rules. These limits are designed to
    provide reasonable protection against
    harmful interference in a residential
    installation. This equipment generates,
    uses and can radiate radio frequency
    energy and, if not installed and used in
    accordance with the instructions, may

    If this equipment does cause harmful
    interference to radio or television reception,
    which can be determined by turning the
    equipment off and on, the user is encouraged
    to try to correct the interference by one or
    more of the following measures:
    • Reorient or relocate the receiving
    antenna.
    • Increase the separation between the
    equipment and receiver.

    Charging Times
    See your battery and charger to determine the
    appropriate charging time.
    For best results, charge the batteries within the
    temperature range of 50°F to 104°F (10°C to 40°C).
    Prolonged charging is not recommended.

    Battery Use and Maintenance
    • The Motorola Approved Lithium Ion chargers
    provide optimum performance. Other chargers
    may not fully charge the iDEN Lithium Ion battery
    or may yield a reduced number of lifetime charge
    cycles.
    • Extreme temperatures degrade battery
    performance. Do not store the battery where
    temperatures exceed 140°F (60°C) or fall below
    4°F (-20°C).
    • Lithium Ion batteries have a self discharge rate
    and without use, lose about 1% of their charge per
    day.
    • The battery capacity is degraded if the battery is
    stored for long periods while fully charged. If long
    term storage is required, store at half capacity.

    Getting Started
    Activating your Mike Account
    Before you can begin using your i730 handset, you
    need to activate your Subscriber Identity Module
    (SIM) card on The Mike Network. Your SIM card
    holds the information required to enable your handset
    to connect to The Mike Network. It also stores your
    user information, language preference and contact
    list entries.
    • If you purchased your handset through an
    Authorized Mike Network Dealer, your SIM should
    already be active.
    • If you purchased your handset at another location,
    follow the “Getting Activated” instructions in the
    Mike Services User’s Guide.
    Powering On and Off
    The first time you power your handset on, screen

    your SIM PIN. See “Entering the PIN” on page 12.
    Press A under Ok.
    Note: When you receive your handset, the SIM
    PIN is 0000. Change your PIN to prevent
    fraudulent use of the SIM card (see
    “Changing the PIN” on page 12).
    As your handset connects to the network, you will see
    a welcome message and a connecting message.
    When the idle screen appears, the handset is ready
    to use.

    Locating Your SIM Card
    Your SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card is a small
    piece of white plastic located in the SIM card holder
    in the back of your handset, underneath the battery.
    If your SIM card is not in the SIM card holder, it may
    be in the box your handset came in, attached to the
    SIM carrier. If this is the case, carefully detach your
    SIM card from the surrounding plastic and insert it as
    described in “Inserting Your SIM Card” on page 14.
    SIM Card Security
    Your SIM card stores all your Contacts information.
    Since this information is stored on your SIM card, not
    in your handset, you can remove the information by
    removing your SIM card.

    Mike’s Direct Connect
    Service
    There are two ways of communicating over Mike’s
    Direct Connect service:
    • one-to-one using a private call
    • one-to-many in a group call
    Both of these methods are very similar to two-way
    radio, and at a fraction of the cost of traditional
    cellular. Mike’s Direct Connect also offers the Call
    Alert feature, which gives recipients a notice, similar
    to a ringer, that you would like to speak to them.
