Hi all

Can any1 give me a clue on how to get my GPS to work as I have tried to use Facebook places and when I click check in I get this message

Your device does not support location services. To use Facebook Places, a device with built-in location services is required

I believe my phone should have this as its a curve 8520 but when I go to options/advance options/GPS to change date source it says none with no option to change

Many thanks smile

PS sorry if I have posted in the wrong place eek

8520 does not have GPS.

That option will remain unavailable and is there in case you ever connect something with GPS to it, i.e. a Bluetooth GPS dongle to use sat nav.

Which BB do you have Sarah?

Your BB could have been picking up a location, very crudely, using any wifi signal?

Unless it is a model which supports GPS i.e. one of the newer ones or the Curve 8900 for example?

That's one of the newer ones with GPS so you will have location services. I haven't had a BB as a personal phone and not as a work one for a few years so I'm not really au fait with them at all.

Nobody is just being a knob. Rather than point out the mistake that has happened to us all, he`d rather ridicule them! And he`s a forum Guardian! God help us!
