BB Curve 8520 keypad slow to respond / GPS poor accuracy

Hiya everyone!

 

I have an 8520 Curve, but the keypad seems very slow to respond.  I have to hold the key down for around 3 seconds before the phone activates.  When it DOES activate, it works ok (apart from the delete key randomly deciding to delete anything I have entered.......!) 

 

Also, the GPS has very poor accuracy.  Previously I had a BB pearl and the GPS was accurate to 3m, but my Curve is only accurate to 1600m! 

 

Any ideas, anyone?

 

Thanks in advance!

On the GPS front at least, the 8520 does not have built in GPS.
