acquiring satellites for Garmin Mobile

I am in a trial phase of Garmin Mobile on my Curve 8330, but it won't acquire the satellites. How can you help me?

Thank you for that information. My GPS is turned on, but the Garmin Trial still will not acquire satellites. Any suggestions?

Or - if on Alltel, download & install Telenav...it has a 30 day trial...run it once. Something about doing that seems to make the GPS in Alltel's BBs work with things like Garmin....I also am experimenting with a program called GPSed. It works great, as does Garmin Mobile.

Thanks, I am not Verizon, yet, but it looks like that will happen soon. I am on Altell and I think I'll take the phone back where I bought it and see if they can help me with acquiring the satellites.
