Re: GPS and Bluetooth problems

The 8520 model does not have built-in GPS... it certainly won't work.

Re: GPS and Bluetooth problems

I have had my 8520 for a bit now ,and I'm sory to inform you there is no GPS on the 8520 .The good news is if you go to Google latitude you can get something called triangulation to work within a approximate location beter then nothing I can't help you with bluetooth cause I've had the same proublem it just won't pair. Ive gone to options then blutooth then add device nothing seems to work .
