Hi ramkumar

 

This could be related to Cell Site Location services.  Some wireless providers use triangulation with their wireless towers to provide an approximate location.  This location is not typically accurate within a couple kilometers.  The BlackBerry will use Cell Site Location if it is unable to retrieve a GPS location.

 

You will have to consult with your wireless provider to determine if its supported.

 

Thanks
