URGENT HELP: Capturing location at regular time intervals

We are developing an application which requires the Blackberry to capture the phones location at a regular interval (e.g., every 1 hour) using any of the available location services (GPS, Cell Tower triangulation).

 

When we built a code to capture GPS only location we got location data at somewhat regular intervals (I assume because I might have been in no GPs zone). When I built a second code which would switch from GPS to Cell Tower triangulation when no GPS was available did not generate a single location update and kept returning "Location Informaiton Not Available".

 

I am using blackberry 9650 for testing and am in the Verizon network in the US

 

Questions:

1. Does location capture on blackberry require Verizon's permission to access locaiton information? For GPS? For Cell Tower information?

2. Is this permission required from all different networks e.g., AT&T, Sprint etc?

3. How do I go about getting this permission if required?

4. Are there other ways of achieving my goal of continuous location capture at regular intervals?

 

Thanks for your help.

 

Best.
