GPS is complex issue on BB. Try using something like this: http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Java-Development/Simple-Location-API/ta-p/1145951

I suggest you, on my experience, test the device gps OUTSIDE !

 

You can check in OPTIONS , if you are getting at least 3 satellites.

Re: GPS not working in blackberry device through java coding

fsellanes brings up a good point. You must test GPS on a device outdoors with a clear view of the sky in all directions. BB GPS simply isn't as good as that of Android and iOS at the moment, so this is a necessary step. I've spent many hours outside this summer testing GPS.

Re: GPS not working in blackberry device through java coding

Thank you for your response! Unfortunately, I am currently outside and it is still not working. Besides, if I am using the cell site service shouldn't it work indoors too?

Use BB Maps API.
