Ok this is really weird. I am moving a bunch of my Java code from 4.x to work in 5.0+
One of the features is geolocation and I cannot get it to work. Doing a simple locationProvider,getLocation(new Criteria()); is timing out... this happens on both phone (Bold 9650) and simulator. GPS is turned on etc and when I load the maps app it shows the "searching for satellites" message...
Is there some sort of permissions or something that I might be missing with the widget stuff?

We are using a null Criteria() as well and just had one of our 9650 customers report the same thing. Many others using the 9650, even on the same carrier, are fine. (Well, I assume from their silence that they are not experiencing the same issue)
I've been working with the customer, examining all the permissions and settings and there doesn't appear to be anything different on his phone. I would be VERY interested to find a solution to this ASAP...

So I went back to check our 4.x versions of geolocation and I get the same lat / lng = 0.0 when I run it in 4.6 but the simulated location works on 4.6.1, 4.7 and 5.0
I am now moving over the working geo code to run as a widget extension and see how that works.
