Re: How to get geoloation without GPS on Blackberry OS 5

The link you provided includes OS 5.0 informaiton.  I found this on the page you pointed us at.

 

"In 5.0, the geolocation service provides location information by using cell tower positioning. To retrieve a location by using geolocation, you must specify GPSInfo.GPS_MODE_CELLSITE as the mode."

 

You mind find the following useful too:
