Try another network?

Re: MODE_GEOLOCATION is not available on my device.

I believe you asked a question about requiring BIS plan on another Thread, and I said I didn't think it was needed to get a location because I could get a WiFi Location when only on WiFi.  However to get a CellSite location I can see that it might in fact need that - perhaps BB only maintain a list of masts and locations based on the carriers that support BIS-B.  But that is just a guess - which is why I said try another network/carrier.
