HTML5 Geolocation on BB OS 6.0

I'm attempting to get GPS coordinates through the BlackBerry browser using an ASP .NET MVC app.


I've downloaded the HTML5 Geolocation sample (http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Web-Development/Using-HTML5-Geolocation-in-your-Web-or-BlackB...) & applied similar code to my app. 


The sample app & my app works great on:

Curve 8530 - (simulator)

Torch 9800 - (simulator)


However - even the sample app does not work on a:

Sprint Curve 9330 - (actual device)

Curve 9330 - (simulator)

ATT Torch 9800 - (simulator)


Basically - it just returns coordinates.latitude = 0 & coordinates.longitude = 0.


I just saw that the Verizon 9330 & the "official" Sprint 9330 simulators are availale for download, so I will try those next.


Any other thoughts?
