Satellite issues

I purchased a Storm 2 a week ago (deliberately so I could do OS5)

 

The app I'm writing is dependant on GPS

 

Here's the problem - I'm finding it VERY hard to get a GPS lock

 

A friend has a 9300 and can't get it to GPS lock either

 

If someone as tech-savvy as me can't get a proper GPS lock how am I to expect my users to?

 

I would appreciate any reports you can give me as to whether your BB does GPS properly or not, please give the exact model number and (rough) location - county / state will do

 

iPhone works out of the box as does my Droid

 

I've had several reports of other non-BB Droid devices also working out of the box

 

I'll publish the results I compile so you can all be aware of any issues (I'll see if I can get it put in KB)
