    Hey guys, on my iphone 4 the gps keeps randomly failing to work for all apps that require it / the map.

    I have to reset the phone, it works, then stops again. ANyone else having this issue? Any way to sell it?

    You're not telling us much.

    What apps? What are you doing when it "stops working"? What is the evidence that it "stops working"? Were you doing anything in particular when it stopped working? Was the app in background or foreground?

    Two things:

    1. Your GPS radio failed. I doubt that.

    2. Your 3G/EDGE signal is bad, and the GPS can’t triangulate your position to assist the GPS to find a satellite. I vote for this. Of course, you might have the reception issue compounding this.
