    I was afraid of a response like that. Even though I explained all the trouble shooting I'd done, I still got a "canned" reply.

    That is just a standard response. Most of these technical support people never really know about this type of problem unless they have it in there system as a problem from Verizon directly.

    You should of just asked if Verizon is locking down aGPS to third party apps on the Palm Pre Plus. See what response you would get.

    i found turning on wifi, whether or not you are within range of a router, helps nudge my pre+ to a gps lock.

    I suppose the battery was just really, really, really dead. I even let it charge for about 30 minutes and it still wouldn't turn on. Had to let it charge over night. When I got up in the morning, it was fine.
