Turn off location aiding

Depending on your wireless service provider and wireless network, this feature might not be supported. By default, location aiding is turned on to improve the performance of GPS technology. When location aiding is turned on, your BlackBerry® device connects to a central server periodically, which can increase your data service charges. To avoid these charges, you can turn off location aiding, but it might take longer for your device to get your GPS location. For more information, contact your wireless service provider.
  1. On the Home screen or in a folder, click the Options icon.
  2. Click Device > Location Settings.
    • To turn off location aiding, change the Location Aiding field to Disabled.
    • To turn off location aiding when roaming, change the Location Aiding field to Disabled While Roaming.
  3. Press the Menu key > Save.
