Since last firmware 2.1, I can not make GPS working on my unlocked iPhone 3G, and I thought this is only bug on firmware 2.1. and I tried the normal fixes like restore , reset all settings, etc.. Nothing works. So I Ignored it till firmware 2.2 comes out.
But today iPhone is officially in Egypt (Vodafone) and I found that this phones have the normal firmware 2.1 and apple blocked GPS on those phones too because Egypt do not allow GPS for security reasons (Don't Ask )
So on firmware 2.1 Egypt can not use GPS, but this only works if the phone officially unlocked because I have another locked phone that have UNIV-SIM and the GPS working very good in Egypt.
I even tried to use the UNIV-SIM with the unlocked iPhone but still the GPS not working.
Anyone please help all Egyptians who have iPhone3G and tell us how to unblock the GPS. what is the plist that tells iPhone do not allow GPS in Egypt, or how can I fake iPhone to tell it that I am not in Egypt.
