My general experience with GPS in phones is, that atmospheric conditions have a bigger influence than where you are (under trees or indoors etc).

Did you try to get a lock with any other phone? If there was a snow storm, I doubt you can get a lock with any phone.
until recently, I was very satisfied with the Gps on the pulse. Far, far better than my two previous Gps enabled phones.
However, yesterday, during a snow storm. It was unable to get a lock!
Nice phone lots of decent features and apps... however I have big hands and cannot get on with the touchscreen especially when texting and no styleos I have found work on this handset not the iphone stylus or a regular stylus
this phone maybe a bargain, and you may think junk but no it's actually a fantastic phone. only downside is earphone too quiet and videos not upscaled to full screen nor does it have graphic equaliser in music player, shame. also the virtual keypads not too great for large fingers, otherwise doubt you could find a better general use phone. makes n97 look dated!
Have had the pulse for a week now and love it, these smart phones are seriously addictive. My partner got an Iphone the same day and we have compared notes. I prefer my pulse to the iphone, cheaper tariff per month and the huge amount of free applications and the pulse is a lot cheaper than the iphone, you only get what you pay for. So glad I wasnt lured into an iphone contract.
Only wish the users manual would have more info on how to copy your music across the pulse.

Anonymous, 30 Nov 2009How is this phone when playing videos?Very poor when playing videos. I tranferred to it some short wmv clips from the internet and a clip taken by a nokia phone. The Pulse refused to play either of them!
I suspect we need to buy video playing software from the android market. Since the built in software in inadequate.
Cannot choose between this or the HTC Touch 2.
Which one would be the best for playing music and videos?
Finally bought the Pulse, when the Payg price fell to £137 last thursday.
First impressions are, this is an Iphone clone, phisically looks the same, feels the same, same size screen and resolution.
The call quality is only average, better than some cheap phones I,ve listened to. But not as good as a quality Nokia or my old O2 Zest.
The screen does freeze quite often when overused, but comes to life after a 30 second rest.
Like the Iphone, the touchscreen only accepts finger input. A stylus will not work. My old Zest accepted both! Screen not very responsive near the sides. problem with 'P' on qwerty keyboard, turning phone round into landscape mode, rearranges phisical screen positions of all letters and solves the problem.
Also we have 3 keyboards to choose from in 2 oriantations.
Spacebar refuses to work with my fingers but works with thumbs. Is this intentional ?
Finally a GPS phone that works properly.
Inside the house in, google maps can pinpoint me using GPS in 2 seconds in good weather and 10 seconds in rain outside. My last two GPS enabled phones were very tempramental. The took upto 10 minutes to get a lock, if at all.
Streetview in google maps!
Good points: You can magnify the images, with two levels of zoom.
since the original image has limited resolution, magnifying it leads to some softness and loss of clarity as expected. Same as on a PC.
Bad points: The original zoom level in streetview has a bug and the image is poor, very poor! Compared to the Iphone and other phones I've used.
same here with the battery. i am not sure if that helps but switching off wi-fi when not in use should help.if not i am going to give a yell to the boys from t-mobile and we'll see what they say.
did anyone asked in stores did the battery is only problem because if it is then it should been automaticly replaced??
Battery life is not poor. However, like other deviced I have encountered it wont last a whole day if your doing something like browsing the web.
