    I've not only seen it, I've had it, so I had to find the fix. It's from a Youtube video, but the 10 minutes or so boils down to:

    GPS Fix
    Open the phone, as if you were going to make a phone call and dial -
    *#9090# -- Diagnostic Configuration (*#197328640# if that doesn't work)
    Menu, select Key Input, enter Q
    Menu, select Key Input, enter 0000
    wait for the next menu. (It takes a while.)
    UMTS->COMMON->NV REBUILD->NV REBUILD->SYSTEM->PROTOCOL->GPS->IMS
    or, if you don't have UMTS:
    UE SETTINGS & INFO->SETTING->SYSTEM->NV REBUILD->ALL

    Restart the phone.

    It locked in about 20 seconds the first time after that. (Use GPS Status & Toolbox if you want to watch the GPS receiver in action - which satellites it's acquired, which ones it's read a full datastream from, your location, the HDOP and VDOP [accuracy of the location it's giving you], etc.)
