    How do I do this?
    My Epic 4g is doing the same thing inside USAA. I have also made sure both GPS and Cell location are on and my privacy settings are correct. I've even tried the 'Cold start" GPS fix with no luck?

    Anyone else with a galaxy having issues?

    Default Same issue

    Im having the same issue. Actually gps is not finding my location so that is probably the problem with usaa. But there is no reason usaa needs location service on for deposit@mobile. I can logon and have full access to evertthing else so what makes deposit special? In fact I would mind if that one single thing is less secure so more folks can deposit money in my account.

    Default Same Issue with USAA Mobile too

    I am receiving the same error message with USAA Deposit@Mobile. Checking in to see if anyone has worked around it.

    Default Camera seting

    Need to enable GPS in your camera settings. under setup tab enable gPS. That should do it.

    I just did this because I was having the same msg come up. I first had tried using the Verizon location then just now switched to the GPS location and now I'm getting that my location is temporarily unavailable after inputting a location I want to go to and then tapping the 'get directions' icon on the top right.

    Seems the only location that works is the Google location/locator for me anyway.

    From inside your web browser, hit menu>more>settings> scroll down to "enable location" and make sure that is checked.

    I was having the same problem and finally fixed it by going into
    Settings>Wireless & Networks and then checking the Wi-Fi option.

    Having the same problem on LG marquee, " error obtaining location". What a bunch of crap. Installed/uninstalled app few times, enabled all possible gps, wi-fi, wireless networks. Nothing. Called USAA tech support and the lady on the phone asked me to uninstall it again. I was like wtf, did that 4 times already. She persisted and I did it again with no results. Now, they have a claim open and somebody should call me within 24-48 hours with solution. Will report how it went.

    Did you ever get a solution for the LG Marquee? I have the same phone, same problem, same lack of help from USAA. I've tried everything mentioned here to no avail. Any other suggestions???
    Thanks!

    Any updates on USAA issue? Just got the LG Marquee and it seems every app has a specific bug just for that phone...

    I tried this and it did not work. But if you go to Settings/Location and then click on MODE you can select High accuracy. At last I am no longer frustrated.
