Unlock GPS on the Verizon Wireless Touch Pro

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 6:10PM EST

Verizon Touch Pro owners who do not want to wait until “the first half of 2009” for Verizon to unlock the GPS on their mobile phones can head on over to PPC Geeks for some detailed instructions by lllboredlll (with some help from gc14) on how to do it now. The procedure involves installing a few cab files, running PPST, a soft reset and, for those that want seamless aGPS operation, some hacking using Qualcomm’s QPST programming tool. While you are in QPST, you may also want to follow the instructions to remove the Sprint banner from your phone. Hey, you in there already so you might as well, right? Many users on both PPC Geeks and Howard Forums are reporting success with GPS locks taking less than one minute using third party GPS software. As with any hacking with QPST, proceed with caution but if you do take the plunge, report your success or failure in the comments.
