Make sure that you are outside with a clear view of the sky, this is not a must, but it can help. Go to setting, general, now turn on the location service.

The 3G is a bit thinner at the edges and includes a headphone jack that is flush to the side.
. The iPhone 3G differs from the iPhone in that it used 3G networking and included built-in GPS for expanded location based mobile services, and new iPhone 2.0 software, which included support for hundreds of third-party applications that were built with the iPhone SDK
One of the uses of the iPhone’s Map application is to get driving directions, right?. The starting point and destination point fields offer the Bookmarks button, you can quickly use a bookmark, recent location, or contact when searching for directions. For me, the first thing you should do in Maps is to find your address your own address and then bookmark it—this will make finding directions to and from locations as easy as tapping your home bookmark
Here's some interesting tips on how to get the maximum out of your iPhone - features that are not usually mentioned in the users manual. Zoom in and out in Google Maps: Everyone is familiar with the 'pinch' with two fingers to zoom in or out in google maps. A problem with this is the rendering detail in maps depends on what level you've zoomed. You might have noticed with pinching to zoom in, that the map is sometimes blurred. A simple solution to this is to double tap to zoom in. Google maps zooms in to such a level where you get the best detail of the map. Wouldn't it be so good if there was a similar tap option to zoom out? Turns out there is one - Single tap using TWO fingers to zoom out. Once again, the app adjusts the zoom level to get the best map detail. I've found this pretty useful and quick when I'm looking for directions or searching for a location. Sorting your photo library by 'Videos' and 'Photos':My iPhone photo library has tons of photos and videos. It's a pain to locate a video amidst so many photos in the photo library. So instead of using photo library to view photos, I sometimes use the Camera app, and enter the photo library (bottom left with the last image preview) from there. On top you'll find these options - All, Photos, Videos. Tap on one of those, and bam! you have your library sorted by the type of file! Screen shot of your iPhone: A pretty common tip - press the home button and the screen-off button to save a screen shot of your iPhone to your photo library.
hello,ensure you are not clicking on the key wrongly,i would advice you put the phone off and on back to see if the problem stops.if it doesn't i would also advice you ensure you close any application you are not making use of.it could also be as a result of accumulated opening of applications.
if that does not stop the problem,i would suggest you get the phone flashed by a mobile phone authorized repair engineer around you.
wish you good luck,
You can send all your data over GPRS by simply switching off 3G (HSPA) in Settings > General > Network.
If you're talking about GPS (Global Positioning System), you can activate it by enabling Location Services in Settings > Location Services and then opening the Maps application and tapping the small arrow in the lower left corner to zoom in on your location.
The iPhone does not come with turn by turn navigation software, you have to purchase that separately.
Make sure you have the iPhone 3G, or newer, because the original iPhone did not have GPS capabilities.
Also, make sure you are in a open outdoor area, (not crowded with skyscrapers)
Go in Settings > General > Location Services and make sure you have it turned ON, as well as all the other apps in the list underneath.
Make sure your phone is not in airplane mode.
Go in the Maps application and press the compass arrow in the bottom left corner. It should locate you on the map with a blue dot.
