Thumbs down [i9003]GPS under cloudy sky not locking at all.

Since I bought i9003 phone this is my 1st rainy season hence cloudy & last few days I am not able to get gps signal at all, it just refuses to lock on as hardly 2 satellites are visible with poor signal.

I traveled 2hrs on road with angled sunlight but under heavy cloud (overhead) cover today & gps refused to lock.

Is there a a way out or our phone gps is useless under cloud cover, I am wondering what happens under dense fog which we face in winters?
Does that happens to dedicated CAR GPS too?

At this weekend I traveled under storm clouds and GPS worked well. May be because I did the following:
1. With help of GPS Aids I took LTO data
2. Before going by car I stay while GPS was taking signals.

Then I was going for more then 300 km without GPS loosing.

I noticed with Nokia 5800 that taking position in moving car is harder than when you are staying.
