Agps is not a requirement for the GPS, in this phone as far as i can tell, although AGPS can be got over the WiFi if needed, like the app GpsStatus would do that, and other apps out there.
With that said, it should be noted that in my system, the phone connects to the tower AnyFreakingWays. as the US model of phones is capable of making a 911 call (or even butt dialing one
without any sim card in place.
So much of my GPS testing also included working with the Airplane mode on, and the tower fully disconnected. And it still worked. Indoors not as well, but at least it works indoors eventually, some other crappy gpses (i used) would not ever fix indooors.
In the "location" settings, I just turn off the Web locator stuff, and leave on only the real GPS, I really do not know much about how the other location methods works on the phone, because I keep turning that off.
