Hi I recently bought an m8 on ebay. I noticed that the gps doesnt lock on even though the location settings are set to high accuracy. As of now there is no service on the phone. When i connect to wifi it gets my location through A-GPS but without wifi it doesnt track my location even with offline maps. I tried calibrating my compass using the 'GPS Status' app, but it doesnt seem to work. Does anyone know if this is a software problem or hardware? can i replace the gps in the phone?
Thanks in advance for your help.

On the GPS Status app, do you see satellites being locked on? On the circular display, you should see dots, and bar graph below will show signal strength. You can typically lock onto several satellites very quickly, unless there is a hardware issue or in a poor location (sky is blocked).
