GPS feature in cellphones

 

Can someone explain how the GPS feature works in cellphones?

Also how do you activate or de-activate it?

Thanks

.

What phone?

Most phones wil have two modes

One usually called something similar to "e911 only" and the other being said for "LBS or Location Based Services" - and you simply chose which mode you want your phone to operate - the former will work only on reporting your gps location when calling 911 - and the latter will allow other apps on the phone to access the phone's gps for location data for precision over and above what the cell phone network provides via LBS and network based assisted gps.
