GPS Searching after Factory Data Reset

So I was having some minor issues with my phone so I decided what the heck, I'll do a Factory Data Reset. Unfortunately after I did the reset my gps will not work properly. Before the FDR my GPS would lock on in usually less than 5 seconds, even indoors. Now however it will take 5 minutes or more. I've tried GPS Status and that helps at first but then if I leave my phone for 30 minutes or more and open up google maps I get the same problem, searching....

I've checked and unchecked and rechecked all the relevant location services options and still nothing helps. My wife's Razr Maxx works perfectly, almost instant gps lock every time we open google maps. I've checked everything I can think of online but nothing seems to help. Any ideas from here?
