Hello,

 

Is there a way to disable the pop up window that comes up when I turn on location features such as the GPS?  Using a Thunderbolt version 2.2.1.  Thanks.

I tried to insert a picture but I can't figure out how to do it.  Basically the popup is asking if it's OK to turn on the GPS.  It's a disclaimer stating that by using GPS I am enabling third party access to my location.

 

Thanks,

You can not post images until you reach a curtain membership level but I am unsure the exact level..

I think I know what window you are talking about. I've tried to hit the never show again and it continues to pop up. This might be because I have to restart my tb like 4 times a day due to data connection...

I don't think there is a way to turn off this pop up not from what I have read.

I can't find an option or a check box that says never show again.  The reason this is a problem for me is I have the app Androidlost.  If you lose your phone you can log in on a PC and turn the gps on to get a location of where the phone is.  This **bleep** pop up window wont allow the gps to turn on until it is acknowledged.  Doesn't do much good if I lose the phone and can't be there to hit OK Smiley Happy

Lets try to simplify things...  Which one of the images is the pop up you are speaking of?

 

  Option 1

 

  Option 2

 

  Option 3

Thank you for posting those pic's.  I was not able to do that.

 

Option 2 is the one that comes up when I try to remotely turn on the GPS.  It would be fine with me if they all went away.  When I turn on the GPS, that's really what I mean to do.  I don't need a window to ask me if I'm sure I want to do it Smiley Happy

 

Thanks
