This is a cross-post of "Why does my phone's GPS not work in China?"
Based on some of the answers and comments there, I am attempting to figure out what GPS sensor is being used in my phone, and what, if any restrictions Verizon and/or HTC and/or Google has placed on it.
I am currently in Beijing, China now, and have a China Unicom SIM card in my phone, not that it makes any difference - the GPS doesn't work with my Verizon SIM in either.
