    The same: Samsung claims that GPS is entirely AT&T responsibility because they sell AT&T Navigator, but that's a navigation program. GPS should work alone, but Samsung doesn't take responsibility and refers customers to AT&T nonetheless, while AT&T refers to Samsung for anything other than AT&T navigator.
