GPS only works when the phone part is turned on, therefore you need a SIM card to use it.
If you got only a GSM connection it might just take a while before you get a lock, because it might not be able to get a data connection for the XTRA service. It takes me between 1 and 5 Minutes to get a lock without XTRA, depending on the conditions.
Yes, Samsung did a very poor job with GPS here... even my HTC phone from 2007 could use GPS without phone turned on.
I was told that if you start GPS in area with phone signal, and keep it running, it will keep working in areas of no phone signal except if you restart it.
