Not tested, but I read on a Norwegian mobile phone news site about
someone with a Nokia phone with GPS. Recently Nokia had enabled the
AGPS functionality in the phone through a software update, and after
that this person was able to get a GPS fix inside his apartment.
Before (without AGPS) he hadn't been able to get a fix inside at all.
I guess it depends on the hardware.
