GPS stopped working, can't figure it out... what else?

thanks everyone -- I will check it out although I am a bit confused
* originally GPS worked for me without AGPS at all, just TTFF was around
  2 min
* I thought AGPS feeding chip with previous locations was already
  implemented and that is why there is a button to remove AGPS data
  if you rellocate (used it few times, and then again acquired time/fix
  within few minutes)
now I am experiencing now fixation (or even time acquisition) at all,
which sounds somewhat different... but ok -- I guess I better check
first what effect I would get with "online assistance".
