Actually, you will want to power cycle the phone in between the GPS toggles so that it boots up with the GPS off.  Turn off GPS, both wireless and satellites, then turn the phone off and on again.  Now checkmark both GPS settings and retest.  And as fireguy_6364 stated, is your "location" failing in a widget like the clock/weather widget or in a navigation app like Google Navigation or Telenav?
