As a step further, A-GPS technology helps to overcome these glitches. Suited for mobile devices, A-GPS takes assistance from GPRS and at times, the service provider network information, to pin-point the current location accurately. Moreover the amount of CPU and programming required for a GPS phone is reduced by diverting most of the work to the assistance server instead. 

A typical A-GPS enabled Cell phone uses a GPRS or other such Internet based data connection to build a contact with the assistance server for A-GPS. This exercise usually is a bit slow if you are connecting with the server for the first time. As this technique does not take into account the cell phone service provider network completely, you only pay the GPRS usage charges and nothing else. The only down-side to this technology is that an A-GPS server cannot utilize any of the three standby satellites available for GPS connections.
