Yes, I was outside and wait for twenty minutes. But, I retried several
times, and it always work as expected then : no network (either WLAN or
3G), as long as the application requesting GPS is on, the GPS icon is
blinking until a fix is got. So, I don't know, maybe during my first
try, I closed the application or it crashed.

So it's working as expected, sorry for the note.

Have a nice day,
