Wikipedia documents this well at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assisted_GPS

Basically a phone or gps unit uses a data connection to receive extra 
information to obtain a fix; this negates the requirement for a receiver to 
have 40 seconds of continuous satelite signal, helps in built-up areas.
Uses a truckload of data charges if you're not careful though.

Regards, Kerry.
