1.how to use gps?

That depends on which device/carrier you are working with. It varies.

2.which device is use to connect gps?.

My best suggestion is the Motorola i730 from Nextel. It has GPS APIs that you can actually use (after you jump through a lot of hoops to become a Nextel developer).

3.any free service provider available to find location?

It's not possible to do this for any arbitrary device. (Unless you happen to operate a 911 call center and the government forces the carriers to work with you.)

Well, like I said, I wrote an LBS application for a Motorola i730 on Nextel. I found it very easy to write the program and only minorly annoying to deal with Nextel.

Nextel has a great site for developers.

I second William's post. The i730 is in the Motorola iDen family of phones which (I believe) all have GPS capability. Develop for the i730, and your app will likely run fine on most of the other iDen phones as well. And yes, I believe Nextel is currently the only iDen network. Of course, how the Sprint/Nextel merger will affect this is a question worth considering...
