I have given my code below.Please help.Thanks in advance.

[super init];

obj=[[UIApplication sharedApplication]delegate];

locationManager = [[CLLocationManager alloc] init];

obj.longitude1=[NSString stringWithFormat:@"%f",newLocation.coordinate.longitude];
//location=[[CLLocation alloc]initWithLatitude:39.9883 longitude:-75.262227];

HI, your codes seems ok. now these can be possible reasons :

on your init: try to check if there is locationServicesEnabled or not.

locationManager = [[CLLocationManager alloc] init];
if(locationManager.locationServicesEnabled == NO){
    //Your location service is not enabled, Settings>Location Services  

other reason, you may disallow to get location to your app. solution: simply remove your application from iPhone and re-build, now it should popup dialog to Allow location.

use this to check error

- (void)locationManager:(CLLocationManager *)manager
       didFailWithError:(NSError *)error
    NSLog(@"Error while getting core location : %@",[error localizedFailureReason]);
    if ([error code] == kCLErrorDenied) {
        //you had denied 
    [manager stopUpdatingLocation];

otherwise all seems ok, you were already running ios 4.0 , which can be install in iPhone 3G and later, if it was iPhone 2g, then this problem may occur.
