Then the phone carrier will enable Blackberry maps on your device or you better download Google Maps app that works very fine. There is no software that keeps the maps in Blackberry at this time (as TomTom), just piece by piece downloaded from Internet.
HELP NEEDED VERY URGENTLY!!!!!!!
I just got my blackberry 8900 today. GPS is a nightmare. I got a location fix after 10 seconds, (very good), but i cant find a shortcut for the gps to put it on the desktop, and i cannot find any maps on the phone or on the cd. Please anyone that had this issue advise me on this matter. It's my very first blackberry, so i am not very clued up on how to deal with this. I like the phone very much, but how the $%^&#@!!$& do you get the gps to work normally like my samsung omnia??????? I stay in South Africa. Do i have to buy maps, or are there maps on the cd i am BLIND?????

Is there anyone who has used both 8900 and 8520. I know the specs, reviews, price difference, trackpad vs trackball etc. But I need to know
- are they both equally user friendly?
- Which is better overall - trackpad or trackball?
- can the case in 8520 be changed to look like the steelish 8900 type cover?

If your on prepaid register by sending BB ON (denomination, 50, 220 or 1200) ex. BB ON 50 (for 1 day) send to 8888. Wait for BIS activation and your done.
I can't avail of Globe's data services with my 8900 because they say it's not Globe-provided and because I've already used it under another network (abroad). Is there something I can do about this besides buying a new unit from Globe?
