ATT doesn't like you to use BB Maps.... I never got it working on my devices (8100, 8130) at varying levels of the OS up through 4.5.

You will need a BlackBerry specific data plan that's attached to the SIM card you're using to get your email working too.
Treat your password like your toothbrush. Don't let anybody else use it, and get a new one every six months.
