I tried the instructions, I did not have to enter the PDE IP/Port/etc, they were provided for me by the phone, but it did say port 8920, and I did have to choose the pull down, either Mobile or PDE because it was blank, I chose Mobile.

When I then load BB Maps, it takes a long time, then says rendering, the bar fills up, then the BB reboots.

I also notice my "wireless" connection is off (the bars at the top right of the BB main screen showing your current connection to the cellular network says OFF).

I was wondering first, if my problem with BB Maps is that the cellular connection is off.

2nd, if the port provided by my phone should be changed to a telus/bell configuration as stated in some of the messages here.

3rd, Fishinhard, how do you notice the GPS is off?
Hi, I cannot tell you about all the IP settings because I am not familiar with your carrier, but I would guess that Telus, Bell or Rogers might be appropriate if you are with a Canadian carrier.

Yes, after performing the mods with QPST, your phone's radio will be off. Turn it back on by going to Main Menu -> Manage Connections (that funny antenna-looking icon), and then check the box Mobile Network.

To verify that GPS is on, go to Options-> Advanced Options -> GPS and verify that it is set to Location On.
