Default Re: no data plan on unlocked verizon 9530, can i activate gps ?

As far as I know there is no European 9530. That device was made for Verizon and Sprint which are CDMA carriers, but it can also run on certain GSM EDGE networks.

GPS does not require a data plan, however maps (BB Maps, GoogleMaps, etc.) do. If you can use the lat/long readout then you are good to go, but if you need more, you have to have BB data.

Maps are downloaded as needed, not stored on the device.
