Yes, the internal GPS receiver in the 8830 is currently crippled. it's crippled in the 8703e as well.

More than a few sources (including my own Verizon rep) have indicated that Verizon will soon be launching VZnavigator for the 8830 which will make use of the Internal GPS. This will be a subscription service for about $10 per month.

Disabling the Internal GPS isn't Verizon saying "we know what's best for you". It's more likely their way of generating more revenue from users.
