1. You need to get your BES admin to delete the configuration of phone type (e.g. 8100, 8310, 8310) and change it to NONE.

2. Uninstall GoogleMaps

3. Reset your device

4. Install GoogleMaps.

5. Change the permissions in google maps to allow.

Bingo, you should be in business!

Hope that helps others like me!

would you be so kind as to direct me to the place where i can delete the configuration of my phone? (i.e. #1). when i doubleclick my name within the list under my servername, i see properties...with a bunch of properties under it, and i see "blackberry device - read only" with a list of items, one being "bb device model - 8120" but it's greyed out, and i cant edit it.

also, are you suggesting if i delete myself from the BES i should be able to install and run google maps no problems?...obviously i need to be part of BES but it would be an interesting "Test"
