Hi Guys,

My first post here...

I have just purchased my very first Blackberry, a 8310 Curve...

I am not on a Enterprise Account or BIS; just a plain old Vodafone Prepay SIM.

I want to be able to use Gmail Maps with the GPS, access the internet and email... I don't care if I cannot use the BB Browser, or if I have to add an aftermarket Email App...

I just need to know what the first thing to do to start on the path to getting it to work is?

I've downloaded Opera Mini, and found a hack regarding Service books... but haven't implemented either of them, yet.

I'd really appreciate anyones help.

I'm pretty sure you need a data plan for the GPS to work, its redonkulous but I think that's how it works, also same for push email.

First thing to do: get a data plan.
Mentioned a few times in the GPS section:
> without a data plan, you can use various freeware apps
to manipulate/show/view the GPS coordinates/data in various ways.
> but to use the GPS functionality with a graphical program like
google maps, you need a data plan
As well as for internet access...
