I just upgraded to the latest Verizon code for my 7130e, now under
Options:Lcoation Based Services:GPS Services
I havean option called
LocationOn

does that mean that Veryzone has finally enabled GPS services?

That was there before the upgrade, too. It has to do with with whether or not your GPS position is visible to others. If you turn it off, it's still visible by 911 departments who have those capabilities (not all do). If you have it turned on, anyone with those capabilities (not very many right now) can see your GPS location.

The GPS capabilities of the 7130e are not as feature-rich as the 7100i. That's the only one I know about because it's the only other BlackBerry I've used.

I thought that before the upgrade it said LocationOff or 911Only?

No, it's the same now as before the upgrade.
