With that said, if your company president has an 8830 working on AT&T, then I may want to look into hiring him. The 8830 was released on Sprint (free GPS) and Verizon (crippled GPS). The 8800 was released on AT&T (hidden built-in GPS features that are easily enabled, for free; they push their $10/mo TeleNav feature) and T-Mobile (enabled built-in GPS w/ no agenda charges).
With that said, I don't see an alarming need to disable a free feature. However, if you want to disable GPS, you can do so with an IT Policy. If this is simply people enabling a $10/mo TeleNav service on AT&T, contact your carrier representative and have them disable the purchasing of the feature for your accounts. There's no point in having someone purchase what is easily available for free. It's AT&T's shady way of getting extra monthly fees by deceiving their customers.
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and is widely regarded as a bad move.
