You can use the GPS all day long without ANY data plan. As stated above, the only thing TelNav or a data plan does is download maps.
Thanks man for the clarifciation.
I was pretty sure that AT&T had no way of blocking the GPS, but I got a lil freaked when I read about Verizon crippling the GPS so that it ONLY works with the VZW navigator service. 3rd party apps that make use of the GPS seem to be blocked, but I guess that's more of a Provider software issue than anything else. plus I read somewhere that VZW is going to "unlock" the GPS on the 8130s for use with 3rd party apps like Google maps and Garmin and such.
