Default Installing Google Maps

Please Login to Remove!

Do I have to have a data plan to install google maps? Can't I just download to my computer then plug the phone into it and upload it to the phone? (That's how I installed the Opera browser.)

If I have to have the data plan, can I just have it for one day to install google maps (t-mobile)? What happens if I get the data plan then cancel it? I will still have google maps installed right?

These may seem like stupid questions, but I am not really into phones that much. I did search for most of these questions, but nothing really answered my questions thoroughly enough.

Thanks

You can download it over the air, but you will still need the data plan for the maps to appear. It uses data to draw the maps on your phone based on search and GPS locations. Without a data plan it is not usable. Hope this helps..
