I think AT&T removed the limitation after that. Would be a good idea to search the net for the articles to that.
I hear it was a misunderstanding and it was never locked down. That being said, I am happy that it is NOT locked. I have used nav4free, google maps, live search. They ALL work perfectly with the internal GPS. I now pay for Telenav though as it is a good piece of software.
