Default two questions?

Please Login to Remove!

1) I just bought a new 8300,when i look under apps. i see the GPS app. but when i open it all i get is GPS data source none.Does this mean that i don't have GPS installed ? if so why is the app in the phone.idon't think that my carrier Suncom offers GPS. 2) I installed a media card do i need to formatte it or do you just install and go. Thanks for any help.

The 8300 does not come with GPS. The 8310 does. You can, however, purchase a bluetooth GPS receiver for the BlackBerry and pair it.

2) You might need to format it... hard to say from here.
