Thanks so much any help/insight!
Assuming Alltel doesn't block GPS like Verizon....
Is the GPS enabled in your BB options? Go to Options>Advanced>GPS and make sure it is. If it is, and you have configured it in WLS, then there should be an option to center on GPS, as well as start GPS tracking. It normally takes a minute for WLS to get the BB GPS running, so you may get a message saying that your GPS position is not available and tracking will begin as soon as it becomes available. And quickly it will be, and voila, your map will show your GPS postion. At least that's the way mine works.
