OK, so I wasnt 100% sure where to put this, but here seems to be vaguely relevant.
I was in the pub last night with a friend who has the 8520, and we were comparing speeds of internet and Google Maps.
He's on vodaphone (UK) and had 3 bars reception of EDGE and i'm on T-mob and had 1 bar GPRS.
It seems that his google maps loads maps far faster than mine. My phone was originally on orange and now unlocked and moved to T mobile. I had some trouble getting the BB package all sorted, but now the internet works....albeit slowly and BBM works without hitches.
Could this be because my BB isnt optimised for T-Mob internet settings or is it because he has a new BB so has faster 3G? internet?
I thought the 8900 was able to provide on-the-fly GPS, but mine definitely couldnt do that unless I already had the map loaded, but even then, the satellite isn't really that quick at picking up my location so if I was moving in a car, it wouldn't be that great.
Any thoughts appreciated.
