| | Help - Google Maps on bold
Please Login to Remove!
Hi - I have read several posts which claim google maps on blackberry without a blackberry plan - just on a regular data plan.
Even the blackberryfaq.com website says:
: What kind of data usage can I use on BlackBerry with just a generic data plan?
A: You can use third-party software such as Opera Mini, IM+, GMAIL Mobile, Google Maps Mobile, BBWeather, etc. A lot of these applications are free. You just can't use BlackBerry-RIM-branded applications, but almost everything else you download off the Net into your BlackBerry works. Everything else you would normally use, such as phone, voicemail, PIM, SMS, etc, work perfectly on a BlackBerry.
BUT - I can't get google maps to work with my blackberry bold. I was able to download the application using wifi. But it won't use my data services to connect and download the maps. It keeps saying 'Loading....' in the top right corner. I have set my apn to vfinternet.au as several posts have suggested (since I'm with vodafone australia). I have tried battery pull several times.
Can anyone help?
