Please Login to Remove!

I want to use my Bold as a modem for very occasional use and wondered if anyone had experience of this? also does anyone know about whether or not I can get google earth on my bold and geocashing?

Google maps works. There is no google earth for phones as far as I am concerned...

Thanks for the link. I shall check it out. RE The google maps. A friend was showing me his iphone the other day and it opened google earth and using the gps zoomed straight to our location. Quite groovy. I wondered if anyone knew if the bold could do similar and if so how? (I know its not really a business necessity and that the bold is much better than the iphone from a business point of view. But it would be fun). Also, anyone had experience of geocashing?
