I just upgraded from my 8300 and I'm still learning all the ins and outs of this fantastic piece of technology. I installed Google Maps and did some practice directions and found my location OK. What threw me was the post that said "Mobile Connections" needed to be enabled. Since I didn't remember enabling it, I thought maybe I missed something. If it's picking up my location and giving me good maps and directions I guess I'm good to go. Thanks for your help.
This is definitely the coolest phone I've ever had, and I've had some cool ones. I can't imagine how what more I could want (yet!)
