Default 9100 Gps & At&t

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all. I am wanting to pick up a 9100 and it looks like my only choice in the US is AT&T. Does the GPS on the AT&T 9100 work with 3rd party apps such as Google Maps? I've had T-Mobile and Verizon BBs before, but never AT&T so not sure if they lock down the GPS. This is the one feature that will make or break the deal for me.

Thanks.

GPS is not locked down, but BB Maps is. I have a 9800 on ATT and use Google Maps when I need it. Works great and I would expect the same for you on a 9100.

Thanks Dub. I don't use BB maps, prefer Google maps so that will be perfect.
