Re: GPS on 9700
There is no icon for GPS. You need a BB data plan and a map application such as GooogleMaps or BBMaps. AT&T blocks BBMaps for whatever reason so download Google Maps.

To get GPS to work with the maps, you need to have "Location Services" on and be outside with a clear view of the sky. It can take about 20 minutes or so to find yourself. I recommend starting GoogleMaps as it locates you within 2500 meters or so using cell tower data and triangulation which speeds up the GPS lock on process.
