Default 8130 By Bell...i Want To Have Gps Or Google Maps

Please Login to Remove!

Can anyone help me?!?!?

I just want to beat the bell system...is that too much to ask for?!?!

This is my problem on my 8130 V4.3 from bell mobility in Canada:

first- downloaded the blackberry maps apps from blackberry website..done
-the BB maps is there in advanced option>apps>BBmaps2.0.26
-but the icon is nowhere to be seen and nobody can help with that
so I quit on the BBmaps app.
second- I then decided to get the world famous google mobile maps.
-My problem-I dont care for browsing on my phone and so No Data
plan for me> thus meaning I cant use my phone to go to
mobile.google.com
-This left me with no option but to hope to download onto comp
then use application loader from desktop manager to
install on my phone. But, all of the downloadable versions
out there from download.com are either for symbian,
windows mobile, or palm!!!


CAN ANYONE HELP A BROTHER UP??? PLEASE, CAN I BE COOL TOO LIKE THE REST OF YOU AWESOME BLACKBERRY PEOPLE?!?!?!

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE

You should check the sticky in the GPS section: All known GPS Applications for BB

I do not know of a GPS map application that does not use the BB data plan. There might be one there and if there is, the thread above should have it.

Only if you buy a Blackberry data plan. That's the only way we'll let you in the "Cool Club". Blackberrys are a bit like the Matrix. Some rules can be bent, others broken. And some you're just stuck with. The Blackberry data plan gives you push email, and of course data. You can weedle out some data apps with a non-Blackberry data plan, but it's still a less-than-optimal solution. The bottom line is that with a Blackberry and no Blackberry data plan you lose out on some of the best features.
