Default blackberry maps on Bold 9000

Please Login to Remove!

Good evening or afternoon everyone.....
I just got a free bold by switching from T-mobile to At&t. I am sure this question has been posted before: Is there anyway to use blackberry maps by over riding the AT&T navigator somehow? I have blackberry maps installed but for some reason it doesn't show up anywhere. It seems to be hidden by AT&T's software. I am currently using google earth for GPS but it seems slow and sticky. I read something about unbranding the phone , but I am not sure if that is something I want to do without really knowing much about it.....Thanks in advance for any advice....Paul

You need to change themes to the non ATT theme. (Options/themes). The icon will then show if it is installed

Currently. It will not function on At&t. (been trying the last 2 wks) to get it to work w/ bbm5. You get a quickcontacticon rim class error when trying to boot it up.

It's all at&t they blocked the serivce book several months but apparently it is back. Blame at&t. I know it sucks.
Q10! <- Love the 9000!! It's everything I wanted (minus enough ON BOARD memory)!!
<-9700 ---! more memory! small screen&keypad :( ->
