Unless plans are different in different areas of the country you do too have GPS. I'd check back w/ Verizon. It's not a satellite based GPS, but is rather based on triangulation between tower signals. As a result you may not always be in range of enough towers. Plus this technology is only accurate within 1700 meters - about a mile. So it's not extremely useful, only a neet curiosity. An honest to goodness GPS servive is available to you at additional cost. My question - Where did you get the OS 4.5? I didn't know Verizon suplied that for the 8830 yet. Thanks
