Default GPS 8700c Disable

Please Login to Remove!

I'm very new to the BB, but I have the 8700c from a new employer. I'm interested in how you diable the GPS tracking system for this device. I've heard your company can track you using the device. Can anyone help? Your knowledge is greatly appreciated.

I think only the 8703e for Verizon and Sprint have GPS tracking capability. I don't believe the 8700c has any GPS tracking.

And if it did have gps tracking, it's their device and they have every right to know where you are during your working hours...

that is correct, no GPS in the 8700c..I have one and will most likely change it for an 8800, but will do some more research before asking my company to change it for me..
