Unhappy How Can I use verizon 8830G

Please Login to Remove!

I dont know how to use it.

I try to find out in this forum, but I could not find it.

1. How can I use GPS? On my GPS option I coundn't select GPS source

Do I have to pay to telenav?

I bought this BB because I thought that I can use GPS free.

2. I can't set up E-mail.

How can I set up for my school e-mail(PSU)?

3. Where Can I find out the manual for my BB?

Verizon just gave me a Tips, hints & shortcuts instead of BB manual.

Please I need your help, guys.

1. No GPS on the Verizon 8830 until they enable the service which you most likely will pay a monthly fee on.

2. You have to be a bit more descriptive on the e-mail. This link might help also:

Go through the "Setup Wizard" that may help.

3. Search, or use Dawg's link.

1. You must not be looking very hard. There are tons of threads on how GPS is currently disabled on the Verizon 8830 and 8703e... As for GPS in general -- yes, it doesn't cost anything to get positioning data using the GPS satellites. Now, your GPS app on the other hand may or may not be free. It just depends on the specific app that you're looking at.

3. Blackberry.com. Find your model & click on the support tab. There are a couple more steps but it should be pretty clear.

The bb manual is on the cd that labeled blackberry in pdf format not the verizon cd.

Gps will never work you are gonna be stuck with assisted gps for a price

Hope this help
