You can't use Google Maps without a data plan. It's a free app but requires the data.

And I do recommend getting the unlimited BlackBerry Data Plan should you use this often.

Both BBMaps and GoogleMaps use data, you can't download all of the maos to the device or the data card. Therefore, as previously mentioned, you must have a BB Dataplan to use them.

Do you have a copy of your T Mobile contract? That will show exactly what you have. If you don't have that, then I'd call T Mobile and ask exactly what you have.
