The GPS is there. You just can't use it.

Verizon people show be used to getting gimped phones so I don't know why it is a surprise. They have been gimping all of their smartphones since I was with them a long time ago.

That is my biggest complaint with Verizon Wireless ... The gimping of the phones, I love their network, it's amazing ... I just wish they would leave the phones alone and not focus on trying to make that extra buck from us for features that should be standard on the mobile device. I remember their first bluetooth enabled headset, and how all the profiles other than handsfree were disabled. Come on Verizon, wake up!
