Default 8310 Google Maps permission issues...

Please Login to Remove!

Hello Forum! This is my first post here, and it is no doubt one easily solved. I did several searches but did not come up with an answer that helped. Also searched Google with no luck, but it is late (and it was pizza and beer night...

I've had my 8310 for about a week now. Among the first things I did was download and install Google Maps. Worked like a charm immediately, and continued to do so until tonight. Now, upon start, I get "This application cannot be used until you grant it permission to send and receive data over the network". Funny, I don't recall telling it that it could not!

I went to Options>Advanced Options>Applications>Google Maps (which interestingly is in bold text (v.2.1.0 btw) and expand all, EVERYTHING=Allow.

Expecting a dope slap, what am I missing? Why did it suddenly stop running? Permissions all seem to be set correctly, and I certainly did not change them. I also tried uninstalling and re-downloading, but same thing.

Thanks in advance for such a great forum. Only a week old newbie and already I am smitten with this device! How did I get by without?

Default Battery pull...

Yes, numerous times. And the phone reset after each attempt at playing with the permissions, and upon reinstall of Google Maps. Nothing. Every time I start the program, I get the error and am forced to exit.

Is this a company owned device?

No. Personal device. Google Maps worked fine two days ago, and suddenly not! Don't recall messing with anything deep, so not sure why I am getting the error.

Default Dope Slap!

Fixed it (for now). So, this is a Bill Gates sort of thing, eh?

Went into applications>edit preferences for Google Maps (again) and hit "apply defaults". They had already been set to ALLOW, but I thought I'd try it again. Set them all to ALLOW, and now it works. Go figure! Thanks for your time anyway... Maybe it was a network thing?
