Default Cannot download google maps

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I have downloaded google maps application, all was good, but when I am trying download maps I get the message "could not download google maps".
Now that's what I do. I press the "g" icon on the screen, then navigate to "maps" button, download's progression bar appears for few seconds, and then disappears and I got the message on the bottom on the screen "could not download google maps".
I don't know, maybe there is smth not right with the phone settings, because I also had a problem trying downloading the trial version of the dictionary, and the customer support advised me to install Java. It's kind of a bull...t, because Java is originally preinstalled, so what is this problem about? I can go to web sites, I downlaoded gmaps applications, but cannot download maps themselves... What the...?

I'm looking at the web page and don't see any "g" icon - just the Google Maps icon in the top left corner.
Using your BlackBerry's Browser go to:
http://www.google.com/gmm
and click on the "Install Now" link.

Maybe I was unclear. The g icon is not on the website, it's on my phone's screen. When I press it I got on the top of the screen: mail, maps, news, reader. When I highlight the maps icon on the bottom of the screen there is the message that maps are not installed. When I press it, for the few seconds I got the progress bar and then the message on the bottom, that maps could not be installed. And thats it for infinity...

That's Google Search, not Google Maps. Try the directions in my first post.
