| | Pls help, BB maps not working on Curve with data plan
Please Login to Remove!
I have just received a blackberry 8900 curve (v188.8.131.52 platform 184.108.40.206) from my employer on the Orange UK network. Itís absolutely great apart from one frustrating problem. I canít get the blackberry maps (v4.6.1) to work.
I can activate the GPS and it picks up satellites no problem but doesnít download any data (just displays the diagonal lines). I have even downloaded the Google maps (v3.0.2) application and when this is loaded it states ĎNetwork Unavailableí. This doesnít change even if I connected via WiFi. I have since downloaded Google mobile app and this displays a states it canít connect to the internet when itís selected.
Iím connected via BES for work emails, calendar, contact, task wireless sync. I presume this means I have a data connection and even my IT dept donít understand why the maps donít work and they have also contacted Orange about it, who havenít helped either!
I can access the internet via the browser and surf with no limitations. Iím not sure if it means anything but my TCP settings are set at:
APN settings enabled (checked)
APN authentication enabled (unchecked)
Username for ANP (blank)
Password for ANP (blank)
Can anyone suggest a possible fix before my Blackberry ends up out of the window?
