Question BB8820 can't use map applications?

Please Login to Remove!

I have tried several map applications on my replacement BB8820 without success. My previous one had no difficulty with them. If I try to run the BB maps app delivered with the 8820, for example, I get the following error message:
"Your current Default Services do not provide access to map data."
If I look at "Default Services" under "Advanced Options", only "Address Book", "Calendar" and "Messaging" are listed.
The "Service Book" (also under "Advanced Options") lists "BlackBerry Maps [LbsConfig] and has a check-mark by it.
If I look at "GPS" under "Advanced Options", "GPS Services" is set to "Location ON", but all of the "GPS Location" data are 0 or empty. I was able to download & install Google Maps 4.0.2, but also get an error message when I try to start it: "Application terminatedGoogle Maps has been denied the "Interprocess Communication" permission.", even though I have edited its permissions to "Allow" all available permissions ("Connections", "Interactions" and "User Data").
I am a BES customer with unlimited data plan. The BB8820 is running OS 4.5.
What could be causing this wierd behaviour, and how can it be fixed?

Do you know if your company is restricting access to GPS through an IT policy?

If so, it's something new and unannounced, since I was using Google Maps & co on my 8900 without problems. Now I have my 8900 (or a replacement back); maybe it will work better.
