Please Login to Remove!

i have just got a Pearl and i was trying to load Goolge maps on to it. It all seemed to load ok but when i try and run it, it sticks at a t&C page then gives me an unknown error and a fatal error message.
I have tried reloading the programe several times,i have switching my handset on & off a few times, i have had the battery in and out with the handset on etc but still no luck any ideas????????.

Nope, voicestream.com is only for TMO.

If you need other carriers settings do a search here, I think someones got a list of apn settings for every carrier.

I notice sometimes I had to reset the phone when I change tcp settings for them to take. This was only on .64 OS though.

googlemaps just installed fine, the error may have been with googles servers.

are you on a bes server?

[actually, edit: i don't think the apn settings was ever the issue here. pretty sure the google server was just having a braindump]

Traffic only works in some areas. Its listed somewhere on one of their pages.

The zooming in depends on the area of the world. Some places only have sparse satelite imagery (Eastern europe for example), others have more details satelite imagery (UK for example), and even low flying plane imagery (Mostly the US).

Test it out on google earth first for your area - its very configurable you can see exactly what kind of imagery its using - then test the same on google maps. The other person who told you they can zoom in further may be in a different area.
