Default Verizon GPS

Please Login to Remove!

Sorry I am not trying to beat a dead horse here but I called Verizon knowing they have not enabled GPS on my BB but I wanted to gripe at someone and felt like venting. The funny thing is that the tech support person told me that while I obviously could not use their VZ Access crap because my phone was not "get it now" cabable (thank god) however I could download a third party app and use it just fine. I was like "are you positive" for which he said "absolutely".

So it appears their own people don't know JACK about thier own stupid policies.

This is obviously a stupid question but is there absolutely NO hack or work around? I just can't believe someone hasn't figured this out yet.
