Maybe VZW and ATT are fixing to merge and are currently synchronizing their management styles.

Never happen, AT&T is union, just think of how many pathetic Sales reps and CS reps would come to VZW or in the merger. Nope Nada Zip. Heck where I am the AT&T people in the corporate store's don't know jack, the Agents give the best service going. Let me rephrase that (1) Corporate store is good the rest they don't give a rats ass about you, your just a commission to them after the 30 day trial.

As far as BB8820 locked down or what ever you want to call it. Until someone gets it in there hands that knows the functionality I would not believe any of the rumors.

Verizon is supposed too release a version of the GPS functionality by close of 3rd qtr, and there keeping it locked down on whats going to work and not work. But the new Moto Q9 is being released for sale on the web on the 24th of the month, wonder how much of that they hacked and crippled?


Either hack the device and make these things work, rewrite the code or switch providers or just deal with it .

Just wanted to quote my previous statements, as it seems some of you are getting worked up over what is possibly a non-issue, just as it's been for almost a year.

Download and install the 8820 software, edit the LBS.alx file, connect to BDM, and an let the device do an automatic reboot. This enables it to work with BlackBerry Maps (of which is not preloaded on AT&T-branded BlackBerry devices). Download Google Maps and it works just fine.

If it turns out this is not the case, so be it. But I could definitely see how misinformation could spread through the lips of someone from the inside of AT&T who didn't know any better and was simply reading marketing material. Afterall, if I was behind the decisions at AT&T, I would definitely want everyone who needed to know some sales material to think that GPS would be an enabled feature for $10/mo, right? You start with planting a seed with the employees and letting it grow into food for your customers.

Just some food for thought.

jibi i think your 100% correct.

I think there is a certain site that wanted publicity and created this issue and used apple as one of the villains. But i think your right, it will be the same as the 8800's GPS.

Can you provide a link to the procedure to edit the LBS.alx so you can use the 8800 with BB maps? I assume doing this allows you to use any GPS compatiable software right?

Goto here: BlackBerry -

And then follow the Download Blackberry Maps now, have your BB connected to the computer USB, and use IE, because its using Active X, and the rest happens automagicly.

Check that link and the GPS section of this site for GPS answers. This procedure allows BBmaps to be shown on ATT phones. All other GPS apps are fully functional.

I scrolled over to Fushun (near Shenyang) China and any detailed maps are non-existent. I'm not looking for turn-by-turn directions, just more than a railroad.
