It's a carrier and a phone issue. The Verizon 8330 does not have unlocked GPS, unless you are using a bluetooth GPS unit. An OS upgrade will not help, either. Blame it on Big Red and how they used to lock down their devices to only use with VZW products such as their horrible VZ-Navigator. The 8330 uses Assisted GPS with non-Verizon products so your mileage will vary with GPS applications.
I used to own one of these units. An inexpensive Bluetooth GPS unit solved all of my problems, until I upgraded my device.
