    So, we're almost halfway thru the first quarter.

    Anyone hear anything new about the GPS unlock for all us non-blackberry VZW users out there, or do we think we're still gonna have to wait to the end of the 1st half of the year and beyond?

    The only GPS function that works on my Pearl is BBMaps. The new version of Google Maps doesnt work with the GPS. Heck... I cant use the GPS capability with the camera. The GPS was opened up to the BB maps few months ago. I thought the Storm gad unlocked GPS out of the box:confused:

    Gosh don't get me started..... :mad:

    VZW still has the GPS chips locked down to their own VZW navigator service for all us non BB smartphone users....

    Verizon claims that it will change sometime 1st half of 2009, but you know how timely the big VZW does things like that. :banghead:
