    Default Verizon 8830 and OS4.5

    I think Verizon might be in the process of testing OS4.5 for release on the 8830. I say this because as of a few days ago, I noticed that I all of a sudden have a BBMap Service Book on my phone. As you know, prior to OS4.5 there was no requirement for this kind of service book for BBMaps to work, but with the release os OS4.5, the control for whether or not you can use BBMap will now be handled by a service book. (Probably has to do with AT&T complaining to RIM about their users' unlocking the ALX file to get BBMaps loaded on their BBs and loosing revenue from their Nav subscriptions.) Anyway, if anyone else has VZW and an 8830, check to see if you too have a BBMaps service book. If you don't, do a Register Handheld in HTR and see if it pushes out.

    I'll be happy once 4.5 gets here.

    I registered in HRT and nothing came through on my end.

    is there a link to the changes/new features in 4.5?

    4.5 is the big update that should give us HTML e-mail viewing, and a few other things. If you can find it, you can get a beta version of 4.5, but it won't do you much good until the service providers update their servers.

    Agreed. I've been wanting to buy one of the smart e-mail viewers, but I think I'll just hold out for 4.5.

    I will try this once I get some service and let you know.

    Maybe with OS 4.5 they will unlock the GPS -

    Well I bought a verizon curve, with os 4.3 and I don't have html email viewing(am I doing something wrong?). I was under the impression that 4.3/4.5 were the same? Or maybe I'm just incredibly ignorant and have no idea what I'm talking about!

    I *think* that he's talking about the Host Routing Table, which would be HRT instead of HTR. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but it has the option to register in there.

    go to: Options -> Advanced Options -> Host Routing Table -> Press menu button -> Register Now

    I have verizon wireless, not an 8830 but an 8330. I have a service book for BBmaps that wasn't on my pearl before.

    Does yours look like this?

    "BlackBerry Maps - NA [LbsConfig]"

    Newbie:
    I had recently purchased the 8130 Pearl from Verizon which had a font BBSans and BBSans Serif-which was the best font I have seen for the Crackberry's.

    My questions is, now that I have switched out to the 8830, it doesn't have this font option-is there a theme that is available that has these fonts or will an upgrade to 4.5 be included with these fonts.

    Is there a theme or way to add the BBSans font to my 8830?

    Thanks all.

    I do not have the BBMaps in my service books.
    I re-registered the HRT more than 30 minutes ago, and nothing changed as of yet

    JRSCCivic98: I re-registered the HRT several times since your email. So far the service books have not changed. But since I re-registered, I've lost my instant notification of posts to subscribed threads. Can you think of any connection between re-registering and losing notifications? All other emails are arriving normally.

    Reregistering has nothing to do with losing notifications. I'm having the same problem and have not re-registered.

    Thanks. I saw your response to my other thread. I'm glad I'm not the only one with the problem. And your username doesn't start with 'J', so that tends to rule out that theory, too.

    Hey JRRSCivic98,

    I'm on at&t, and i have that service book, allowing me to use BBMaps.

    Theres 2 ways to get BBMaps on to your at&t Blackberry..

    OTA at mobile.blackberry.com or modding the .alx file

    I forget where i read it, but SUPPOSEDLY RIM basically told the carriers that BBMaps can't be blocked...

    supposedly, meaning i will not vouch for that, because i did not speak to Mike Lazaridis personally, so its just a rumor at this point.

    just curious, are you guys talking about the service book named "BlackBerry Maps - NA [LbsConfig]" if so i got it on my verizon 8830. My OS is 4.2.2.176 (platform 3.0.0.79) I'm not sure when it popped up on my 8830, but just checked and i have that service book.... just a heads up if that's what you were referring to, if not, ignore this newbie... lol
