    Default Orange just rang me....we got BB maps!!

    Well after my emailed complaint on monday orange rang me 5 mins ago, OK basically he said due to the large number of complaints we get BB maps, couldnt be sure but he sounded quite high up. He said the following, initially he said all the other networks also disabled it to which I answered BS!! Basically he that orange have (suddenly) found a way to make their software an BB maps work together, Gave him a good half hour lecture on how the staff feed us a load of BS and 10 CS reps will tell 10 different stories etc etc etc he got a good half hour of sh1t from me, you all would have been proud!!

    Anyway he said the date is not yet concrete but we should all get a sim update AROUND the 15th of the month, he begged me not to hold him to the 15th as he said the message from the top is sim update around the 15th

    Orange being orange this may never happen but I am hopeful it will

    LOL. GOOD JOB BODISAFFA!!!
    I'm proud of you bro. I'm glad you now have a resolution to this problem which should have been a problem to begin with. And I'm sure he had the 1/2 hour of s*** coming...

    How? If you are on Orange it removes the BlackBerry Maps icon?

    MSN matey not maps and I also got the maps app to run and display the icon but when the app runs a message pops up saying "BlackBerry Maps has been disabled"


    @Bodisaffa

    Yes it is direct from Orange, I restored MSN to the Bold from a temp back up file created from the Curve, and it runs and works a treat!

    Fantastic news! I will be checking my icons around the 15th

    Though I suspect that Google Maps is still far superior... :-)

    It has nothing to do with the software BlackBerry™ maps is already there they just choose to disable it to try and get more money from us!
    When I replace Oranges BlackBerry™ maps service book with that of T-Mobiles I get maps to work just fine as soon as I push Oranges service book back it disables maps again,
    That is why if you look in your service books you will find one for maps from Orange! All they have to do is edit that service book and re-push it to our devices, which I'm sure can be done in 9 minutes as oppose to 9 days!

    LMAO!! the dude on the phone pretty much tried to convince me they had been working day and night to get the software compatibility option sorted when we all know it has simply been disabled!!

    Time will tell but I am hopeful on this one, for the first time in my 9 years with orange I actually felt like the guy knew what he was taliking about!!

    I think this would solve the majority of Orange Bold issues, if they released BB Maps.

    Smile It Could Be Orange Maps?????

    I don't wish to be the bearer of bad news, but it could be possible that it is not BB maps, but indeed Orange maps that the "high up man" from Orange was talking about. From my dealings with Orange they said that 15th September is the launch date for Orange Maps.

    I hope you are correct though and we get the choice of maps on that date...

    PS Just about to buy my first ever BlackBerry, I hope they are fabulous!!!!

    We should be so lucky! Orange Maps looks much better than BB Maps! It has full sat-nav functionality with voice turn-by-turn instructions! BB Maps is more like Google Maps, whereas Orange Maps is a full blown sat nav app.

    I had BB Maps on my old Curve on O2, and it wasn't much cop - as many people have already said here - Google Maps is better IMO.

    If Orange enable BB Maps I'll most likely have a play with it, but it'll still be Google Maps I go to use every time.

    If they give Orange Maps free for users, I'll be well chuffed, as looking at the details, looks neat, especially with the voice turn-by-turn instructions.
