    I have an 8130 Pearl from Verizon and Im wondering if I will get charged to use the BB Maps pre installed on my phone?

    VZ Navigator was never on my phone.

    I have Unlimited Data & Email for BlackBerry.

    Ive played around with BB Maps and it gave my directions to where I wanted to go.

    Is BB Maps like GPS????

    No, there is no reason for Verizon to charge you for a pre-installed app... especially when you have unlimited data.

    You don't have WiFi, your phone has a GPS but verizon disabled it unless you pay for thier vz navigator servce (which you can download from your phones browser)

    Ok thank you I understand now.

    But maps is kinda like a gps i guess idk
    At least it gave step by step directions to where I wanted to go when I was playing with it...

    Anyways you have a pearl from Verizon I was wondering did you have VZW Navigator on your phone? Because I didnt..

    I had the VZ Navigator on my old phone before I got my Pearl. I honestly never used it and wasn't impressed with it the few times I did actually bust it out. So I opted not to have it on my new Pearl. To me, it's not worth paying the extra money per month.

    If I really need directions to get somewhere, I just use google maps before I leave my house.
