I wonder if this was a stipulation by RIM for Verizon/Vodafone, to be able to carry the Storm exclusively? Would make sense, from RIM's standpoint, as Verizon would not be able to disable this feature, and everyone, including Verizon customers would be able to use their device's GPS as they see fit.
ok ... go to options>> advanced options>> applications>> scroll down to BB maps>> hit the BB button >> go to edit default permissions>> make sure all 3 say "Allow" and you should be good. Just make sure under advanced options and GPS, its also set for "location on"
I think GPS only works with 4.5 os, nothing lower...
yes you have to be outside or near a clear shot of sky from window. Last time I check to get satellite reception you have to have a receiver on the roof. well same goes for this, you have to be outside.
