    Hello,

    I can't install Google maps and Gmail on my BB 8800

    When I try to download google maps or gmail app (on the BB explorer), I get the following error msg:

    "Error: incorrect JAD file
    MIDlet-Name is missing"

    Does anyone know how to solve this issue?

    FYI, I live in the NL and I have a Vodafone contract.
    Do you think the problem might come from there?

    Thanks in advance,

    No problems here, but, then again, I'm not on Vodafone. I wonder if they have some type of block on it.

    Also, I thought MAPS was ALREADY on the 8800, no? Check your list of applications...

    Hello there!

    I'm a newbie to this forum, as well. Our company just swapped everyone's Treo and iPAQ for new BB 8800's over the last couple of weeks. Ours came with an app called "TeleNav" which appeared to be a pay-to-use app. So we hid it and downloaded Google Maps on all BB's. Didn't have any problems with either the download or the install.

    Our carrier is AT&T...

    Regards,

    Thanks for your replies!

    No, my BlackBerry didn't come with googlemaps on it...

    I wish it would though.
    Gmail is also saying the same error msg.

    Thanks for your help, if you have any tips, thanks for letting me know!

    Here's hoping another Vodafone user drops in to give their experience with this. Since it works fine with other carriers, I'm beginning to wonder if it's a Vodafone issue...

    Hi ,
    try to reset your BB , if the problem persist you should reinstall the OS

    But with Vodafone
    if u have only BES service provisionned on your sim card
    google MAP & GPS will be ok
    But google Mail no
    you should have BES & BIS ( BB+) on the same sim

    I can't get googlemaps to work either.

    It downloads and installs fine.

    I phoned t-mobile and they can't help with third party applications, but he has made sure my account is ok.

    I have looked at the trouble shooting on google and still nothing works.

    Does anyone have any advice?

    Many thanks

    I get similar messages when I try to install either Maps or Gmail. Both tell me I need a working data plan and I had activated one for the day on T-mobile. I'm using an 8820. I am using a pay-as-u-go plan without a data plan but previous BB 8350i downloaded and installed via wifi. Any suggestions??
