    Maybe the apps are giving you the trouble. I take it that you tried each one on .148?

    And yeah, the inconsistency is weird.
    Yup, same exact everything just switched the OS.

    It won't link up. I've looked at the configurations and seems fine. However, when I use Weatherbug, GoogleMaps, Where - or any other applications that uses a location/GPS - the applications state that there is no GPS.


    If yours is fine - thought?
    Man that has to be hardware. If every app is not seeing the GPS, the GPS isn't sending data when it's polled. Last ditch effort... have you tried Signal Locator?

    Signal-Location Utilities for BlackBerry

    If that doesn't cut it, I'd say you have a fried unit.

    Alright, you guys are making me want to give .148 another try before I take it back. Keep in mind this is the same phone I got the morning of release in Nov. Any of you using one that old??
    I got mine a month after. Like I stated above, .148 runs solid - other than the GPS.

    But keep in mind, my GPS could just be operator stupidity.

    Did you load BB maps with .148?
    If not, that's probably your problem.

    my battery has lasted 2 days, and havent rebooted for almost 6 days now
    Same here, only 1 reboot since .148 installed on the night it was leaked & that was to remove some apps a I installed & didn't like. It has been the best of the non hybrid OS so far.

    I wouldn't begin to pretend to know how to run said utility.

    I'm sorry if this seems like the most basic of questions, but you have the GPS turned on, right?

    Utilities>Advanced Options>GPS

    Make sure you're set to "Location On."

    In all fairness, try it. However, if you are sastified with .132 - then stick with what you are happy with.

    Like many said to me, before I loaded - "if you don't like it, downgrade back to what you DID like."

    Yes. I will try the BBMaps idea, as stated by a previous poster.

    wait no what i have on my phone is

    v4.7.0.148 (Platform 4.0.0.181)

    so how is 4.7.0.203 the same as the .148 if the numbers don't match?

    does it sound too good for you all that verizon would actually be able to sneak a different build on you guys? they do have access to pretty much all the builds

    Kinda defeats the purpose of me having this phone if I can't use any apps.
