    Calendar, tasks

    Pretty much none of the ones that make this a smart phone. A BB is intended to use data.

    They're navigation apps. Perhaps use Google to find out about them.

    Did you mean to post in the Bold forum? I don't know anything about the differences between devices, but you might get more useful info in the 8900 forum.

    I don't think it needed to be moved. It was a generic BB question. The op just happens to have a bold.

    You can also use bbtracker. This app is actually quite good, since it lets you track the path you moved along. Good for checking how far you travelled by bicycle, how many meters heightwise you have made, check the velocity profile of your tour etc.

    Might also be very valuable in case of an emergency: if you need help, you can determine the coordinates of your position with it, so that help might arrive more quickly.

    The OP actually has a Curve II, not a Bold. In either case you can use GPS without a data plan and still have maps, use the program TrekBuddy. The maps will be limited but it will be functional.

    You can use all applications on the phone that do not involve the Internet. You will also not be able to get email or use Blackberry messenger. Other than these restrictions, everything else should work without any problems. This includes media, calendar, games, clock, tasks, camera, video camera, calculator, etc, etc. You will also still be able to place voice calls and SMS text. The phone will still be a "Smart Phone" however some of its applications will just be limited.

    I hope this helps clear it up for you.

    I don't know how it can still be considered a smart phone. All it will be is a dumb phone in a smart phone body.

    Access to data services does not make a phone smart. Basically a smart phone is "PC like" in nature. A PC is still a PC regardless if it is connected to the Internet/Network or not.

    Google and BBMaps are the only free ones I know of and they require data.

    Tom Tom is a different product that deals in GPS only, I don't believe you can install their software on a Blackberry. If you can I'm sure it will not be free. If anyone has any details I would be interested in finding out.

    Look back on the first page of this thread, I posted a link for information on a free GPS application that does not require data to work.

    The sticky at the top of this forum for OS v4.6.1.101 (Multilanguage), does this not have the languages you are looking for?

    Ok... so i need to update my OS v4.6.1.97 just to check if it has those languages. I can do that later if I have to haha! First things first...
