    Hey,

    I recently got my Blackberry Curve 8900 from rogers on the unlimited email and IM plan (No data). And was trying to use the blackberry built in gps just to see my location, not using a map software or anything. but I came across this problem:

    When ever I try to get the GPS location using refresh GPS, it just comes out with nothing, just Searching for Sattelittes for ever and then the same 0's in every field. Is there something I need to do? Or do i just need dataplan? cant seem to figure it out:

    Settings:
    GPS Data Source: Device GPS
    GPS services: Location ON
    Location Aiding: Disabled.

    thanks

    Go outside in a location with no cover and a clear line of site to the sky... then Refresh GPS... plan on staying there for 10 minutes.

    so even just the local co-ordinates require a dataplan?

    Does a car need gas, or would you rather push the car to your destination?
