    Welcome to CrackBerry.com

    Thus far, you've done nothing wrong. I say, pull the battery, and try again. Also, when you try, try to be near the window, or outside. Maybe the GPS is not starting probably because it's not getting a good signal...

    You must have a BB data plan for the maps to load. The GPS will work with or without a data plan.

    I'm also on t mobile uk and I had the same problem when I first got my 8800. If u haven't already you have to put the correct apn settings for your carrier. Google for "t mobile uk apn" and that will pull up the correct info. Enter it under options/advanced options/tcp. Worked for me. Hope this helps.
