    Yes I know. It did not work with the Storm at first. Good to know it works now.

    Alltel

    4.5.0.131

    BB Maps connecting now.

    I can get google maps to connect to the satellites but ONLY if I have BB Maps open in the background. As far as I am concerned, this is a success.

    Thank you, people.

    Thanks for the info HouseApe. I actually have the PDF as an attachment so users don't have to wait 45 seconds to download it. I'll also update the guide with your information that I didn't already have.

    Glad you at least got that partial success baniels. Better than nothing.

    I'm going to be asking some stupid questions but bear with it =P

    Did you apply the Verizon network settings?

    Did you check all the boxes on the left with black check marks instead of grey or blank?

    Did you write them to your phone?

    Did you try a battery pull?

    Did you reread the phone in QPST Service Programming to make sure the gpsOne settings are still there?

    Is anything else working besides bbmaps at picking up a signal?

    Have you tried any programs besides mapping programs to get a lock?

    Are you outside and with a direct line of sight trying to get a lock?

    Do you have a charged battery?

    Is your firewall enabled?

    That's about all I can think of in the stupid questions area. Please get back to me.

    So QPST will not detect my phone even while BDM is connected to it. I am on Alltel and my MSL is 000000. I have tried both BDM 4.6 and 4.7.

    Any suggestions?

    Ok, I got it to detect the phone. It took some finagling and adding ports to QPST.

    Updated the settings. rebooted the phone one more time. google maps got my location within 20 meters, and bbmaps is tracking 9 satalites in about 30 seconds.

    this is great! GPS has NEVER worked on my new curve alltel replaced my old one with. Thank you very much.

    i have everything working except i may be a little slow with using winhex as i have NO CLUE how to figure out how to retrieve my 6 digit pin from that thing.. :/ if anyone could help me with how that works, i'd really really appreciate it.

    thanks!!

    I used hex workshop to find mine (didn't know I didn't need to) and I found it manually by just searching for each number 0-9 until I found a 6 digit clump with just numbers.

    Thankfully, I know a quicker way now. With WinHex, go to Specialist and select Gather Text. You want to setup it to recognize text by 6 successive numbers only.

    If you get multiple hits, try each 6digit number in QPST Service Programming until you find the right one.

    I guess I could see the firewall preventing something. Could also see a setting for another program may help. Sometimes things click without rhyme or reason.

    So is everything working for you? All 3rd party apps, navigator, bbmaps, etc?
    sorry for the late reply but yes everything is working now.

    I gotta get used to checking up on replies in these forums.

    Tyler, I had some issues with functions when I fixed my GPS. Nothing in regards to SMS, could be a minor outage. You can try updating your roaming, programming the phone (I used *22899, don't know your equivalent). You can also try a battery pull and resending your service books.

    Glad to hear it nlerx. Pleasure doing business with you. Next please! =P

    People who are having a problem with UNICDMA detecting their phone. Try this. After you change your port numbers in windows device manager restart your computer. Then start from the beginning. Open Blackberry desktop manager, plug in your phone, open UniCDMA. In other words you need to reboot your computer after you change the port number before the change becomes active.

    Good tip Jocko. I, myself, didn't have that issue. I just unplugged the blackberry, closed the programs I had up for the fix, and started over. Some other users may have more difficulty than I and may not think of a restart.

    I'll add the tip in my guide around that step.

    Thanks for your guide Hero. First time my GPS has worked since I've had the phone. Not that Heartless after all are ya?

    I didn't think of disconnecting the phone and restarting so that may have worked for me as well.
    When in doubt rebout err boot.

    Thanks again for the guide.

    Heh, the name was a little something from way back when. It was appropriate for that time. I kept it. Nice little keepsake. Better than the mundane drivel of xyz123 that keeps popping up.

    Glad you got it working. I also started a List of Programs. Compared to the other Popular Blackberry Programs list, mine is pure gold ^_^. Be sure to check it out, maybe submit some information.
