    GPS on the storm is unlocked. Was reading at work about this last week. The current version is 4.7.0.75. This can be OTA (over the air), you should see an icon on the main screen for it. IT can be done with the DM as well.

    Thought it was unlocked with 4.7.0.65 as well. hmm

    As for the curve. Yes it now unlocked for BBMAPS and VZNAV only. The new version can be found at BlackBerry® Software Updates

    I have a Verizon Curve 8330 and my BBMAPS GPS is unlocked, but no such luck on anything else. BBMAPS is pretty handy though and it works just as good if not better than others. Hopefully Google/Verizon will work together and create a compatible version for us though!
