    Pearl 8130 - Verizon

    From what I've read, Verizon has disabled the GPS function on BB phones so that you use their navigation system for an additional 9.99 a month......is there any way around this?

    I'm sure some genius out there can bypass the verizon block........

    Seems wrong that a telephone company can prevent me from using all of my phones features........seems very illegal.

    No. And it is against forum rules to post hacks or work arounds for paid services.

    I suggest you read John Clark's post on memory management. It might help you out.

    I know nothing about hacks.

    You can use an external bluetooth GPS with Verizon fine.

    I asked me brother who is a lawyer and explained the situation with Verizon and the internal GPS and he said there appeared to be nothing illegal about it.

    It sounds like he wants to have full access to the device that he paid for and owns. I see no problem with that. He did not say that he wanted a way to steal the navigation service from Verizon.
