    What is the deal with the GPS? I can't seem to get it to work at all. Does anybody know why the GPS doesn't work on the curve?

    Got to http://forums.crackberry.com/f41/rea...v1-0-a-192999/ and use the alltel settuings. Your spl unlock code is 000000. It's worked perfectly on 2 alltel 8330s I have owned.

    Worked on my telus 8330 as well.
    (Different thread, same process)

    Some carriers cripple it to force you to use their gps service. For a small monthly fee of course. :wink:

    For anybody still having GPS troubles on their Curve, even after trying the fixes out there.....I think I must have tried every 'fix' i read about for my 8330m (Alltel with OS 169). My GPS rarely worked...battery pulls...GPSed...QPST fix...nothing seemed to make my GPS work consistently. I downloaded the demo of SPOT for the blackberry and now my GPS locks are instant. I can turn on the demo of SPOT and then use BBMaps..Nav4All..Live Search etc without any troubles.

    Great find, thanks for sharing blueglide. I'm going to post this in the 8330 o/s 5.0 threads. It may help some people unable to get a satellite lock since upgrading.
