    I tried it with BB maps and it worked; haven't tried it with any other programs yet.

    So how do you get it to work with the curve? Meaning Do I have to go to GPS and change from 911 only? Do I have to change a setting in BB maps?

    Change GPS to Location On. Go to Maps and make sure it says BB Maps. You should be good to go.

    Yes. The GPS is unlocked for OS4.5. That shouldn't be a problem, since 4.5 has been released for the 8330.

    HOWEVER, it will only work with VZNavigator and BBMaps...no other 3rd party app will work with it, that I know of (yet?).....

    Verizon had a press release on how they were going to unlock GPS now. Between that and Sprint finally getting MMS (OS 4.6) things are looking better for us.
