    m.blackberry.com > where to buy > downloads > get bb maps. It is just the ribbon file to make the bb maps icon show up in your apps list. Bb maps is installed by default with every load and can be launched via quicklaunch or poynt.

    Basically it is already on your phone you just need the lbs_ribbon file which makes the icon show up...........Visit the below site from your phones browser.

    Is your carrier AT&T? They had BlackBerry Maps, since they want you to subscribe to their Telenav.

    If you buy QuickLaunch, which is a very useful app with a lot of great features, you can open BB Maps using QuickLaunch.

    Go to apps and delete. The best way to get bbmaps on your phone is to download your Os amd plug into dm. It will recognize the files you are missinggand ask if you want certain ones back.

    U can wipe amd reload your Os. Can't hurt. Before so I suggest a security wipe through options. Then see what happens. First back up your device
