    Well, was getting ready to respond to your PM & saw this.

    Whenever you have an app issue, one of the first things to check is your theme. Probably half of my issues have been theme-related.

    Did VZW release 4.5 for the 8830WE or are you using the Bell release? If you're using Bell, it isn't VZW tech reps falling off.

    I originally had the Bell version .127, This morning i seen the sprint os thats a 4.5.0.135 which is supposed to give you more free memory and faster browsing. I seen that bbmaps was in my servive book but i could not find it! So i call Tech support and after about twenty min she said that the WE is only supposed to have 4.2 officially through VZW and since i have a higher os it will not support it. She had me convinced that BBMAPS would not work unless i downgraded to their 4.2. Then i remembered someone mentioning that some apps dont show in certain themes a WAAALLLAAA BBMAPS in all it glory!!!!

    You made this statement:

    My response was inferring they aren't dumb - they are not supposed to be giving free advice to correct issues not caused by them.

    If you run another carrier's OS, you do so fully at your own risk & immediately forfeit any device support.
