    I've been agitated by not getting to use the GPS on my 8830 since I got it. Today I'm even more annoyed by this. It might be worth canx my contract and jumping to Tmo.

    Is there any reasonable hope that Verizon will let me use the hardware within my phone?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Use the hardware within your phone for what? A doorstop?

    GPS is enabled to use with VZW Navigator, and it works well with a number of users praising it.

    So when you purchased your phone did you not know that the GPS function is not available without a separate service from Verizon?

    Its infuriating that I'd have to pay anything extra, since I've already paid for the hardware. I don't really need the GPS so I had gotten over that, but it would be nice to be able to use Beyond 411.

    When I got my BB there was some question about when they'd make the GPS available, but I just assumed that they would. It didn't occur to me that they'd charge me for it a 2nd time.
