    Question BB Maps doesn't work on AT&T??

    Advertisement



    I went to download Blackberry Maps because Poynt won't work with Google Maps and lo and behold Blackberry Maps announces it doesn't work on AT&T. Does anyone know about this and is there any word why, or if AT&T will (sometime) work with BB Maps?


    Strange??!!

    Although it says on the website that BBMaps won't work, download it anyway. It works just fine. ATT does this because they have a deal with Telenav.

    I think AT&T blocks it because they want you to use their GPS navigation program. Some AT&T user can verify this.

    UPDATE: We posted at the same time and I'm corrected in the previous post. Thanks.

    I download it onto my ATT 8310 and it works just fine. I downloaded OTA but no reason it shouldn't work using your PC
