    Sorry.. hijacking.

    You guys speak a lot about turn by turn navigation... I have a Sprint 8830 with GPS and I love the maps... but I don't see any turn by turn driving directions on it. Is this a program I have to download? If so which program... and is it free to use once downloaded???

    Verizon is now charging you for every key stroke you make on their devices. And everytime you power the device on or off you are charged and additional $.88 cents.

From other reading, it appears as though the Verizon BBs would NOT be able to integrate with an external keyboard or external GPS unit.
    The bluetooth profiles available on your VZW BB will depend a bit based on the model. I know BT GPS receivers work with the 8830. I'm not sure about the 8703e.

    Hmm, I think someone already addressed this in this thread:

    In general, the more features you expect from the GPS app the more it will cost. Id recommend Telenav based on my experiences with BB GPS apps.

    What? You get charged for powering off and on your phone? That's crazy if true.
