    If it's like my Curve on AT&T, the GPS itself doesn't need to be activated as that is a feature of the device. If you're talking about an actual navigation application, then there are several free applications that you can use with your onboard GPS:

    Google Maps
    Nav4All
    AmazeGPS

    Just to name a few.....

    Hope this helps!

    Nothing. They are pointing to the sky while dipping their hand in your pocket.
