    Verizon is not enabling the gps function at this time nor loading another vendor's OS onto your BB won't enable it either sorry. Just keep an eye out for VZ Navigator and then the GPS will be enabled. Just whenever Verizon decides it is working and wants our money.

    It will happen within time...I'd say with confidence around 11/1...VZNav will be the product..like it or not, it does provide a GPS solution

    the only way is to change provider ID of your phone, then your GPS will be enabled on your VZW8830

    How do you change the provider Id? Will that affect other functions?

    I had really hoped that someone would've figured this out by now....Its sad to have a GPS that you can't even use. But all my 8830 users feel the same pain.

    Yes lets please figure out a fix for this. I requested on the phone with them many times to unlock it. Everyone keep calling in and eventually enable it.
