    I'm a happy camper now.

    After complaining bitterly about sprint's slow move to the 87XX platform, I waited for a while before getting mine.

    It arrived in the mail this evening and this was the quickest phone set up I have ever gone through. In 30 mins I had my # working on the new phone, data connectivity and called our BES admins and completed enterprise activation. This is a real good start to the new phone

    I am busy installing a few apps I need and will play around with the GPS features.

    Thanks for the tip on telnav. I wish they had a demo to try before I buy. I may just bite the bullet and sign up tomorrow.

    So far I have installed spot and helloworld for gps apps. I seem to be having trouble with my positioning. Probably because I am indoors (too cold and dark to go outside now...lol) I will try again tomorrow morning on the way to work.

    More updates to follow.

    helloworld gps never loaded the images. It has nothing to do with me being indoors. Other users are reporting the same problem with the application

    I decided to sign up for telnav esp since the first month is free. So far so good. It is working flawlessly.

    Telenav does have a trial, its one month free Telenav, so go ahead and download it, and if you dont like it, cancel. But I promise you there is no other navigation, map application for a BB that can compare to Telenav!

    I also recently picked up a 8703 e. I can't figure out how to make my email messages STOP appearing under the messages section. I figured out how to make the phone messages stop as well as goggle/gmail messages stop appearing...Any guidance?

    Just to let everyone who doesn't already know know, if you want to play around with GPS at no additional charge, give BB Maps a shot...it's not even a trial
    Heres where you can get that, if you want it
    best of luck with your new blackberry!
