    Thumbs up Another Verizon 8703e owner

    Advertisement



    Hello everyone,

    I got a Verizon BB 8703e yesterday and am in the process of customizing it to work with Linux. Synchronization works now via ScheduleWorld, email forwarding is on and I am configuring the Blackberry as a bluetooth modem right now.

    Too bad big bad Verizon doesn't enable GPS on the 87xx

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    Yes; I keep reading that disabling the GPS on VZW 8703e is a concious act by Verizon Wireless. It's also strange, considering they offer the very beautiful and powerful VZ Navigator (a far more elegant program than TeleNav) on just about every "kid-model" phone they sell. Can anyone "enable" the GPS on VZW 8703e phones?

    Hi - I'm also new to the 8703e world. I already had a Bluetooth GPS "hockey puck" that worked with my Palm for Tom Tom. It also works great with Blackberry Maps, which I downloaded from RIM. So while the GPS isn't built in, I can report that GPS via Bluetooth works fine.
