    To make sure sure you have installed the app go to options, advanced options,applications and check if you can see bbmaps on that list
    If not you will ned to reinstall the app

    At&t doesnt like us to use bbmaps, it does show as its installed but it is not there, delete it and look around for the backdoor version, if i recall there are 2 ways to get around it. I just ended up deleting it and going with google maps

    It does work, just not on your phone you have to edit or delete the vendor file so it doesnt know to lock the app.

    There was a 3rd party app that i used at one time that you have to have bbmaps installed to use it, and during install it actually gave you a link to download bbmaps and enable usage, but i cant remeber what it was. it was one of those location sharing apps..

    Here you go, this should help you either way you want to go, unlock vendor themes or the third party app...


    You can uninstall the third party app after you try it.. (I did lol) Note please try it on the bold and let us know if it works.

    Here is a third way and someone said it did work on the bold

    other than that search for unlock vendor themes

    I unlocked all the other vendor themes and got the bb maps to work, so I can back this post because I have experienced this myself. I've done this on about 40 different bb's even at&ts 4.5 for the curve doesn't have bb maps. They want you to use their navigator, but who the hell wants to pay for something when there's a good free version right, lol
