    Blackberry Maps, pandora, today theme

    Advertisement



    I have a few questions mainly regarding the apps on the Blackberry Bold. (I've been seasoned in blackberries since the 8700) Anyway one has anyone been able to get blackberry maps on there ATT Bold? I tried the geotag answer I found on google with no luck. Second has anyone heard any new details about Pandora making a blackberry app? Three have there been any free today themes for the Bold released yet other than Bold Autimn? I have that but my calendar events don't show up thus making the today theme kind off useless to me.

    from what i've read at a couple other sites... there is no BBMaps with newer AT&T OS's.. they've disabled it.

    google maps is a pretty good alternative though

    Don't say that, I have had my Bold for a week and BB maps is on there, I used it today as a matter of fact! I have not upgraded my bold either, it has what came on it .167.

    Is it an AT&T Branded Bold? Mine didn't come with Blackberry Maps.

    It is an ATT branded Bold. If you look under service books you should see a BB Maps entry, click it then hit the menu key show HRT, scroll to the highlighted one and click the menu key again, click register. That's what I did and it showed up.

    Hmmm, there is a link on here for the OTA or web download of BB maps. You can try that and see if that worksm.~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I've done that and nothing, does it just appear when you hit the menu or is it in a specific folder?

    It might show up in the applications folder but, mine just showed up on the main screen. It looks like a compass.

    Thank you NovaLovr66.
    I had some difficulty with the BBMaps. I had installed it from another link that seemed to corrupt the original files with older ones causing me to get an error each time. I then uninstalled BBMaps from the Applications list. Then I had to figure out where to get the 4.6 version of BBMaps for my Bold. If you download the current .167 OS release and install it on your desktop, then it will put them on your PC in the Common files area. You can use desktop manager to reinstall the original parts. After that I used your trick and all is good with the world. Thanks again.
