What am I doing wrong? TheCamera shows thatit can't find my location ad flickr cantFind my location with vz nav open or closed.
probably vzw did the usual thing and block that feature too
My blackberry is anti-Obama Bin Llama
But I pay to use vz nav so what gives?

Are you indoors when you're taking pictures? I'm pretty sure I've seen mine get a lock. I think it has to make a lock before you take the photo (which can take a while).
i've never been able to get a lock for pictures. It appears that the phone's GPS is locked w/o some sort of translation from VZ Nav or BB Maps. I camera application probably cannot access the GPS signal.
as far as i can tell vzw dosnt block gps, which would make sence since they opened it on there global phones a while ago. i might try from outside
Once you go Black(berry) you'll never go back!!!

Blackberry built GPS INTO thier phones for free use as a feature, verizon locks this. BBMaps works on the Storm, other applications do not. My guess is that verizon had to make a concession in order to get the Storm exclusive.
