    Google Maps and T-mobile

    Advertisement



    Hello! I recently purchased the White BB Pearl, and I having problem getting google maps to work. Here is what I have done so far:

    1. Changed by APN to be: wap.voicestream.com with no U/P
    2. Turned off my phone, removed battery, replaced battery, turned phone back on.
    2. Went to the google maps site on my BB by going to T-Zones, clicking on Go To, typed in the address, and clicked the link to download Google Maps
    3. When the message came up saying that it was not a trusted source, I clicked yes to continue
    4. When the installation was complete I clicked Run

    It then appears that it is loading up, but goes to another screen and prints:

    Error:
    null

    I have installed Opera and Google Talk without any problems, but I cannot get Google Maps to work. I have also tried to going to Options->Advanced Options->Applications->Google Maps and resetting my firewall settings. I have also tried to put in my username and password that I use on the T-mobile website without any luck.

    Does anyone have any further suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Check if in Options/Advanced Options/Applications/Highlight Google/Menu/Edit Default Permissions/ are all set to "Allow"

    If not, change that and try again.
    Sorry i cant help much hopefully someone will be here with a better knowledge.

    Check the 02 settings, are they same for TMO (US2)? Check here...

    If this wont work I really dont know what the problem is, one last thing that might do the fix is reinstalling your OS.

    Hmm it should be somewhere in options I dont see it there. U might wonna call TMO and ask them about it. If nothing works, just reinstall your OS. It might be that theres a problem with your current OS

    Re: Google Maps and T-mobile

    I just installed Maps as part of their new Service offering (http://mobile.google.com/ in your BB browser), and it works right off the bat without any problems -- I already had the APN set, nothing else had to be done.

    I'm on the $60 BB Minutes & Mail T-Mobile plan, which offers a higher level of unlimited internet access than t-zones, just FYI. Latest official T-Mobile firmware as well.
