    gps and more

    Advertisement



    I have a couple things to address here. One is there any way to activate my gps? I have verizon and hate them for not letting me use it.
    Next I have been having trouble with my browser all around, but I can not get pinstack to work for me, What is the mobile address?
    Last I have a serious speed problem with my blackberry mainly when I am using the browser/menu but really anytime. I have used the memory cleaner as well as the alt lglg and clearing my logs. That seems to help but only temp. I have plenty of free file and I also make sure I never have other programs running. This all started not as soon as but after I upgraded from 4.3 to 4.5.077.
    O and to all you theme creators out there please check out my mario request in the 8130 theme section. Thanks to all that help with my problems!!

    i use the launcher to go to pinstack and its still bringing up the desktop look. I know I downloaded the update for the launcher recently but mine looks nothing like the one here. I dont get it i need help..... lol maybe i will uninstall the launcher and re download, but i really think my problem is deeper then that

    One more thing the only recently downloaded programs are themes and opera, becuase i am having so much trouble with the browser

    Alright, check in your browser options that your emulation mode is set to BlackBerry. It seems that the site is not recognizing you are on a mobile device and it isn't switching to wap mode.

    Also, as far as GPS goes, sorry but you are pretty much out of luck. I say 'pretty much' for two reasons. You can either pony up the 10 bucks a month for vznavigator, which in my opinion is NOT worth it. Or you can do some searching here on the stacks and look for a thread where someone posted about filing an online complaint. I can't remember the website but I did it a while back and 24 hours later received a call from the home office and talked them into giving me 6 free months of vznavigator. But again, its not really worth the trouble.

    I would recommend downloading google maps or buying a GPS puck and hooking that up with a free GPS program on your pearl.
    There are rumors that vzw will unlock GPS soon but I give that the same chance as a snowball in hades. Especially after them shutting down the wifi on the storm so they can continue to nickel and dime their customers to death.


    That's my 2 cents.

    Also, make sure you have 'support javascript' deselected in your browser options. That should speed your phone up a bit and eleviate a lot of the hourglassing.
