    The 8100 does not have this included, but the 8130 does.

    Reminder, the VZW 8130 does not have their GPS activated. They have locked it out so you have to get their VZNavigator.~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I saw a way on Verizon's) page about turning on the GPS but after following their steps I had no luck. The info is on the Verizon help page. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Didn't realize VZW locked out the GPS.. I got VZNavigator and just assumed it worked with third-party apps as well.. Doesn't surprise me one bit though.

    Although!!!!!! The new google maps uses network tower triangulation to give you an approximate location. The more towers the more accurate the location. It actually works pretty darn well. Sure its not gps embedded but eventually it will be a very very good alternative. There are many bluetooth gps units are are super small. Search for the pharos gps. Its the size of a credit card even with the bluetooth adapter and VERY accurate.

    I can't get my messenger to add a new person.. i've tried twice to add a pin from T-Mobile.. it hasn't worked and just says "pending" it never notifies the other person... I can't pin message them either.. it just gives me the big red X ... any ideas??

    Are you SURE you AND they have abberyy internet plan.. 99% of the time that's the issue. If you are positive you do(and ill confirm if you like). Resend your service books through wither the t zones portal or on www.tmobile.com.. If that still doesn't fix it, pull the battery. If that doesn't. Contact me directly and well work it out!

    Checked out the link that was mentioned earlier and he was referring to the setting to turn "location on" and "911 only" those settings are only for when you are in a call or if you get hijacked
