    do you have a data plan with your carrier cause it will take some time for it to load. But google maps is way 1 billion times better than BB maps

    The BBMaps and Google Maps program both require a data plan to function correctly. They both download maps "on-the-fly" so it doesn't suck up memory storing maps. So if it can't download anything, it is gonna look kinda funny.

    Until your Data plan is active, you won't be able to see anything on Maps. It pulls the info down through the Data network. After you get your plan tomorrow, it will work fine. I agree with getmore4life, Google Maps is way better.

    That's your problem.

    You know you can call to have a BB data plan added, right? A store CSR probably won't know much unless you're lucky and run across one that is actually familiar with BB's.
