Apparently Verizon and The Grinch aren't in cahoots after all. Instead, it seems Big Red is leaning over to Santa's side of the spectrum and has unlocked GPS functions for Curve and Pearl users. So far reports are in that GPS is working on 8330 & 8130 devices running OS 4.5. I have tested Blackberry Maps on my 8330 running 184.108.40.206 and it pinpointed my office exactly. Perhaps a bit overzealous I fired up Google Maps with no such luck. More of a Google issue I would assume, but my location is still found to be only within 1700m. We can't have it all I guess. Unfortunately still no love for the 8830. Are you a Verizon Customer? Let us know if GPS is working for you.
