after obtaining a trial activation code, the US version of the software hangs on my BB Curve. The UK version runs but doesn't seem to be very useful since i'm in the US.

IF USING WAYFINDER NAVIGATOR 7, MUST I PURCHASE A RECEIVER FROM THEM OR CAN I USE THE BUILT IN GPS WITH THE BB8310??

....but will the GPS work if you have Verizon cell service. At the moment I can not have GPS work on any platform on my 8830?!
