after wm6 upgrade


Mar 24, 2008, 7:36 AM
I have the blackjack and recently did the win mo 6 upgrade. I know that this phone does not have the hardware requirements to do gps but, when I open up google maps it shows my approximate location. Does anyone know how they are doing this? Is it triangulated via cell sites or the location of the nearest tower? Also has anyone noticed any change in battery life after the upgrade?

It's the location of the nearest tower. It's really handy isn't it? I don't know how I lived without it before. Oh yeah, I remember, I had to look at the exit signs for the nearest city, and type that in. Yikes!

If anything, after the WM6 upgrade, my battery life seemed better...but hard to compare, because I did it only a week after getting a Blackjack off eBay.

Google maps with the WM6 upgrade rocks!!

Don't feel stupid, my friend. Most things about cell phones are learned by trial and error.
