Google Maps and GPS


Apr 29, 2010, 10:17 PM
I downloaded Google Maps to this phone and while it looks very nice the GPS location feature will not work. What am I missing?

Also, any way to check email instead of the $5/mo 'Mobile Email' application on the phone?

Very nice for a non smartphone otherwise.

I'm having the same problems. I switched from a Treo 750, because I didn't need an extra $30 required monthly bill. I have to say for a non-smartphone, it's quite impressive.

I use hotmail for email. The only way I see avoiding the $5/mo charge is book marking my inbox in my browser. I have a pop3 email account forwarded to my hotmail as well. Not sure how it would handle using hotmail to access the pop3 to my hotmail instead of forwarding it. If I try it out I'll let you know.

Have you found any help with the GPS in Google Maps? I would love to use it too. Thanks for the post.

Thanks for your input.
As for GPS and Google, it appears ATT may prevent it from working completely (They want you to subscribe to Navigator?). Another forum had posted something to this affect.

It is a nice 'feature' phone otherwise, and quite thin.
