You need to get MAPS to work first. Check out the HOW TO here: http://supportforums.blackberry.com/rim/board/mess
Also, for free MSN/AOL etc... get Webmessenger. It's free! Uses your data package which is unlimited (up to 250Mb / month) on Orange.
Hope this helps...?

While trying to get blackberry maps working on my Orange UK phone I saw the article below. Orange Customer Service confirm the facts in the article and refused to take back the phone since it has been over 7 business days.
Has anyone else had issues with Blackberry Maps on Orange UK Bolds???
What alternate solutions would you suggest
