BB Maps is not able to render the map. I see only the slanted black lines, and I see
requests being made, but no rendering. The device is 8820 and the GPS seems to
have locked on 4 satellites, and I see the "You are here" callout.
Device - 8820
Device s/w - v184.108.40.206
BB Maps - LBS1.2
I am using Wi-Fi for my connection, and the browser works fine.
I have no SIM, and hence no data plan.
1) Is data plan a real must?
2) If yes, and I do get one tomorrow, will the requests to the backend BB server
made on the slower EDGE network? Or if there is a Wi-Fi router, requestes wil
be made via the Internet?
3) If no, any suggestions why I cannot get the maps to render? One theory is that BB maps
checks for the SIM, and then refuses to render.
If someone has any ideas/suggestions, that will be helpful.
