Re: Storm 9530...BB Maps?

Are you getting an error message when you try? What is it?

 

Are you certain it is not already there?

Re: Storm 9530...BB Maps?

Many carreris ONLY enable BBMaps via a push of a service book to the device.

 

If you have looked for ALL hidden applications, and in ALL of the folders (applications folder), then you might not have the servcie book needed to run it.

 

A great alternative is Google Mobile Maps.

Re: Storm 9530...BB Maps?

As mention before, BB Maps and often time BB Browser is only offer if the phone is registered to have it. Sometime it is missing by accident. You could try to initiate the registration by doing this...

 

On the Blackberry, go to:

Options -> Advanced Options -> Host Routing Table

Scroll through the list until you find the one entry that is in BOLD. Highlight it, click the BB Button, and click Register Now.

 

You should get an email on your phone that it is now registered. Afterwards, give it a few minutes and check of BB Browser / BB Maps is there.

Re: Storm 9530...BB Maps?

I tried this and it didnt' work.  I also have seen that many people have been posting this on other message boards but none of the advice/instructions have worked for me so far.
