Blackberry maps - Unknown error

[ Edited ]

Hello,

I just bought a Blackberry Bold 9790 mobile phone and tried to run the maps.

1) Where can I find the Maps icon? It is listed neither in the All bar nor in any of its sub folders (Games, Media, Blackberry). The only way I found how to run the maps is to search for it. So I search for "gps" and then I got "BlackBerry Maps" icon offered.

 

2) When I run the maps from this icon, I got "Unknown error" message. I cannot display any map or search for any location.

 

BlackBerry Maps version is 6.2.0.22

BlackBerry OS version 7.1 (7.1.0.714, Platform 9.16.0.158)

I am connected via WiFi

 

EDIT: I forgot to mention. I was also searching in this forum and found advise to uninstall the maps and then install them again from www.blackberry.com/maps from my mobile browser

Before I encouraged to do so, I opened this address in my phone and got 404 - page not found error

 

Thanks for help, Dan

Re: Blackberry maps - Unknown error

please check the requirements here:

specifically, you need a BlackBerry Data Plan. I see you are connected through Wifi; do you have a data plan?

Aha, I don't have a data plan yet. I will try to set up it and let you know if it helped.

Thanks.
