just bought a blackberry curve and know nothing about it. I went to google maps and clicked download, and it finished downloading and now I do not know how to use google maps or find where it is on my phone. How do I find where it is on my phone? (When I finished downloading it asked if I wanted to "run" or something else, I checked the other box - Also, if I go back to google and try to download google maps again it says it was already downloaded on my phone!)
I do know how to use google maps on a computer, just not on my phone.

Assuming that it downloaded and installed ok on your Curve, the first step is to find the application icon. Depending on your theme you're using, you may need to press the menu button to display the full list of applications. Do that by pressing the button to the right of the trackball (with the dots).
The google maps icon is kind of orange and looks like a little folded map. After you click on that, it's pretty straight forward. Click on the menu button to search for a location and get directions.
Hope that's not too basic of instructions. Besides from email, google maps is the thing I use the most. Verizon cripples the GPS, but the approximate location based on cell towers is still super useful. Enjoy!
