How to add GPS to a Curve 8520

I found out a way to activate GPS on a blackberry curve 8520, all you need is this:


First of all you will need to connect with bluetooth to a computer Mac Desktop, just for a while you will not need it afterwards. Turn on your BB bluetooth and find the Mac computer and pair to it. that is it then go to BB options and Advanced settings>Location settings> and turn on all location options, in the top it will show the Mac computer you connected to leave it like that. then go to facebook app or other GPS app like BB protect and it will show your cell phone location. !! nice
