Maps cannot receive data...

[ Edited ]

Hello !!

 

Something very strange happens to me and I'm very embarrassed...  I try to explain

I live in China but previously, BB hadn't service provided by China Telecom, so same than everybody here, I has a BB account in Hong Kong.
For daily communication, I have also a Pocket PC with a China Telecom SIM card.
Since 1 month, as BB is now available in China, I applied for a BB account for my China Telecom account.

So I have 2 SIM cards : 1 in Hong Kong for BB account and 1 from China Telecom for also BB account.

Here what is my problem.
When I insert my China Telecom SIM Card in my PPC, MAPS runs perfectly (maps are downloaded, location is provided, ..)

This is the same when I insert my BB HK SIM card in my PPC, everything is perfect !

 
With my Curve device, there is a problem.

With my BB HK SIM card inserted, in Maps, maps are downloaded and location is detected.
But when I insert my China Telecom SIM Card in my Curve, it doesn't work. Data cannot be downloaded whereas no parameters are changed. That's very strange and very frustrating !

 Does anybody can help me ?

Hi and welcome to the forums!

This is a link for the BBmaps features page.  

According to the Chart, BBmaps contains no data for China, but it does for Hong Kong.

I hope this helps you.

Thanks,

You may be better served by resolving this thread and moving it to the Blackberry Device software forum,

They discuss the features and applications of the device OS. BB maps would be a discussion topic.

I would think you would get more specific information there.

Thanks,

OK, well noted. I will go to the other forum.

Anyway, many thanks for your advices.

 

In addition, even if the coverage of maps are not OK in China, the satellite view is perfect !
