I'm not able to view Blackberry Map

I'm using wi-fi connection and I dont have any service providers. As I tried invoking the Map application, I'm getting error "This application requires data connection and some blackberry device requires re-configuration to work properly". whether a service provider is really required to view map?

Re: I'm not able to view Blackberry Map

Yes, the BlackBerry Data Plan is required for BlackBerry Maps to function.

 

The error you got does not lie.

Re: I'm not able to view Blackberry Map

Thank you, sanders. I have another doubt too, what makes the application to restrict from displaying the map and can we include google map instead of blackberry map?

Re: I'm not able to view Blackberry Map

Note: I'm not a developer. Are you seeking applicaiton development advice? I couldn't tell as you had posted in a couple different forum section.

 

But as far as I know, Google Maps also requries a data connection, other than just WiFi.

 

Someone else might have further information.
