Is BlackBerry Maps always installed with OS 4.5 and above?

I am trying to test some devices using the DeviceAnywhere Test Center.

 

The application I am testing REQUIRES that Maps be installed.  There also is a requirement that it (Maps) is installed at the time the OS 4.5 is installed - not after.  The APIs are not set up if it is not done this way.

 

But - in the DeviceAnywhere Test Center, I am seeing 4.5 devices without Maps installed.  (And I cannot now install Maps).

 

So, I am trying to understand how this is happening.  And if I re-install the OS, will Maps automatically get installed?

It depends on the carrier. Some carriers have BB Maps in their deck, others don't.

 

Notably, AT&T does not.

Also, users have the option to remove it so don't rely on it's existence on every phone.
