I am using the MapField API and have noticed occasionally it does not draw correctly. Sometimes it does not complete drawing of some streets. Other times it shows "Data not available" with partial streets underneath. Data should be available as it will draw it correctly most times. There are no error messages and I also see this occasionally in the simulator. On devices its seen definitely in 4.6 and possibly also in 4.5.
I'd attach an image if i knew how.
Has any body seen this? It happens with some frequency.

I'm not able to see your screen shot.
Does this always occur at specific locations and/or at specific zoom levels? This can happen if the BlackBerry device moves out of coverage or is unable to download the map information to display (network busy). This shouldn't apply to the BlackBerry Simulator though (unless you are simulating an out of coverage situation).

Here are some images showing what I am seeing. This is on the Bold (actual device).
Incomplete map from map field api
Complete map showing roads correctly.

What is the full 4 digit BlackBerry handheld software version are you testing on? You can find this under Options, About on the BlackBerry Smartphone.
Are both screen shots using the same zoom level? Is there any event that triggers the additional information seen in the second image to be drawn (i.e. zoom in/out, scroll, etc..)? Have you seen any steps that trigger this behaviour? How often do you see this?
