The GPSSettings class is used to pass authentication information to the wireless network. In order for an application to make use of the GPSSettings.setPDEInfo method on a BlackBerry device using the Verizon Wireless® network, the application must be signed by the Research In Motion® (RIM®) Runtime (RRT) key. The PDE (Position Determining Entity) information required by the GPSSettings is supplied by Verizon® through Verizon’s developer program.
Failure to sign your application with this key will result in an error stating that the application is attempting to access a secure API and the application will fail to run.
For more information on code signing and signature keys, please see this article.
Note: The following criteria are valid on a BlackBerry 8830 smartphone on the Verizon Wireless network.
