Re: get current location

To use any of these options I think you will need to be on a Blackberry plan and have allowed the appropriate permissions and setting in GPS. 


You can check the GPS settings by doing Options --> Device --> Location Settings.  You will need Location Services on and I would allow the 'location Data' Setting and enable Location Aiding. 


For permissions, check Options --> Device --> Application Management.  Select you app, the Edit permissions.  Make sure that location Data is Allowed.


Re Blackberry plan - well you know if you have that.


Hope this helps.
