Default Verizon uncrippling the gps?

Please Login to Remove!

I hear that Verizon is in the works of actually letting people download other gps services for the 8330. Is this true? If I get a 8330 now will I be able to update it later and unlock the gps? Also I heard that Verizon disabled some bluetooth features on the phone what can i not exactly do?

Haven't heard that - you can already download the apps, but won't have use of actual GPS location services without subscribing to VZnav. I don't see VZW removing the lock on the GPS.

I would love to have free use of my GPS without having to subscribe to VZNav, however I do find VZNav to be very handy.
