    I am debating between 2 phones:

    BlackBerry 8310
    BlackBerry 8520

    There are only slight differences between the two. Click the links above to be taken to the pages to get see more info. I am going through Cincinnati Bell Wireless. The problem I am having is with the GPS. I want to have some sort of GPS system on the phone but I don't want to pay the $10/month fee for telenav.

    The Question:
    If I get the phone with GPS but don't pay for telenav, can I still get some type of GPS system on the phone for free. I've heard of google maps, mapquest navigator, Bbmaps, infospace, amAze GPS, TrekBuddy, and nav4all but I don't know if that really offers any good navigation features (plus I don't know which of the 2 phones I can and cannot use the programs on).

    What do you guys recommend? I mean, if I get the 8520 can I still get some kind of GPS software on there by unlocking the phone or is the 8310 the only one that comes with a GPS system in it?

    Thanks so much.

    Google maps will work with your gps, or by using the cell towers to estimate your location. I usually leave the gps off just because I dont need the continual battery drain. I have the 8310.
