Verizon has released a new version of firmware for the BlackBerry Pearl 8130 and Curve 8330. This new OS version 188.8.131.52 allows users with a Verizon Peral and Curve to use the GPS function via BlackBerry Maps instead of VZW Navigator. Unfortnantly it seems you still can’t use the Google maps application. At this time it isn’t sure if Verizon/RIM unlocked the GPS by mistake or not.
