    I have installed this on my Verizon 8830WE and it works like a champ. The GPS even works with BBMaps now. Google Maps still doesn’t see the GPS, but I’ll settle for BBM when I need location tracking. Thanks Bell!

    this new version has not seem to resolve the 2 second delay while answering calls.. also why leave the wireless uppgrade option half way.. might as well upgrade it completely..
