YES, the GPS receivers in cell phones work totally independent from the phone service you use. Sometimes you might need to update your GPS receiver (mostly every 72 hours) using wifi, 3G or hooking it up to a computer with an internet connection. But if the GPS software is on there, such as Telenav or TOM TOM it will work.
Is their something like google maps turn by turn navigation for iphone 4?
The only app I've seen that does what you're asking is the TomTom app and it does cost a ton, unless of course you have a jail broken Iphone and the idea of downloading apps illegally doesn't bother you then you're in luck.

How do you get free GPS or free maps on a Blackberry Curve?
Nothing in life is free. The maps program that comes with a BB is free as is Google Maps. However, you have to have a data plan to load the actual maps. Also, most service providers (like AT&T, T-Mobile) charge an additional fee for GPS service.

Yes, the Telenav service is $10 per month. It's not necessary in order to use GPS, but you do need some type of data plan for this feature. The Telenav subscription gives you access to a service that gives you spoken turn-by-turn directions.
Hi I was just wondering if the att blackberry unlimited data plan includes telenav, MusicId, etc.?
It doesn't include Telenav, but Google maps is a free app you can download that is pretty comparable (although it doesn't have turn by turn directions). Its $9.99 for unlimited routes if you wanted to pay for it. I'm not sure what MusicId is though...
Cheap Bluetooth GPS reciever (Palm Centro/Telenav)?
I have the iGPS-500 $70.00
Works great with my Treo and all other PPC's/PDA'S I have had.
Friend locater is basically like having a tracking device but what sux is they have to have telenav too and they have to OK it for you to track them. as far as buying a map i have know idea what your talking about as long as you pay the 10 dollar monthly fee and have unlimited Internet you can use it as much as you want i had it it worked great for work but its cheaper in the long run to just get nav in your car.
I don't think you can get telenav for free. They wan your money! But you can download the free google maps app and it works fine. It will turn your GPS enabled cell into a navigation device just as well as telenav does and it is absolutely free except for any data charged your cell provider will impose on you.
on blackberry phones, does telenav maps use the internet just to be on it?
You have to connect to the telenav service to view the maps if that's what you mean. There are no maps stored on your phone( like other GPS systems). If you are using just the maps the googlemaps application(free) is much faster. But if you need the turn by turn directions telenav is really good.
I'm not actually Familiar with AT&T's service,
But in regards to GPS enabled phones,
as far as I know, Sprint's Telenav or GPS Navigation,
as I've seen it on the ad, it gives you turn by turn direction in anywhere you wanna go, if you have the PDA or smart phones, you'll be able to have 3D images of the roads and stuffs like that, and there's also a female voice that will tell you everything you'll need to do while driving, like. "Turn left on Edmund Halley Road, half-kilometer ahead."
And not only directions on the road, it'll also give you nearest shops, ATMs, banks, or any establishments per your request.
And I think Sprint hasn now a new plan for only $99.99/month
for unlimited access for ALL services.
on the blackberry curve, if i downloaded Telenav maps, will i be charged with internet on my phone?
I don't believe the application will really even be able to connect. However, if it does, then you will be charged per kilobyte that you use. That can add up really fast, especially with mapping applications. If you are going to be using TeleNav often I recommend adding a data plan.
Call your service provider and have them remove the feature from your account. If by chance you have AT&T you can also do it yourself by logging in to your account at www.wireless.att.com and remove the feature yourself
How to delete telenav app for boost mobile phones?
apps like that are called bloatware, software the carrier adds to the phone that can NOT be removed under normal circumstances. If it is an android you can root it and then remove the offending apps but rooting voids the warranty of the phone
Can I get the BlackBerry Bold GPS to work without subscribing to TeleNav?
Hi - you absolutely can use the on-board GPS on your Bold without paying for Telenav! (but Telenav offers different services...)
If you use Google maps, fire it up and hit "My location" from the menu.. It'll tell you initially that it's found your location within 1000 meters or so. That's the location based on cell towers... Give it a few seconds and then it should tell you your location is accurate to between 2 and 10 meters, for example. That means the GPS has kicked in. (When you installed Google maps, you likely clicked a button that said you OK'd "My Location" to track you. If you didn't, you may have to just do a Google Maps re-install.)
The big difference between Telenav and Google Maps is that Google Maps doesn't offer turn-by-turn navigation like one would expect by using an in-car GPS system that uses Telenav software.
However, if you're driving your car -- and I would never, ever use a mobile while driving :) -- you can watch your position change every few seconds as the satellites track your position.
