I may add that many BB models used a GPRS based service for GPS, and thus are not true GPS units - Curve for sure!

Cell phones nowadays use assisted GPS to get faster position lock. It does work without a data connection in other phones with many apps, but it doesn't in most BB apps. But more than a hardware disability its a BB firmware restriction.

Since BB maps are not helpful for india, inav by MMI seems to be a good option. I searched for inav here and found reviews for year 2009. Anyone got it installed on BB in 2010 ??

Hmm. I have a BB Bold 2 9700 which i use on Vodafone BIS (postpaid connection). I have a prepaid card with Vodafone which i intend to use with BB Curve 8520 but not with BB service (not even BB Prosumer Lite). Can i use the browser and apps with Vodafone Live / GPRS? Any idea?

I 'm looking to buy BB in immediate future. I am considering BB 9300 Curve 3G & BB 9700 Bold. I haven't used BB ever so this is a first for me, my initial impression is that 9300 Curve with its individual separated keys was easier to use and type on. There were less typo's while used 9300 when compared to 9700. Other consideration is the budget, around 20K INR owing to other big ticket purchases lined up on the family front.
I had a couple of questions upfront
a. Is there a perceptible performance difference between 9300 and 9700 i.e. while using Email and other software/ apps, owing to difference in processor speed and OS version ?
b. What are the negatives of BB 9300 / BB9700 ?
c. I have heard BB models and mobiles on the whole are cheaper in NOIDA compared to rest of NCR, is that true? Whats good price to expect for both 9300 and 9700 and where to buy them from ?
EDIT : I have checked up the prices at CROMA Delhi,
BB 9700 BOLD = 26,990 INR
BB 9300 Curve 3G = 19,990 INR
d. I am due to travel to Mumbai for work, would I get BB any cheaper in mumbai than NCR and if yes, where from ?
e. The memory on both can be increased using SD card, whats maximum memory for either of the models ?
f. I have a frd in US who can pick up stuff from there for me, any suggestions as to where to buy an unlocked BB 9700 from in US ? I tried wirefly.com while its good place to buy from, its selling the replacement BB9700 at 500 USD and thereabouts, not sure if its unlocked for usage in India ?

*HOWEVER* you CANNOT use any app that connects to the BB service so you have to get the generic chat and messenger programs like I'm plus and browsers like bolt and opera.
