Want GPS capabilites without an ATT plan
I'm in the process of buying a used 3GS, however I do not want to purchase service from AT&T. Mainly I will use the phone for its WI-Fi functions.
How do I identify if the phone has GPS capabalities?
Does the GPS capability have to be turned on by AT&T?
What does "unlocking" a used phone do?

Hi, what about if you have a GPS application loaded such as CoPilot Live or NDrive that contain the maps already? I have an iPhone 3G currently (hand me down - but currently using as an iPod Touch without any phone/data plan). I have those applications and the GPS doesn't work even with those applications. It shouldn't need to have the data on for the basic GPS to work in theory. Would jailbreaking or unlocking the phone give you the ability to use the basic GPS with GPS apps that come with the preloaded maps? Has anyone tried this or can confirm that it would work?
