    GPS,

    you sound like you bought a GPS device in Best Buy and you are wondering why it cant get a signal in St Georges, lay off Digicel, would you prefer we regress to Mobility with the Brick Motorola at $2.55 per minute

      Underwriter….point is, why get excited at expensive past dated things?..Bermuda is always been behind the eight ball, never we are in front, setting the standard, we always have to wait for America to lead us.

      Just like when the Grand Stand was completed at our daft looking National Stadium. Out dated looking design with no changing rooms but our Sports Minister at the time was all excited about it.

        This phone has only very recently been released in the U.S. and at the end of the day its up to RIM to determine when Bermuda will have it.
