Ok, so I'm a total n00b and I've been watching this thread for a long time, hoping and praying that someone would figure this out. I have Verizon and hate that no one can get around this. I wish I had the tech know how to contribute and help but unfortunately I don't. I did have an idea though...what if a gps chip was pulled out of an old Q that actually did have gps, and popped into the Verizon Q. I have no idea about how to do this or if its even possible, just wanted to throw it out there so that someone much smarter than I am, might be able to do something along those lines. just a though.
