Verizon Blackberry 8830 GPS unlocked?

A birdie told me that Verizon had quietly released a firmware upgrade for the Blackberry 8830 in the last two days that reportedly unlocks the GPS that I have been so vocal about.  The upgrade is over 88 MB big and I haven’t had time to apply it yet so I have to get it applied tonight and see if the GPS is working now.  The timing fits with what I was told by Verizon about the GPS enabling so hopefully this is it.  I’ll report back when I can do so with first-hand information.
