Verizon updates Touch Pro OS, unlocks GPS and adds Visual Voicemail?
It appears that Verizon has made good on its promise to unlock the GPS function in their version of the HTC Touch Pro. According to a report in, Big Red will be issuing firmware version 1.08 which will allow applications like Google Maps to access the handset's GPS. The upgrade also will add Visual Voicemail to the phone, although to activate it will cost you $3 per month. And lastly, the upgraded firmware adds EVRC-B codec support which allows for calls to be handled better on the network during high-demand situations.

Late last year, the carrier promised that it would unlock the GPS function on the Touch Pro, the Samsung Saga and the Samsung Omnia. Back in December, as we reported, the BlackBerry Curve 8330 and Pearl 8130 became the first Verizon handsets to have their GPS unlocked.
