Hi, if you open the browser on your BlackBerry go to www.google.com/gmm and you can download and install Google Maps.

You should take your sim card back to where you originally downloaded the application from, install it on that phone,  then bring it back over to the Blackberry.

If you want a better program then Google Maps for the bb, I would recommend Live Search from Microsoft.  Check out:

The Live Search application is only available as a beta release for BlackBerry, also it only works in the United States at this point in time.  To install Live Search on your device go to http://wls.live.com from your Blackberry Browser.

Jdera, if "Mostafa_ElSadek" the author or other readers aren't in the US Live Search won't work so I was making them aware.  Also you posted a link to an old press release saying the software will be available shortly (i.e. it already available).

You can go to http://www.google.com/mobile/products/maps.html#p=blackberry 
and enter your phone number then follow the steps provided in the message google sends

Or from you phones browser go to m.google.com (omit the http://)
Choose Maps and Select Install

Once installed the application will be located in your downloads folder
