Telus allowing downloading of apps for LG Dare? Just heard this at a LG Dare forum, and I’ve confirmed it by downloading mgmaps, opera mini, google maps into my LG Dare.
MGMaps works for me (though it’s hobbled by graphics problems).
Go to http://wap.mgmaps.com/ on your phone browser.
Click on Download MGMaps version 1.3x (stable): LG version v1.39.21 [unsigned jad]
The unsigned jad file works.
You can try the development 1.4 version if you are brave.
Opera Mini I downloaded from m.operamini.com. LG-Dare info
Google Maps is downloadable via http://m.getjar.com, but touchscreen doesn’t seem to work. Go to http://m.getjar.com on your phone – click on Platform= Java (J2ME) – on the top search bar, type in "google maps" – click on google maps (first link) and download.
Looks great, but doesn’t work with touchscreen, so ultimately useless.

Adorei o google maps
Had to laugh. The Dare was one of highest rated Verizon models ever introduced … and they totally crippled the app development process thus ensuring developers would move on to greener pastures in a heartbeat … which they did. Like grandpa used to say, “You can drag’em to water but you can’t mak’em drink!”
