    Is there a way to download maps from Nokia without a WiFi. When I tried it said 250MB was too big for phone internet connection. I dont use WiFi at home or elsewhere.

    Any ideas?

    I couldn't find a way, which is really lame, especially for those with Internet Sharing on their plans. I could, you know, connect a laptop or tablet to the phone and download a 500MB file fine, but the phone won't.

    In all seriousness, I'm positive it is because there are barely any unlimited providers anymore. Verizon and AT&T, the largest networks, allow (default) 2GB. I believe it was a good intention from Microsoft and Nokia to try to alert users that this is a somewhat substantial amount of data to download using their phone's data plan.

    Thanks for the comments.

    I have an unlimted data plan on o2 in the UK so dont have to worry abouy file size. Hate it that everyone presumes you have WiFi. I have direct wired boradband at 17MB and dont want to use WiFi.

    Same here. Verizon unlimited and I dislike being forced to connect to Wifi to download. May be fixed in a future update, but I'm not counting on it. I bet we'll see a hack before then.

    Even pre data caps, most carriers limited you to 20mb or less over data.

    WP7 users used to be able to tether using Zune.

    Not sure if/how that can be done on WP8.
