Today, BlackBerry starts seeding a new Maintenance release to its BB 10.1 OS. The update has a version number of v10.1.0.4537 and itís a bug-and-fixes update that only adds a handful of truly new features.
Back in May, we saw BlackBerry announce the official availability of the BlackBerry 10.1 update to the BlackBerry Z10 smartphone (the Q10 already had it at launch). Now, the company has a second go at this one, refining the user experience and adding some minor new features.
Both the BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 are able to receive the new update over Wi-Fi. Interestingly, the BlackBerry Q5 smartphone is not mentioned in the changelog.
Of course, availability is region-specific and the 10.1 Maintenance release will initially be available only to customers in the Asia Pacific, Canada, and EMEA.
Latin America users will be able to update in 2-3 weeks, while customers in the US will have to wait even longer, until the end of summer.
The most notable new features include:
Lost everything. Contacts, messages, email. Cant make calls, cant receive calls. Downloaded again to reinstall and it says now that the server is unavailable. Never experienced this before, no help or support. Time to go Blackberry.
Wish I hadnt updated. Lost all my text history and all my email account details . I am not a techie and I'm totally stressed by it and really angry at Blackberry. If they knew there was a problem why didn't they do something about it. Has anyone got ...
It has killed my texting capability. Unless there's a fix today, I'll try to upload the old OS tonight... not happy.
