I have used the phone for 8 months only and today it just went dead, not charging and not coming on, not even connecting to the computer. cant even reboot coz battery is unremovable. help what could be the cause
I've owned a Blackberry Z3 for two months now. I can sincerely say that this phone is the biggest piece of sh*t i've ever had contact with. I do not care about design, weight, how many milion pixels are on my screen or how many fanboys the brand has. I do not install apps. I only care about a polished, tested product which i can use without any hinderm which can make calls and will not lose signal without any good reason. This is not the case for the Blackberry Z3.
One of the things i do not understand is why "System" suddenly starts using more and more battery until it completely drains it, without notifying the user beforehand ? I can understand that the phone needs to do its sh*t in order to work properly. Maybe it decided it needs to do some math in order to solve cancer or calculate some black hole's gravity. But please tell me what SYSTEM actually means, what actual program in SYSTEM decided to use my phone's battery without asking for my permission because maybe i will not agree for my phone to be locked to my wall socket 24/7 because the battery will instantly drain whenever it is unplugged.
Another thing that i do not understand is why my phone will completely lose signal and close the conversation when passing through an area with a slightly lower signal, while 100% of other phones will not. Or why my phone will completely lose signal and won't recover it until it restarts, regardless of how many reconnects to the mobile network it will perform. Or why my phone, when put in a area with low or no signal, will almost catch fire while desperately trying to find a signal. This terminal is either seriously untested or tested and willingly unfixed.
I will not go deeply into the interface issues although i could. But maybe in a couple of days my phone will open the phone book when pressing the Messaging icon or maybe the keyboard will, again, open up in the homescreen randomly. Or maybe i'll try to use some of the accesibility features, let's say activate the Zoom feature, after which the phone will promptly turn rabid.
meee, 06 May 2015Y does it say insert Sim when ders a Sim inserts in itClean the metal contacts on the sim card with a cotton bud dipped in vinegar then dry, pit the sim back in the phone, if that doesn't work contact customer service from where you got it from cause most most probably mean you need a replacement
Burhan, 09 May 2015Z3 is that android or windows??? It's Blackberry's own operating system, Blackberry 10.
