in my hood i have three providers. i use rogers because the others don't work. i had the area manager tell bell who is my neighbor that we have no signal, they said we were lying, the map was "blue". that map is full of bs i have traveled to "blue areas" with no signal. now to the subject at hand. the only phone that works with telus/bell is a blackberry; it has unparallelled rf quality no other phone can touch. but the oi is boring, camera is crap and the apps are junk. so i gave up and went back to rogers and got a slew of android devices. all i can say about bb's is that the radios on them are superb!

blackberry is a business phone
not really for entertainment
go get the android phones with
quad core processor if you want entertainment and speed.
peace fron manila.

I've just been reading about some people who have bought the Z30 and they say that the volume in the earpiece speaker is very low, I hope this is a software issue and not a hardware one. I will hold off buying the Z30 until this gets sorted. Hate low volume in the earpiece speaker.

Okay, Coming from Galaxy and iPhone, I got the Z30 from Selfridges UK and here are my initial impressions after a few days of heavy use:

The hardware: The Z30 is stunning and seem very durable. The footprint is small for a device with a 5 inch display, although the phone is a bit on the heavy side, which actually adds to the quality aspect of the device in my opinion. The screen hasn't got iPhone 5's natural colours nor its great brightness, but is still a very good display indoors and outdoors. The blacks are superb.

The software, although not quite as polished as iOS (yet), it is very fast and intuitive in my opinion and seem more natural and modern to use than iOS and Android. Including Docs2Go with PowerPoint editing (which not even Microsoft offers on their Office app) is a great addition for me.

Apps: The only apps that I miss a little at the moment are my banking app and "made for Blackberry" Amazon and Skype apps. Although using my bank's mobile webpage works just fine and there are Amazon and Skype app from Google, it would be good to see these apps in the BB app world soon. There is further great integration with apps and services such as LinkedIn and Evernote to name a couple, which provides a seamless experience.

Migration from iOS to BB10: Simple and straightforward. Kudos to Blackberry for posting so many "how to" videos showing the best ways to migrate to the BB platform from other major platforms.

Set up: Simple and pleasant overall. The wifi setup at my work went easier than with my iPhone. Paring my device with my car's bluetooth was as easy as with my iPhone. To my surprise he Z30 works perfectly with my Sennheiser Momentum (which is actually optimised for the iOS devices) in terms of controls and handsfree experience (not being the case with Android devices).

My only remark concerns setting up the iCloud email account, which took three tries to succeed. Setting up and syncing with my iCloud calendar and contacts succeeded at first try.

Overall: So far I'm very refreshed by the entire experience and can warmly recommend the device and the whole experience. Software updates has been coming out in a good frequent stream and the app world is thriving not just in terms of quantity but quality as well, not least thanks to Blackberry working closer with developers from all over the world. Looking forward to a couple of years with my Z30....
