Hi All,

Dear BB users i am posting my comments in regards to let you guys know that on Saturday.14.2015, when i connected my BB Z-30 with my laptop via BlackBerry Link software so there was a notification to update my phone software and that update size was 109 MB, Kindly keep one thing in your mind i already updated my phone on 10.3 software when it was released Feb.19.2015 & when i did this update on last Saturday after rebooting the phone automatically it was giving me another application which is called "BlackBerry Meetings". I know only this application not has the size of 109 MB there were other things also about the phone updates but i cannot see any major changes after updating my Z-30 of this 109 MB size of the update.

My other friend has BB Z-10 but he didn't get any update yet, after heard this thing from him i realize that or as per my understanding that 109 MB update was only for BB Z-30.

If any of you get this small update kindly let us know no matters if you have Z-30 or any other model.

Thanks & Regards
Jay Williams

Dear BB users, if you guys have updated your phone software on 10.3 and if you are facing the problems so what i did after upgrading my BB Z-30 on 10.3, I've upgraded all of my phone apps from BB World and the main thing i did after that i had reset my phone, i took like 15 minutes to do that and once you are done with reset you have to do or make some changes accordingly or as per your need and every thing is running for me like no other.

As far as the other source apps are concerned specially android apps so after doing all the steps mentioned above the best application you can download and install form your computer is SNAP v3.0, this is the best application i suggest to all BB users which will allow you to download almost all the android apps but for installing the SNAP 3.0 on your phone you need to Google it that "How to install the SNAP on your BB Z30,10,3" depending on the model, because you can not download it directly from your phone.

i hope that will help all of you.

Thanks & Regards,
Jay Williams

After upgrading the phone software you need to go on BB World and check for the application update like apps in your phone you will find the BBM update on that too so just upgrade and your problem will be resolved.

Thanks & Regards,

It should be the device itself, take it back to the service center for repair. However, u must have a receipt of purchase for verification.

As per my experience why battery drains ?
BB has its own platform so if you use android aaps and complain battery drains its normal.
No Android phone last for a day so use BB for its features or change your phone go switch to android phone if you are fond of android apps.

Secondly see your settings there must be any option which would sync your phone all the time when you are on with your mobile internet.

coz BB is known for its battery life :)

Hope it will help you.

I am switching to BB from windows as i want to use this platform as its been awesome after new update.

hi people
i have a question
what about the battery life in 10.3.1 and if you compare with 10.2 or 10.2.1 it got better or not or no changes?
is this true that Android apps can damage BB devices?
all of them or non or heavy apps?
thanks in advance

Updated my Z30 to 10.3 and here are my observations and opinions.

-Overall, the phone seems to run a bit faster when opening applications. The Android applications open much faster.
-Deleting Blackberry Hub notification items and phone calls/SMS' is much easier.
-Huge improvement in the Camera software. Before the sync between the flash and the camera taking the photo wasn't always there. Not anymore - it's perfect flash/shutter sync every time.
-They've fine tuned the motion sensor in the phone. Games like Real Racing 3 are more responsive (it was good before, but is better now).
-Virtual Assistant Rocks! If you have a Z10 or Z30, Open Virtual Assistant and say "Local Weather" or "Closest Restaurant"...amazing!

The only problem that I've encountered is sometimes when I open Blackberry World while having a data connection showing "H+", the application will error out while loading the application icons, displaying a message that the application will now close. This hasn't happened while connected via 3g or Wi-Fi and doesn't affect any other functions/applications on the phone.

The only thing I don't like is the default graphics on the lock screen. I'd like to see Blackberry have an option to use your own graphic file and the ability to adjust the opaqueness.
