I used to own a BB 8900 curve; that phone was awesome until the track ball malfunctioned. I am currently using an iphone 5; it's old but I've never had any problem with it. I'm just a regular phone user--calls, sms, plus instagram and viber. So after reading lots of positive feedback about the BB DTEK50, I've decided to buy one asap. I will post my comments as soon as I get my hands on the said phone. Keeping my fingers crossed! :D
I have NOT receive any update with my dtek50, my last update was October

It heats just in idle or with any particular use? if so, which app/process?. likewise while idle charging there should not be any heating unless using some heavy apps or process.
Ideally for better battery life and for normal heating issues, i suggest you may follow the below, (which worked for me in having more juice.)
>Keep your brightness to 30%
>Turn off all background process
>force stop those applications that shows battery usages even without usage
>change your themes to pitch black(only if you are not concerned of using any wallpaper)
The above should solve your issue with heating also, if any application is the culprit.

Note : Normal use and havn't installed any other application apart from pre-installed things.
papapig, 29 Nov 2016Where can I find in the setting on how to adjust the contrast?You may scipe down from top and adjust screen brightness. However am not sure if this alone would solve ur heating problem. Just check if any of your apps working background. if so you may close or even force stop for better results.

Actually DTEK50 is a nice phone, and I really appreciate it but am having problem with sim 2 slot, I can't use it at the same time, is there any solution to that? If yes please help me out . Thanks.
If only blackberry listens and fix immediately the messaging part of dtek50 or the Messenger itself , there are times or most of the time it will miss to send text " sending " word doesnt go away it freezes dont know if the cause of the freeze is lack or low signal....needs FIX ASAP....
