Had the Z10 with me for 12 months now and I can guarantee the ups and downs of this phone. Well for one, I had trouble with my Phonebook when all of my contacts are duplicated after I added my google account (contacts, mail, calendar). I had to restart the phone to clear that up. Next downside is my phone randomly shuts down without me touching it 3 days after I got it. I meddled with its software and found nothing, then I turned to hardware. The two gold contacts from the back of the phone to the cover is for NFC. I blocked it and the phone never shut down again. I had more down experience with it but here are my pros on this phone. 1) BB Hub - the neatest, easiest, fastest, awesomest, greatest, and innovative application there is. It is really a hub for ALL YOUR COMMUNICATIONS. I have multiple e-mail account which I have to track up to the minute and this thing! this thing gives what I want in just one place! No more sliding and looking and tapping too many different icons with the same purpose. 2) BB Link - (which almost all BB have) 3) Maps - not very detailed like Gmaps which has satellite view. It can still get you where you want plus, the accelerometer is very sensitive. It keeps track of your current location as you move. 4) Lastly - price, against iPhone 6 today and all its old models, you should choose this for functionality and value. I bought my phone here in the Philippines under GLOBE TELCO contract for 24 months.
I am using z10 from six months. I tried many browsers from 1 mobile. All lags and crashes after few hours. Only (DOLPHIN BROWSER EXPRESS) from mobogenie market works well on z10. All z10 users may try this.enjoy blackberry.
Ani, 30 Dec 2014I require apn settings for my own purpose, you said u know everything about the phone, so are ... moreI don't know every thing about Z10 but will try to help.Z10 is the first BB 10 phone and APN setting come from the sim card automatically.If You see like "bb............"and not Your provider APN address this means the sim card send address for BIS,like BB 7.0 OS.You should contact Your provider and ask to change sim card setting,they can do it.You can do it??using escreen method,google it,I personally did not do it.If You have installed 10.2.1 OS on Your phone or less do this""get to settings,mobile network,on the bottom star with APN TAP IT,yOU WILL SEE GRAYED APN address and You cant write any thing,OK,two fingers from the bottom up will bring the key board and opting to change the APN""i did change the address with no problem.ALL this for 10.2.1 or less OS.If You have installed any leeak,like me 10.3.1.xxx,only escreen method will work,but I prefer to wait till official update.If You did'nt install leaks on Your device make Your provider to change the sim card setting,the easy way.Hope this will work for You.
Atul Shah, 24 Dec 2014Your information is incorrect and misleading. Plz don't post irrelevant and bogus info.what do you mean with "incorrect and misleading"?
my BB Z10 battery back up still doing well until today. that is my mileage, even now, i hold my BB Z10 and the battery % is 50% after more than 10 hours of last charging!
i use only 2 ways to charge my BB Z10, using BB Z10 original charger or by connect it to my PC. that's why i never have a problem with my BB Z10 battery.
I require apn settings for my own purpose, you said u know everything about the phone, so are you able to answer Atthul?

@ritesh i dont think you used this phone. Its almost 2015 and the z10 is still way better than the iphone 6 or any other android - Multitasking, security, simplicity, stability and speed. So please, shut up!
This phone is very ridiculous, i dont see blackberry has learnt the lesson for its past phones. Here are the major crunches of this Z10 phones:
