The Blackberry Z10 is a super bit if kit. Have had it for about 3weeks now and I am fascinated by it. Having upgraded from a phone (text and talk) the Z10 takes us to an entirely new level with an abundance of apps. Much is said and written about the apple I phone which is priced about £550. I bought the Z10 from Carphone Warehouse for £149. The Z10's problem seems to be late coming to the market, but at the price I paid fantastic value for money. Some complain about the poor battery life. But it should be remembered that this phone does much more the previous generation of phones. I would not swop it.

- Install Battery Lover application and check when it goes down drastically on a particular activity.
- Also, Settings->Network Connections->Mobile Network->Network Mode(Choose specific band you want to be at, otherwise it searches for other bands too)

i) About your messages saved in sim card, google this:
This will point to a Crackberry Forum.
Here is the solution to it, as written by a user in CrackBerry forum:
"After a visit in my carrier's store and after thorough investigation it appears to be a problem on network's side. I have a new SIM card and no more "SIM full" message, however I still don't receive text messages. Tested on another phone - the same situation. Now I have a ticket and awaiting resolution... To summarize: in my case there's nothing wrong with Z10, OS or SIM card. It seems that the message was kinda "generic", identifying some issue with carrier's network."
Messages are never stored in SIM in Z10. This is issue with SimCard you are using. AFAIT, you are using old one and get it replaced from your network provider and I'm pretty sure it will solve your problem.
ii) About the battery issue, check which application you use most, it is generally defect of application trying to communicate with OS most of the time rather when required. For instance whenever I play PixWords game, battery drains very fast, rather it's a simple crossword game and it shouldn't.
If you are recording video, it is an exception and will drain your battery fast anyhow as camera is recording minimum 720p resolution.
In my case: Around @ 6AM I unplug my device at 100% battery.
Till around 11PM at night I put it to charge and that moment battery left varies from ~12 to 30%
Applications connected are WhatsApp, BBM Groups, Facebook, Gmail, Twitter, Foursquare. These applications are always interacting.
I use Skype for approx 20mins., calling goes for around 30 minutes via network. WhatsApp, Facebook and BBM takes approx 45 minutes(total aggregate time I'm interacting with it). Gaming for around 20 to 30 minutes. And finally, I'll be streaming some music via Nobex or will be playing music for a while.
Moreover I keep on News(video play) in morning for around 30 minutes(daily task).
If I'm engaged in all of the above activities at night before bed, I'm left with around 10 to 15% battery. Never encounter condition wherein I have to look for it to charge as last 10% goes down slowly.
If I miss out any of the activities above charge remains about 25 to 30%.
So, I would suggest you to check which applications are draining your battery, that you will learn it overtime and understanding the issue.
Hope it helps.
For any other concerns. Reply back.
