Premium phone at bargain price.
The materials used on this phone are truly premium. Starting from that beautiful edge to edge glass. The touch and typing experience is better than on the HTC one, my other phone. The flip case that comes with it fits snugly and looks great. The loudspeaker is excellent. I use it often for conference calls, again above my HTC one. Finally, the lte is fast! Has a signal almost all the time, Web pages load v quickly.
If you don't want to spend $800 on a smartphone but still appreciate a high quality product, buy this phone. No regrets.
One last thing, ever since upgrading to Os 10.2, the battery life has improved a lot. It was a negative before but no longer. Thumbs up!

In my country, BB Z10 costs $270 for the new one. Just wonder why the price dropped very fast. At first, I wanted to buy it. Later on, lots of people complainted about battery, camera performance, and apps. Can't find any smart phones cheaper than this nowadays.

About your questions I would like to help you:
1.> Can i use pre-paid SIM: Yes you can use
2.> And there is any drwa-back of Z10.: No drawbacks are present in the device what I feel its a beautiful master piece with very great OS, with crisp dislpay and great camera.
The coolest thing about it is it's awesome OS and the company keeps pushing updates making it more useful and intelligent. Support for Android applications is also present in future OS update you can directly install Android files.
It will prove very useful to you and will be good for your business management needs.
3.> BB service center (I am living in Noida.) You can google. There are many near aroung NCR.
4.> Should i buy from on line Shopping: Yes, go with Flipkart, you will get peace of mind and competitive price. Don't order from Ebay. Choose the colour according to your requirement.
If more questions reply back, would love to help.

That's weird issue.
Are you on leaked OS? If not what is the current OS version?
Did you tried restarting the phone?
If still not solved, may be some application is running in the background, you may try by killing some applications from Settings->AppManager that you installed like some Android one which is not working fine.... or try killing caller application.
Hope this info helps.
An Honest Review about this phone
I have been using Blackberry between 2007 till 2010, and then I switched over to android till end of 2012 and then Iphone for 10 months and now this phone from BB
Iím using it for last 4 days and below are my views about the phone:-
Social networking and emails, all at one place (Really Handy and convenient to navigate through)
No button to lock or unlock, Swipe and touch works great
Battery at Par with Iphone 4 usage, I over used my phone since morning around 8:00 AM and intermittently kept fiddling until 4:00 PM and had 19% battery available, realised I should charge a bit just to keep it going until 8:00 PM until I reach home (Not to forget, I was on 4G network)
Contacts link through different social networks is great
Half Swipe on Home Screen works in locked mode brings you notifications , and you could see the categories of Email, Whatzapp, BBM etc, and preview whatís in there and by whom
Customization of phone based on work and personal mode (Really impressive)
The best Ė Typing, Iím using two languages, English and Hinglish, and believe me, I have never experienced such great thing coming on smart phone, any hinglish word typed on iphone gets auto corrected to something silly and had embarrassed me at times
BB playbook connectivity, it stays connected with my playbook all day and night, and I could access emails, bbm, and text oh playbook, send or reply etc
Camera Quality if compared today with other smart phones is not impressive
Applications available are limited to the level of 80% that I require, but Iím sure there are sites that could convert android apps to Bar that could get installed in BB, I have done that in BB playbook, havenít found time to do that for BB z10
In nutshell, really impressive OS, and I would recommend this to anyone

Why should Blackberry reduce the price of Z10. Blackberry less the some features. please help me be frankly.
Any one can give me any advice if its worth buying a blackberry z10 or not??
I have had the z10 for 3 months and have been almost completely satisfied. There are enough apps to satisfy my tastes, the ui is well designed and user friendly and the constant updates are incorporating better and better features all the time. With the recent price drops on the phone give it a try. My only solid complaint is the phones battery life. Not great but useable especially with gps on.
