In September when Blackberry rolled out the 2nd Blackberry OS update, I could not update my Z10 due to some technical glitches. My handset could not startup at all. If it had happened to start up it would rivert back to starting up and would make me to wait untill forever.
Therefore I had to take it to the retailer shop so that it is repaired because it is still covered by a two year guarantee. As you are reading this readers opinion I am a new proud owner of the Blackberry Z10. I was taken aback when an Indian consultant told me that they have given me a new Z10. My old troublesome Blackberry Z10 was replaced with a brand new Z10 and I am crazy with happiness.
But the reason I am on this forum is not because of the new handset I was given by Vodacom South Africa, but I like to say something regarding the 2nd Blackberry OS update. On the 23rd December I was at the restaurant dowloading the current OS update. The size of the file is 387MB in size and it has two stages to download from the air.
And buddies it is an excruciating experience downloading and updating this software. It happens very slow make sure you do not disturb the process. I sat in the restaurant downloading the file 120 and some minutes waiting for the process to take place. It was a bit tiring and you must be patient. But finally you do come to and end of updating.
Comparing the two updates the former update was huge in size, I still remember it was two gigabytes with two stages to follow for the download to complete.
And after finishing updating the former update my handset took into a different Blackberry. There was a huge difference, many new features were added and introduced into handsets when it was being updated. The way the handset starts up was really a step up compared than before, the addition of the Amazon app and the Opera Mini into Blackberry 10 really placed Blackberry 10 devices equivalent to Android smartphones.
I am not impressed with the latest update. The time taken to update the handset is long and killing but the end results of sitting that long are tiny to notice. Only the second Amazon app white in colour is added up during updating the software. That is why I am saying the file to download is small yet you spend long time updating the handset and avoiding mistakes to never happen.
Anyway thanks very much from the Canadian mobile phone company, they are prepared to meet the needs of their Blackberry fans, Blackberry 10 is different, is unique efficient and very smart to utilize. If you are a smart person and need a great handset to own stay with Blackberry10. I like Blackberry 10, the thing is I am disappointed in Blackberry Organization to desert her own wonderful platform software and decided to join Android.
All they had to do was to revizit the drawing board and fix those minor bugs which are within Blackberry OS 10. BuT with my Blackberry Z10 I am satisfied and an Android user feels envy about my Z10 updated twice in 2015

It's like 20 dollars and you always have a charged battery on you. 4G eats battery more because you will use it more.

It's so hard to find any phone in the midrange price point that can match this communication device. All you need is a spare battery and you're good to go because remember - you have ability to swap out batteries. It is good value on the second hand market - dirt cheap, 4g ready, good size. It's making it very hard to upgrade to the new handsets because it is that good.
Clarita, 12 Dec 2015I love my Z10 but I can't share a video. Only 16 mbOne way around this would be to copy url to the file rather than the file itself.
i attamp security wipe on z10 , it took 24 hrs for 98% and noe since another 36 hrs it stuck at 99% .... what should i do?
Recently I am getting an error while playing the media files. The YouTube videos, when trying to play, only plays it for a second and stops. Even after tapping the play button, the same thing happens, it plays the file only for 1 second. Same thing with Twitter and Facebook files.

I am using Z10 for more than a year and never faced this issie, also I haven't channel anything on my phone from the last time I used to play these files, so can someone please help in this.
