mike, 06 Apr 2013no viber and skype application Yes there is, but you have to buy it
Loved the BlackBerry Z10. Amazing display even in sunlight. Very good camera and the OS has a lot to offer and is very easy to operate. Problem is with the app world. There aren't many apps but many apps are in their way to the AppWorld so I wouldn't worry about that. Overall, a wonderful phone.
Planning to buy z10
Now I would like to know whether it has few essential apps that I am using on my android phone
camera zoom fx
any app to lock files nd folder
ringtone cutter or ringdroid

I was hesitant at first to buy this BlackBerry Z10 considering all the issues Iíve read and heard about the phone but still I chose to give BlackBerry another chance. I'm using the Bold 9790 and I'm not so happy about it but with this one, Iím very happy to say that this phone totally surpassed all my expectation. Iím very satisfied with the superb messaging features (E-Mail and the BBM). I didn't face any problem whatsoever. No over-heating. No hanging-up. No restarting. The phone have a very stable and smooth UI (Operating System). My phone lasted almost a day with average usage (calls, bbms, e-mailing and facebooking) with voice dictation.
Another thing which I love about the phone is the voice dictation feature. Iím not a native English speaker but I can speak the American accent though not perfect and the phone totally understands my talking. Some times, I just feel lazy to type and I will just have to dictate what I have to say, do some few editing (Iím not a native English speaker as I said) and send the message.
Transferring contacts from my iPhone is surprisingly easy. I have an iCloud account where my phoneís contacts are also backed-up and from the BlackBerry Setting (Accounts -> Add Account) everything is at eased. My iPhone's contacts are synchronized with my BlackBerry Phonebook.
I donít have problem with the phoneís network signal and the WIFI. I donít experience any drop calls or delays in sending or receiving messages.
I donít complain about the few apps on the App World, I can wait. Iím not really someone whose like downloading games and tons of app on the phone, just few that are useful is what I need. Skype and Viber with voice and video calling feature are on their way. Iím sure more apps are on the way in the coming months.
I donít regret choosing this phone over (Xperia Z and iPhone 5) and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT TO EVERYONE.
With this phone, BlackBerry have a chance to regain a considerable market share again.
po , 05 Apr 2013why z10 not have blackberry bis? now just pack date This is something great about the new BlackBerry 10 OS, means e-mails and apps are no longer BIS dependent. Simply a network data plan will work.

I am new to smart phones and it doesn't seem to do as much as my short lived blackberry I had prior to the z10. And can I do anything with the ring tones?? I don't like the text one as I miss it all the time. And I had separate tones for my family members before.

In reply to anne and how to forward an SMS: Hold your finger on the message you want to forward and a black bar should pop out from the right. Open that and it has all options on there :)
AboJoe, 02 Apr 2013The specs or the hardware components is important factor when it comes to choosing a new phone... moreBetter than ANYTHING on the market droid iphone and all the rest are to up their game or end up as paper weights
