I used the Z10 for 3 days before I gave up and reconciled with my Iphone 5. I loved the Blackberry phones with the physical keyboards and was overeager in my anticipation of this phone. It was not at all user friendly and at the time that I had it (March 11-14 2013) I could not install Whatsapp, I had a minimal BB contact list, most of my friend have left BB and I was lost without Whatsapp. My 11 year old tried it for a few days and also gave up and went back to her S3. I ended up selling it for USD 230.
The best phone EVER
I bought it for only 560euros a month ago and I'm very very very happy with it :)
Fast, easy to use and such a beautifull design
thnx again RIM
Katonym, 22 Mar 2013People that like to text a lot? WRONG! It is an emailer/business phone... it is only since the... moreit might be a good business phone , but are we teenagers supposed to hold business meetings and send long, boring, formal emails?? lol :P
this phone is real crap.
it beats the sgs 4 in design though, but still, it doesnt belong in my hands....
still if other's wanna give BB10 Os a shot they can wait for the Q10.... it features a physical keyboard which i miss a lot :D

I have bought i... moredude its up to you on what do you want from your device if you want amazing apps and no lags pick up your appl products. if you want more customization use android. but if your tired of both pick this blackberry i think its amazing coz of all the gestures for shortcuts. its like this phone is for people on the go. chek messages fast, browse the net fast with no lags. take it from me i have iphone, sony android phone, and planning to buy this one. KNOW WHAT YOU NEED BEFORE BUYING ANY GADGETS!!!
with all the comments on the z10. looking at the appraisal and the bullshit comment on the fone. how sure am i that when ui get the fone its not goona develop the same proble m as the previous users.
For those of you who still did not buy the Z10, my advice is not to buy it.
I have bought it for more than $700 USD when it first came out, and could not sell it for more than $250 after two weeks. I could not really even give it away.
When compared to iPhone or Galaxy, I don’t think you should think twice about NOT getting the Z10. It has nothing to offer what so ever over the other phones. On the contrary, the other phones have hundreds of features and apps not available on the Z10.
Buying it just for the sake of being loyal to Blackberry like I did (I see no other reason why anyone would buy it) is a big mistake in my opinion.
I'm quite confuse of choosing which phone to purchase. Choices are Z10, Lumia and iPhone 5)
I know that not everyone posting here really had Z10 or actually used the Z10. (not all post are facts)
I'm using an iPhone 4S and the BlackBerry 9790.
My issues with the BlackBerry 9790:
- Overheats and if I will not remove the battery, it will drain the power in just 20 mins. (Even with the latest firmware)
- It hangs at some point everyday.
I'm pleading to Z10 Users... is the phone really worth getting?
No-bullshit and biased post please.
Feels great to touch. Just for the app world to be updated swiftly so customers do not get tired of waiting.
Not sure I like the updated bbm on it, I am unable to clear update history from contacts.
Iphone will always be superior to Z10 - I have an iphone 4s as well and they are not comparable.
I have been a blackberry user for years. My primary use is for email and I think the hub is a step backward in a couple of important respects. First, my Torch home screen currently has an icon for each of my four email accounts. The little stars let me tell at a glance which email account has new emails. Secondly, each of these accounts can be set to have the blinking light on or off. I only use it for the one email account that is most important. The z10 cannot be configured in this manner. I hope further software releases will restore these capabilities.

It is rightly said by Gg... Battery drains without even using phone..it drains in 3 hours after full charge, i am unable understand how my otherdata on device is showing 6.8 GB used while i have not stored any music or video or puctures. It is too slow to open any of the field. Call l log is also not at freindly... I hve followed all instruction downlded new update 10.0.10.83 one day battery worked very good but now bundles of problem... What i shoild do i dont know....
Edb, 25 Mar 2013Works great on Vodafone Romania! No problem with email syncing, Facebook, LinkedIn and so on. ... moreok, but does it support BIS? Because I slready have a BIS data plan I would hate to change my subscription type.... tried to talk to VDF Romania and they still don't know shit about this issue....
Not sure what BB has in plans but your telecom partners can't even support Internet plans for z 10, please launch a phone when you have the infra in place, it's a absolute waste of my money by going for BB z10, talk to TATA Docomo for more details...

Have you tried to get a replacement elsewhere? Or asked for a full refund as the phone has been deemed DOA? Seems to me that there is a lot of moaning about a phone that you used for a short time, when there is nothing wrong per se with the phone, you were just unlucky enough to have a faulty one, which happens with all phones everywhere.
