Shame on BBerry for such an advanced system (Z10) not to have the basic Desktop Software for Mac OS to synch contacts and cal.
there are lot of things that will dissatisfied u on this phone. blackberry will forever be blackberry.

just bought the z10 and belive me this device is cool its a must have for everyone who loves blackberry....
Nice looking phone . Light weight . Good screen resolution . BUT..and this BUT is with capital letter: How come it doesn't support Outlook sync. it is a hassle to get your contacts imported. NO whatsapp, No Skype, No Viber, Keyboard Hangs, and least but not last if you turn the phone off your morning alarm (for example ) wont start !!!! I am a bit frustrated/disappointed) with my Z10 so far.
Regarding Mr 7 days of frustration, your points are noted... there will be teething problems, as it's a new OS and new hardware, that doesnt mean the phone is bad. From personal experience when "we" get new phones we tend to abuse the phone for the 1st couple of days, trying to get use to everything... so naturally your battery wont last, try using it the same way you used your previous phone and let us know if the battery life still stays the same... you cant bash the phone/OS when you are then one being over zealous...
This is the Perfect phone for me...I could use to my personal and for my work..,Now I just need 1phone... :)
After 7 days of frustration...
Conclusion: Z10 is a iPhone wannabe, but got only ~60%.
It looks similar to an iPhone.
Battery life is ultra-short, unacceptable. I got 4 to 5 hours on a full charge. On standby most of the time too.
The word guessing on-screen keyboard is cool, but has quirks: unpredictable auto-delete, gets stuck on some cap letters, mysterious auto tab! Ugh!
Image rotation is slow at best and gets stuck periodically.
Most functions and apps take a while to open.
Oh, no Viber for Z10.
Don't understand why there are so many positive reviews on this site. Maybe I got a lemon?! Hope so for BB sake. I am not impressed. Can understand why Home Depot went with iPhone rather than BB.
Especially considering the availability of the popular apps. Which may not be supported on this phone anytime soon. :( But great phone. Hayy.
I'm a BB 9320 user and I have been waiting to get my hands on this device. Although, I am a little skeptic, as this is the first prototype that they have released. There might be a lot of drawbacks regarding the functionality. Considering the price for this handset, I'm considering just going for an iPhone 5 that has already proved it's worth. Still deciding. :)
