I do all my "work" (including emails) on my laptop but when I am in meeting or during lunch breaks or during travel, I check my emails frequently on BB. I've heard wonderful things about the virtual keypad in BB10 so not very fussed on having a physical QWERTY keypad hence not even considering the Q10.
Though my curve is on BIS, my IT folks have confirmed that they can support my official mails on BB10 and normal data plans. What I am concerned about is
1. Battery management
2. Ease of use
3. Obviously "non work fun stuff" that I can do on my new phone - could be fast surfing, light gaming, media and entertainment.
Given these requirements, should I go for Z10 or Z3... Terribly confused.
what the crap is going one has anyone used Z3 then pls post the review people are not intrusted in reading blackberry histry and OS10 ...is Z3 good for multimeddia experiance? HD movies? Music? Gaming ?

But the headset supplied was a letdown for me. I love bass in my music ( "The Keepers" by Sandigold..wow). I had to buy a better quality headphone to enjoy my music. However for normal conversation the supplied headset is more than sufficient.
Having said that, I have no idea what is the sound experience of Z3. Maybe once some of my friends buy it, I would know.
Any one please tell me the sound experience in Blackberry phones.......
I planned to purchase Z3.
Thanks in advance

So you may have to check with your IT guys if BlackBerry 10 support the mail access. How do you access your mails from your laptop? Using a VPN? That is where you need the confirmation from your IT department.
If you are truly looking for a Curve ( being a QWERTY device), you may consider BlackBerry Q10. It is compact and sturdy device with a great battery life - perfect for communication

Long live Blackberry"
Pulled off from a forum from crackberry.com
Some of these reasons also apply to the blackberry z3 and this might help the people who are still confused whether to go for blackberry or not...
Anonymous, 28 Jun 2014Yes, thanks for info. But still uncleared about what is so unique in messaging ? And from sec ... moreHi Ramesh.
Let me give u a clarification first...BB is not just a smartphone making company...Like Iphone from APPLE , Blackberry was just brand name for RIM( Research In Motion) handset making division. Last year with the launch of BB 10, RIM completely became Blackberry.
1. You were confused about secured BB messaging service- On BB os 7( service is not available on BB 10) there is option to create Blackberry hosted email account, which is firstname.lastname@example.org ( if you are using Idea then it will be email@example.com for airtel - firstname.lastname@example.org) these email account can only be accessible on 1 BB device. if you are sending email from one BB hosted email to other, which is hard to crack the BB network. So which makes emails more secure.
2. BB provides Blackberry enterprise services for companies, let me say your company has MS exchange server, Once you configure email on android or Iphone, hope you know users data are not so protected so company has risk.
So BB integrates server on top of your company server( BES 5- which can handle only BB os devices, BES 10- Which can handle BB 10, android- device should not be routed, IOS- device should not be jail broken) Once the email is integrated with BES, office IT will have access to apply IT policies, so all data for your email will flow through BB network.
3. There is once more option- (many people wont use) Every BB device come unique PIN ( same is used with BBM as well) like SMS, once can send PIN to PIN message, which is also hard to crack.
4. BB os device work with different APN blackberry.net)
BB 10 os device works with regular data plan, however all data will be filtered with BB security, even with 3G once it is connected you see BB logo along with network signal.
these are jus glance at BB security.....there is so much..........which makes BB most secured os.
I want to get a new Blackberry for my corporate phone connection. I get around 200 emails a day & my talktime requirement is around 3-4 hrs. I also use my corporate phone for the odd personal web surfing (60 mts a day) - my laptop is my main device at work and my Ipad is my communication/entertainment device at home. Ease of use is very important.
Battery life is key for me so should I go for a Z10 or a Z3 (The price difference here in India is negligible). I currently own an older version of the Curve series, dont remember the model.
RDJ, 25 Feb 2014For less than $200, this phone is great value for money.How is the camera
agabhay, 01 Jul 2014friends suggest which mobile to buy blackberry z3 or z10 pleaseIt depends what you want. If you want a big screen and a big battery then go for z3. But if you want better camera, more phone memory, faster processor and more RAM then go for z10.
Z10 also has better screen resolution. But battery of z10 is not that good. However since the z10 battery is replaceable you can buy a spare battery. So choice is yours.
