Don't think so... are you moving back to android and are you worried about Z30 security? C'mon! Stop trolling people, go to other forum and Rest In Peace. See u in the Cloud.
I have been using the z30 before I started using the galaxy S5 to the best of my knowledge, I preferred the BlackBerry to the s5. Apart from the water proof and the health app that is loaded in the s5, the z30 is far better
Z30 is a great phone...and BlackBerry os is a unique os...good battery...can't wait for the latest version of os..

If I don't need BBM, I just uninstall it. Do you think BBM keep you logged on permanent even if you uninstall it ? Sorry, I never tested that option.

I guess not? This is becoming a huge problem now, imagine if Facebook and Twitter registered you as a new user and logged you in PERMANENTLY (with no option to log out or delete your account) when you activated a new phone? Its unthinkable, yes, but its exactly what BlackBerry does to us with BBM.
I can no longer recommend BB10 pones, the OS is great but the privacy violation is too severe.
And what about custom search engines, now with iOS8 you can even choose DuckDuckGo as your default search in iPhone, more freedom in iOS than in BB, isnt that weird?? Indeed it is strange but true.
And Google/Android? Gooogle been very intrusive in their effort to force people to use their lame Hangouts app for text and chat but there is an option to disable the entire Hangouts service on Android phones. You cant comment on Play Store or Youtube without a Google+ account but you are not forced to use Google+. Now we are seeing a miracle, Google being LESS intrusive than BlackBerry! Google, the king of privacy violations, will allow you to unregister but BB doesnt???
I love BB10 but with forced BBM i dont feel welcome as a BB10 user, i have to go back to Android =(
I have installed 10.3.0.296 on yesterday, in my Z30. Have to say the improvement Blackberry made with this 'beta' version is amazing. New look and feel, improvements in camera, video player etc are noteworthy. In two years, evolution of this OS in features wise are tremendous. Feels like I am using a brand new phone.

And the keyboard is simply the best-- auto correct gets it right every time, the simplicity and productivity of the OS makes everything a breeze with the phone.
Only thing I wish BlackBerry improves on is the auto focus, I don't mind 8mp as it's decent enough for media and social usage (come on, we have real cameras for heavy photographing anyways right), but I always miss those crucial, spur of the moment event because of the quite slow focusing ability of the phone's camera. Otherwise it's the best phone I've used to date.
Best phone on the market so far, great for emails, video, pictures, social media,security, good battery life and fast processor what else could you ask for in a phone? The app store is however lagging behind, I hope they permit Android and Microsoft apps to work on BlackBerry once this is achieved the phone will be superior to all other devices of its time.
1st touch screen phone I've had after several keypad bb's and have to say its a great phone, does everything I want it to do and it does it fast. I use it as full on business device and it delivers on all levels. Best bb I've ever had.
Use 1MobileMarket app to download and install Android app in BB 10 OS.. this app contains all app(.apk) from google app store....

a little thick
a little heavy
a little low ppi
if these problems get resolved bb can be the best in all aspects.
Anonymous, 26 May 2014i want to get it but bb has concepted z60c.i dont want to change my phone anymore i want that...The Z60c concept is fake, very obvious dreamed up spec list. 8GB DDR5 RAM, dual sim, it just doesnt get more fake than that. Noone has actually said it is real anyway, its just a pure fantasy product, and its not from BB.
Some of the UI changes for the imaginary BB10.5 has already been tested on other phones, with disastrous results, like the swipe to switch between apps was present on the Nokia N9 and was terrible.
And the classic buttons, LOL, hope they never make the way to full touch BB devices.
