--------Post updated 3rd October------

For those now on the z10, Q10, Q5 and now Z30 devices running on the new blackberry 10 OS, post your requests, observations here.

Been using one since March 2013 and I can help you with questions you may have cool

DATA PLAN

FULL BIS will still work with no problem on AIRTEL AND GLO..Stay strictly away from MTN and Etisalat

Stay away from 'Social' Plans on all networks....they don't work

COMPLETE, Unlimited and Absolute plans should work because if there's any restrictions its probably only the no of email addresses you can register on BIS but BB10 doesn't handle email with BIS. i use this particular BIS flavor on Glo and Airtel and i can confirm they work flawlessly

UPDATE: I have a first hand experience that Glo BB COMPLETE PLAN work with no problem

Check Page 24 for the new Glo BIS plans and code

New BB10 Data plans,
STAY AWAY from GLO BB10 MIDMONTH plan, it has been placed on 2G network to block video and audio streaming

The great news is BB10 will run on any normal data plan for andriods, iPhone, mifi etc so we dont even need the crappy BB10 plans being introduced by the networks

APPS
there are over 350k BB10 apps on BB World...you can find anything you need on there

Sideloading
Check the last post on this page and the first post on Page 23

Downloading files using BB10 browser
Check Page 5

Others
Check Page 10 for videos highlighting BB10 features

Check Page 23 for more information about BB10 OS and devices

Check the top of Page 38 for BB World settings so you can download files larger than 50mb

Ok. That's good to know. So, when are the owners of these devices gonna come and start posting their observations or is it safe to assume that not many Nigerians are among the 1million buyers?

And now that I've dealt with any possible 1st to comment rubbish can the mods please move this to the front page cos we rarely get threads from this side of the forum on the front page.
Thanks.

Whatsapp is not automatic. To get whatsapp, your device must run a later OS version usually 10.0.10.Bleep versions.

Upgrade can take almost 700mb if not more...

I am currently upgrading mine at oxygen hot spot at Stalad

Bb10 data plans are advised as they give unlimited bbm chat. Other data bundles dont.

Will update if I notice differences after the update

walcolm: @henryskywalker,

All android ports in the blackberry world are running well from reviews I've read and side loading those that are not in bbw yet is also easy

Not talking about reviews but real life experiences here.

I meant end user reviews on bbw...you know those app reviews you can find on the app Page in the store from people who have installed that app?

With the rise and rise of whatsapp and BB 10 having crappy data plans according to you I'm feeling complete sticking with android. though Im loving the fact BB is meeting us half way by coming on board the all touch screen route. But do let us know if a dual sim affordable version comes out.

Great thread!
Re: Blackberry 10 Devices Home: Z10, Q10 Etc by walcolm(m): 7:17am On Mar 31, 2013
Whatsapp for BB10 has been released for about 2 weeks now, it requires a minimum of OS 10.0.10.xxxx as mentioned earlier by @henryskywalker

it is possible to update OTA provided you have a good wifi because of the size of the update.

i think the current inventory will require the update since they were manufactured before the update was released but i believe fresh ones coming off the line will have the latest OS version pre-installed so you might get lucky to get one with the latest update. luckily, the pack shows what version of the OS is pre-installed so you'll know before opening the pack

mehn, beefers will always still beef bb10 like i use to before. Try using the phone before judging it cuz it's completely different from the usual bb. I moved from iphone to bb10, although i hated bb with complete passion angry
The batt outlasts all smart phones, confirmed myself not just the usual rating online, the only time you will have problem is when you are on 3G, mehn the batt go lick like stew grin.
the browser madt ni, the keypad is something else, not to talk of the wipes, at first complicated but ones you understand it, you will enjoy it.
I love games and have not really tried gaming on it, will drop my feedback when i do (especially android games on it).
The camera too superb. But the fact still remains beefers will always beef, handle the phone first before junking it up like other bb. cheers

@justfree,

Great feedback and thanks for being objective. If you're a gamer, you're in luck with bb10 and there are lots of them already. Native and android ports alike

Hello pal.

BlackBerry Os is carrier dependent as regards update. Which sim is inside? Am sure Etisalat has started pushing the updates in Nigeria.

Once you have an update notification, Pls look for a wifi hot spot with very reliable Internet connection and update there. U used oxygen. Check www.oxygen.com.ng for nearby locations.

I spent over 2 hours...

Happy z10 surfing

@Denn

Thank you for the prompt reply. I Have GLO inside the BB Z10, i got the phone on the first day of launch
at GLO world, i tried MTN too but no update. I will try Etisalat as suggested if i can get an OS update. I have good wifi, that wont be a problem. Please more suggestions..

the first thing you need to have is a stable wifi...the update is about 800mb. if the Etisalat sim doesn't give you an update, try a UK sim even if the sim is outdated, it will still detect an update for you

looollll...that happens only in naija..but its safe to say the ones rolling out right now wont have the update pre-installed. by the time Q10 is released to the market, you can be sure this current inventory should have been exhausted.
