    Z10 Owners club

    This thread is for all the Z10 owners. rest stay away...LOL

    just kidding

    All Z10 owners pls post your first day experiences and troubles with the new phone in this thread.

    I personally think this is an amazing phone. yes it has some small bugs, but nothing is a deal breaker. and with the upcoming 10.1 update i wud expect most of the small bugs to be fixed. there are few things i wanted to point out while switching device

    1. BlackBerry protect might now always work. it worked for my friend but for me it didnot install any contacts, memos, ect... luckily i read this link before purchasing ( BlackBerry 10 Tutorials ) thanks to @joejerde

    2. but after switching device using media card u might still not find password keeper. thats coz it doesnt come pre-loaded on BB10. so go to BBworld, download the password keeper and upon opening the app it will prompt for new password. once new password is entered it will prompt for old password on old device to retreive all data (Both can be same. i tried it). thats all data is there.

    3. rest of the data like tasks and memos will be automatically stored in remember app unified entries

    4. however, there is a problem i faced with SD card swith device option. My contact were missing. there are nummber of ways to get ur contacts but i used the bluetooth on 9900 to transfer all contacts. i had 532 contaccts and it finished in 10-15 mins. thats quite fast i would say. all contacts are stored in .VCf format in downloads folder also.

    But overall, i have to say this phone is amazingly fast and smooth. apps work better, browser is excellent, games fell better, and the game center app, hub, flow, i can keep going. hope to read more good experience of other memebers.

    As an American who has watched the entire world get the Z10 while I frantically sit around on my hands, this post has added to my discontent and unhappiness. Sigh! I hope to add to this post with some good info and observations one day (although I might be waiting for the Q10), but for now.....I have nothing. Waaaaaahhhhh!!!!!

    *Thanks for your post veeru789!
    BB then, now, forever!

    There have definitely been some quirks while I've used the Z10. However, these seem to be less so as I carry on using it.

    One thing that is really ace is the Box sync which allows you to automatically upload videos and pictures as you take them, and is baked right into the OS to work really well. Plus you can choose to upload only via wifi if data consumption is a concern.

    One thing I do miss is the data compression. I'm definitely gobbling up more data and have hit my limit for this month. I'm putting it down to App downloads and send ING pictures but it is definitely something that I will have to keep my eye on for a while.

    I'm taking in quite a bit more data too, but it's from downloading apps/app updates and consuming media. It's my first month having my Z10 so it has been in my hand constantly. I'm guessing my data usage will decrease next month when the shine wears off and it just becomes an extension of my arm like my 9900 used to be.
    ______________

    The OS is extremely simple to use and the "addiction" has definitely carried over into the new OS. I find myself swiping up/over constantly to check my Hub, even though I know there's nothing new in there.

    Being a security enthusiast, I was happy to see Encryption available in the latest OS update. Device encryption + VPN connection = no worries.

    One feature I wish were easier to access is Screen Brightness. There should be a slider to adjust screen brightness in the pull-down Settings menu from the homescreen. I turn my brightness all the way down when I'm indoors to preserve battery life, but once I go outside I can't really see my screen. A quick toggle would make this much easier to adjust.

    Overall I am very happy with my Z10. It's not perfect, but I didn't expect it to be. It is still a very young OS, so it can only get better from here. I am very satisfied with the reliability, usability and features it offers for a 1st gen OS.

    @johnreid i noticed that if im playing games on the Z10 for say 10-15 mins the device gets heated. it becomes very hot on the back. im not sure if this is a battery issue or in general a Z10 issue. Have you noticed any such thing on urs?

    - - - Updated - - -

    @BBkyle agree with you 100%. overall this Z10 is a damn good, addictive device. barely a month after launch and we have an update already. so, im expecting it will only get better in the future.

    @Veeru, I have the same issue with the battery getting hot while playing certain games. Don't think it's anything to worry about, but it would be nice for this to be taken care of in future updates. I'm sure battery use is one of the top priorities right now.

    @Kyle, I'm the same way. I love to move in and out of the Hub. It's a habit!

    I'm really looking forward to the Android 4.1 runtime and OS 10.1.

    thanks joe for replying. i was getting worried that i received a faulty piece. But Like u said its not too much of a problem but when some of my friends use it and they notice this problem they are little worried. so now im not letting anyone play games on my ZEDLORD ) . Let them buy it i/o small issues stoping them from doing so. And hope BB takes up this issue and do something to rectify it soon.

    @Harmeling68, on the bright side by the time u receive your Z10 it will have more apps and hopefully all these minor issues we are talking about will be ironed out. Im still waiting for the latest OS update. for some reason its not being pushed by my carrier here in India. I guess i will have to use the Link software to upgrade.

    Love my Z10 find the keyboard so responsive and slick so much easier to type then a iPhone or Android device in my opinion battery life is about the same as what I was using on my Bold 9900which I am surprised about seeing as it is 4G but can get through a whole working day without having to recharge and another thing that hasn't changed is the UK carriers reluctance to push through OS updates still no word on if my network will be offering it always the same but that is a carrier issue rather then a phone issue.I do use up a lot more data so have to be more careful did 4gig last month on a 3gig plan and didn't do any streaming or anything but I do love this phone and there is plenty more to come from it

    Love it. Can't put it down.

    Biggest gripes currently are smaller features lacking from legacy devices. Knowing that BlackBerry is working on implementing them, I'm not too concerned that the future is very bright for the Z10 and BlackBerry 10 in general.

    Exactly. A lot of BlackBerry fans are making a big noise on the support forums about the missing legacy features.

    Give it a rest people. I'm sure that BlackBerry know that power users will want this!

    Yes I am a proud owner of the Z10. I would. Say it was a smooth transition for me from my 9800, to my Z10. The only problem I had was my missing blackberry protect which stores my task etc: I found. Way of getting them back with the help aa some technical support from BlackBerry.
    Looking forward to some more exciting news about the Z10. Good jobon team on this forum.

    seems the caribbean is not ready for the z10 on their network (according to multiple carrier reps)
