  • BlackBerry Update 10.2.1 Now Available From Verizon

    What's that? A BlackBerry 10 update and it's available in the US?!

    Verizon subscribers - you can indeed believe your eyes as the ground-breaking 10.2.1 software update is now available for the Z10, Q10 and Z30.

    If you are lucky enough to own one of these devices then hit the 'Check for Updates' button in the Settings app.

    In case you're not sure what treats others have already been enjoying in this release, here's the low-down:

    Customize Pinch Gesture to Filter BlackBerry Hub
    BlackBerry Hub lets you access all your messages and notifications in one place. A new feature lets you instantly filter the message list in the Hub. You can customize the Hub to show only Unread Messages, Flagged Messages, Draft Messages, Meeting Invites, Sent Messages or Level 1 Alerts. Once the filter criterion is set, you can simply activate it with a pinch gesture on the Hub’s message list.


    Simplified Phone Experience
    The phone includes a new incoming call screen that lets you swipe to the left to answer or swipe right to ignore a call. New intuitive icons allow you to instantly silence the call, or send a Reply Now response through BBM, SMS or email that you can’t answer the phone right away. You can choose from a list of standard automated responses or respond with a personalized note.


    SMS and Email Groups
    You can now create SMS and email groups for more efficient broadcast communications.


    Actionable Lock Screen Notifications
    You can now "Tap to open" a message that appears on the lock screen, letting you respond to an important message much quicker or to check messages more discreetly.


    Picture Password for Quick Unlocking
    You can quickly unlock your phone using a combination of a picture and a number (0-9) of your choice, which you place at a particular point on the image. When you try to unlock the phone, the picture will appear along with a grid of random numbers. To unlock, simply drag the grid so the number you selected overlays the particular point on the image.


    Customizable Quick Settings Menu
    You can now customize what appears on the Settings menu, which includes features such as being able to quickly change the Brightness of the smartphone’s display, toggle various network connections, and access the built-in flashlight. The Settings menu also includes a toggle that lets you instantly switch between your Personal and Work perimeter.


    Offline Browser Reading Mode
    You can now save the current web page you’re on for later viewing, even if you are offline or without an Internet connection.


    Preferred Contact Sync
    You can now choose the sync source for your Contacts ensuring you always have the most up-to-date contact details. When adding a new contact you can designate which sources you want the contact info to sync with, such as the corporate address book, Gmail, Hotmail, etc.


    Device and Battery Monitor
    A new and improved device monitor provides you with essential details on battery usage, the impact of installed apps on battery life and memory usage and storage, as well as CPU stats.


    FM Radio
    If you have a BlackBerry Z30, BlackBerry Q10 or BlackBerry Q5 smartphone, the new software update unlocks the built-in FM radio in those handsets. You can listen to local FM stations, which does not require any network connection.


    Automatic Software Updates
    OS updates can be set to happen automatically over a Wi-Fi® connection to help ensure you’re always benefiting from the latest and best possible customer experience.


    Enterprise Features
    When combined with BES10 version 10.2, enterprise customers will gain additional security features and IT policies for when more granular controls are required, such as for regulated industries and for organizations that work with sensitive data.
