    new Blackberry Z10 owner in UK

    Hi, just bought my Blackberry Z10, it been a long wait, thank you to every one who said wait for Z10,
    I set out to find one today called at four retailers in my area, black ones and contract customers have priority, and others four to six weeks wait,
    ended up at my regular retailer as I intended to, my other visits where to see if working demo Z 10 where there, yes all had good display near front
    of shops and Blackberry UK reps have visited all shops in my area, Blackberry UK have done a good job, ask about Z10 all staff new about the phone
    and well trained, back to my regular shop now resigned to waiting four/six weeks, hello sir a new Z10 ? The owner knows me All my devices supplied by him playbook as well, contract only I suppose? No sim free/ unlocked at official price and flip case and micro sim all in a good deal at 480GBP,
    he had Blackberry stand with all official cases on display other accessories to follow soon, and a few white Z10 if I prefered a white one, Blackberry phones are black?,this is my first BlackBerry phone, as I write this the new Z10 and case are on my desk as yet still sealed, I can not wait any longer
    to unbox them, I am amazed that all other members in Canada and the US ,have not received the Z10 on the same day as UK ,
    I hope you all get your phones as soon as Blackberry can get them there. Now off to set up and explore the new phone and BB10,
    will post again after using my Z10 for a while.

    Hi Joe, the Z10 comes in a small but solid black box with Z10 in blue/purple and BlackBerry in white, nothing else, inside the Z10 sits in a tray all black with Blackberry at the
    bottom of the phone in silver, it has three silver buttons on right side and one on top that's it, and two ports on left side, the back feels similar to playbook,no shiny plastic
    all matt and no finger prints, its size 4.2" Screen is just right, the overall size and its slim,no brick here I have small hands and can use the whole screen with ease,
    build quality is same as playbook first class, it comes with quick start guide in colour shows how to remove back pull up from bottom it warns it may bend, I used finger nails
    both sides at once gently no bending did not want to risk damage and it is a tight fit when re fitted, no flexing or creaking this phone is solid but not heavy feels premium quality,
    to me its a work of art all black a touch of class did not want to put it down, set up is quick and simple, with on screen gesture guide for any one not a Playbook owner,
    screen is sensitive and it flows smooth as silk, had to try browser first, desktop sites and with flash player switched on [ off by default ] it is fast loading and played a video clip
    on BBC I player no switch to wi-fi, 3g stream like playbook,video played smoothly and sound in sync picture quality/colours/ sound first class,
    the key board is the best I have used , email set up is easy, I have eight accounts hotmail/Gmail/ Aol, it set them up as quick as I could type, I'm not good,
    the hub brings everything in one place, a quick peek at mail/messages etc without loosing the webpage a brilliant idea, and swipe up to unlock no button needed,
    the camara with time shift mode is good fun and a chance remove a bad picture, picture quality is good ,[ but I am spoilt as a Nokia N8 camara user it beats lumia 920, yes I tried
    windows phone its going now, ] it comes with 2g/3g+/4g all for UK networks ready to use out of the box,reception is very good , wi fi connects quickly and no lost connection,
    WiFi hot spot easy set up and all devices I tried to connect did first time, but does use vital power but nice to have, battery life on first charge and I have used all Z10s
    systems pretty hard, is I think is very good , after a few cycles it will be better,4g will reduce run time but speed costs,
    BlackBerry world, apps are there I found tune in radio app it works well and is vital for me, Skype would be nice to have, and Angry Birds Star Wars its free, had to download it
    for my granddaughters, honestly, better try it out, all pre installed apps work well, no bloat ware here as some systems have, but for my needs the excellent browser with flash support I can do every thing required, flash player was the bonus, I forgot the Z10 has a compact charger and USB cable good quality, and headset is ok I never use them,
    I selected the genuine flip shell case fits well and good quality and will protect the phone,not cheap worth it,
    when I said I might buy the new Blackberry phone to family and friends [ all I phone/ I pad owners] was I mad Blackberries are rubbish, don't waste your money,
    red rag to a bull, so here I am with my first BlackBerry phone, its mind blowing, even better than my Nokia N9,
    would I recommend the Z10 yes, and am proud to have a Blackberry phone it is up with the best, buy one and enjoy.

    Hi original Lucy , pictures do not show the Z10 at its best you have to see/hold it to appreciate it, try a demo in-store its the only way, shame you have to wait till August,
    but you are in for a treat, Blackberry have created a phone that can stand along with the best,

    Question: Does the Z10 have a single volume setting like the playbook or does it have sound profiles like the current blackberries?

    Hi there is a master volume control,

    - - - Updated - - -

    Hi just fitted my Z10 into the flip shell case, perfect fit, and it has a neat feature if you leave screen on and close it screen shuts off, and then open it screen comes on
    no swipe needed, and it is NFC friendly, brilliant, tested the browser today its very fast loading web sites, better than playbook, and voice control is ok, but does fail some times,
