    Had the Z10 for two weeks, returned it, left a review on CB.

    Gonna test out the Android/HTC One now
    I thought it was funny that one of the replies mentioned disappointment over the Z10 not having as many apps as the BB OS 7 devices. (I had an OS 7 device, and its app selection is by no means what one would call stellar.)

    Android synchronization is the best, it's the reason Android won me over. This goes for, contacts, calendar, notes, and documents. What some folks don't like is that it has to sync with Google's services.

    I don't know what your trying to sync with but I've used Gsyncit for Outlook and Awesync for Lotus. Both work great and have great customization features that best Google calendar sync by far.
    Thanks for the mention of Gsyncit. I downloaded the trial and it looks promising, but it keeps trying to change Outlook appointments to bizarre, undesired dates and times based on its misreading of my Google calendar. Any experience with this behavior? It would be a deal-breaker for permanent replacement of Google Calendar Sync, obviously, if it couldn't be fixed.

    Hardly a surprise to me. I've been predicting rims demise for quite a while. Can't wait to hear that they have been sold. Rim by any name is doomed in the near future. They put down injured horses don't they?

    There are so many other texting platforms that we don't need blackberry messenger. When I switched from blackberry to my first Android phone one of my big concerns with the lack of blackberry messenger. On day one I soon realized that that was something I didn't need to worry about

    Those numbers seem quite inflated possibly to get page views.

    I wouldn't return my Z10...
    I like it, but there's no way (currently) that it can replace my Nexus 4 as my primary device even after sideloading over 20 of my main day-to-day Apps & games.
    It has however replaced my WP7 & iPhone 5 as my primary "non-Android" backup.

    In my opinion, anyone looking to replace a highend Android with it will be disappointed but someone looking to replace their existing Blackberry or Windows Phone because Android & iOS is too daunting, they'll enjoy it.

    I've yet to meet a person who has heard of the Galaxy S4 either. Most people just just know group Android as a single category. That doesn't appear to have a bearing on how well they sell.

    No I've never had that problem the only issue I experienced was with birthdays. It made an entry for each birthday going back year's and going forward.

    When I installed the app I made the sync forward moving.

    I will say this the dev is very active and always fixing issues. I'd recommend getting in contact with them (him) about this issue.

    I will say this about the app it synchronizes everything notes, email, calendar, todo, and contacts. You can also control the direction two way or one way. It's a great app is say work on resolving the issue.

    I loved my gs3.

    I sold it after 5 days on the z10 and don't miss it at all. So I guess I fly in the face of your opinion. I happily gave up a high end android for it and would do it again.

    The z10 is one of the most solid phones I've used in a long time. And as far as apps its night and day over Os7, and the ones from android I really want like Flipboard or stumbleupon or Netflix I've side loaded and they are working perfectly.

    Last thing...I'm platform agnostic but I've always had a soft spot for BlackBerry and Palm/webos. I couldn't stick with the bold 9900, there was too much missing. I set up a gs3 for a customer today and tried to swipe up for the hub. I don't think I'll be able to use a phone without the hub again.

    Agree, I was so against this phone but after playing around with it all the old blackberry nostalgia came back and after figuring out how to side load the apps. It just sweetened the deal.

    A note to others: beware gSyncit. It seems to work, but the evaluation copy loaded a boatload of spyware, adware and similar crapware onto my laptop.

    "to be used for nonclassified communications, such as email and basic Web browsing"

    You don't even read what you post, do you? This just let's employees use their own devices on government networks for non-classified casual use.

    As usual, no other company has come up with strong enough security for transmitting sensitive data. Blackberry continues to hold the monopoly on that sector of the market.

    You're wasting your time dude, leave them to their blindness and enjoy the phones you want. I think BB did great with the new phones and OS.

    I agree, bb did just fine with the new phone. I used bb for 6 years but if I'm going to learn and stick with a full touch, may as well go for the note 2. Which I did. The z10 was very nice. Fluid. Awesome phone with all the comfort of the familiar bb we all love. I just can't see sticking around for a q10 and have to squint watching a movie and trying to operate that small touchscreen just for the sake of a physical qwerty. I'm not getting used to a touch keyboard, I hate it. Even with auto correct, swype and SwiftKey... I still suck. I was lightening fast on my blackberry , I'm a very fast typist. But, I guess over time (maybe 5 friggin years?) I'll get better.

    Haven't you heard about Knox? Samsung galaxy s4 phones with Knox security are about to replace the US Dept.of Defense's BB phones.

    I often find it easier and more accurate to swipe with my stylus. Altho I also swipe with my index finger. Both of which are much better for me than trying to thumb type.

    Ridin' a Note 2 blast

    I just wish someone would invent a snap on physical qwerty for these large phones. Does anyone else think this would be a great idea? I believe it would work fantastically. Sits right on top of the screen and snaps on and off. It could even be hinged to one side so it's permanently attached to the phone. I wouldn't care if it was or wasn't permanently attached, as long as I could have that irreplaceable tactile feedback only achieved by a physical qwerty. This note 2 would rock with that feature.
    I have 3 old 9930's that I would love to experiment with and Frankenstein the keyboard onto this phone using the above mentioned technology.
