z10 os 10, BBM that's useless and can't BC

Hi,

I have had all the blackberry in your range from the bottom up.

Worked very nice with my 9900 touch but upgraded(downgraded) to the new z10

only to find that I can't BC to all my contacts in BBM!!!

I don't and can't see why they have removed the "select all"function I I really don't have time to select 4000 people every time I send a BC.

I use this device extensive for a Community Police Forum Network, so its crucial I have this function

 

What do I do, cause if RIM does not fix this I am converting to SAMSUNG after several year of supporting Blackberry

 

Please Help

hello,

1) if you use a Samsung phone you won't be able to broadcast towards your current BBM contacts.
2) if you stay your Z10 you may get the feature in an upcoming version of BBM.

It's your call.

Hi,

 

I know that Samsung doent support BBM, just a point I was making.

 

I visited Vodaworld in Midrand and spoke to the Blackberry Buddy's to my surprise they could not help me either and had zero knowledge on the Z10.

 

I have loaded Leaked os10.1 and got the select all button back but now another problem where you can only send to all contacts and can't select or deselect different contact categories!

 

Another frustration is that I you can't turn the phone to its side to have a bigger screen (k/board ) to type!

 

Battery Life still a huge problem, 1/2 to 3/4 day...eish why?????????

Can't switch off BBM status update off  for other people either! 

 

I feel like back in the stone age with new Z10

 

I hope they fix all these problems soon!

 

frustrated like hell!!!!!!!

 

this is not a toy for me but a major tool in our organizazion to fight crime!

I know, but I have noticed that you can use landscape in BBM if you open BBM from the Hub. Does not work for all, but it's a convenient tip.

the battery life is lower than on previous BlackBerry phones, but on par with other touchscreen smartphones. The reasons for BlackBerry and other brands are:

- bigger screen

- internet does not go through BIS anymore (= uses 4 times more data than in the past).
