What's the version of the latest Q10 software update?

Earlier this week BB ran a full page ad in the Wall Street Journal.  In one part, it mentioned that the software on its new Z10 and Q10 devices is in its third version since the rollout.

 

My Q10 reports that v. 10.1.0.2030 is the latest version.  It hasn't updated in a long time.

 

Does my software version have anything to do with the fact that my carrier is AT&T and that AT&T may not support newer software versions?

 

I'd be grateful if someone would tell me what is the latest version and whether the carrier makes any difference.

 

Thanks,

 

C W Byrd

Re: What's the version of the latest Q10 software update?

that latest official released by BlackBerry is up around 10.1.0.4687, i think.

AT&T as is normal, is behind the ball in releasing the latest.

 

You can manually upgrade to a higher release if you choose, let me know if you do.

 

10.2 is around the corner for release.

When you say around the corner do you think 10.2 will arrive this month? I'm on EE in the UK. Thanks

That's the rumor... October.

But I am not placing any bets.

Re: What's the version of the latest Q10 software update?

Thank you for your prompt reply.  To upgrade manually, I would need step-by-step instructions.  My Q10 says that it's running the current version.  Consequently, the "check for new software" option doesn't help me.

My Verizon Q10 shows I have the latest update at 10.1.0.4189.

 

I now proudly subscribe to the theory that "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." No more life on the bleeding edge for me, installing leaked versions, etc. As long as it's running like a Swiss watch I won't fuss with it until some new killer/must have feature comes along.

R,   Which is exactly why I began the "V 10.2 advice" thread.

 

My Q10s are doing great so I'm trying to figure out why I should _risk_ upgrading to V 10.2 when it comes out.

Re: What's the version of the latest Q10 software update?

You are absolutely right!  I'm getting ready to leave town, and the last thing that I need over the weekend is a Q10 that won't reboot after an upgrade.  I suppose that I should wait until AT&T gets around to making the updates available to me.

 

Gratefully,

seebyrdie_ok, yes wait until you're back home and decide. If the past is any indicator, AT&T won't have the 10.2 upgrade soon. 10.2 does have some pretty good improvements and new features, not life-altering, but very very nice ones.

Re: What's the version of the latest Q10 software update?

Thanks, J.  I don't need the new features, but I'm really looking forward to the improvements.  Meanwhile, I'll continue to watch the newspaper.  The last that I read was that Lenovo is a possible suitor.

 

Take care,

 

C
