Re: Why I'm giving up my Q10 to go back to the Bold 9900

Luis, your morning post (and all that followed) has been removed... You had concluded about apathy that ruins things and I had concurred and added that it was also the "wolves in sheep skin" that some other poster had mentioned previously... Unnecessary censorship that raises questions rather than answering them! Best, John.

Please can we now get back to rowing about whether the Q10 is the start of a glorious future or the harbinger of doom for Blackberry?

Re: Why I'm giving up my Q10 to go back to the Bold 9900

Unfortunately, the Q10 is dragging down whatever marketing good the Z10 might have done for BBRIM, is the sad case of somebody drowning to save another,,, whoever is running this company is looking up at their internal organs from a very small orifice,,,,,I hope the 9700's come soon,,,and RIM survives,,,despite my anger towards them,,

Re: Why I'm giving up my Q10 to go back to the Bold 9900

Thank you, Robert and Nathan! I cannot immediately add on or improve on your posts; unfortunately I am in total agreement. More recent posts seem to have devolved into boyish insults. I am so disappointed in the Q10 that I am beside myself (feeling 'right' and not at all 'happy'). I do not want to give up on BB. I so want them to succeed and provide those of us who know that there is no substitute for any of their devices (pre-10). I am now shopping for a new 9900 and hoping that it will be able to function long enough with its operating system until BB gets it "right"....and yes, please be reading these threads BB, I may just go landline and retire. "Is there anybody in there?" (Roger and David) Thinking hopefully, Marianne Marshall

Re: Why I'm giving up my Q10 to go back to the Bold 9900

Marianne (MiaCam),

 

Noticed that you're shopping for a new 9900. You may not be affected, but those of us who's carrier has UMA (Wi-Fi voice calling) have to be careful.

   

Ran into an issue - I have a 9900, unlocked, but not purchased through T-Mobile. So it does not do voice calling over Wi-Fi, even though voice calling over Wi-Fi is a feature of T-Mobile. The "branding" of the 9900 that I have is not "T-Mobile". It has a non-T-Mobile "Vendor ID", which prevents voice calling over Wi-Fi. Since it's unlocked, it does everything that it should when it's on cellular; when it's on Wi-Fi, data works fine, but not voice calling.

  

So now I'm purchasing a used 9900, that was used ("branded") T-Mobile, so that I'll be able to make voice calls over Wi-Fi.  

  

It may be worthwhile -- if you get a used 9900 -- to be sure that it was used on your carrier (at least if that carrier had Wi-Fi calling). If you but a new one direct from your carrier, there would be no problems.

  

I did see a note in the BlackBerry Forums that it is not possible to change the Vendor ID ("branding") of a BlackBerry, that's why I'm getting a used one "branded" T-Mobile - my carrier.

   

I do, as I believe most of us do, wish RIM / BlackBerry to succeed. But it's a quite painful for a lot of us right now.

 

      Kind regards,

                              GeorgeB

Re: Why I'm giving up my Q10 to go back to the Bold 9900

I find different views refreshing, but I do think you should try it before saying you like it. Also note that what read as complaints are also feedback to Blackberry motivated not be the fun of bitching but because i BBerry doesn't understand why the device falls short of expectations the company as well as we users wll be worse off.

Re: Why I'm giving up my Q10 to go back to the Bold 9900

I moved to the Q 10 because of early rave reviews from a few people who bought the buzz but never really used the device.  I thought it was exactly what I wanted/needed - a device far closer to the IPhone in compatibility with a keyboard and other blackberry features.  I see the future of the device and my future satisfaction as turning on what limitations are software limitations and what are built into the hardware.  It would be nice to know.  If the different keys can be programmed by the user or by Blackberry to perform essential functions - answer phone, move the cursor right/left/up/down, find contacts, speed dial, etc, then I am willing to live with my mistake of becoming an unwitting beta tester and await the improvements that should be built into the next iteration of the OS, though it would be nice if BBerry (How much easier it was to write RIM) did something for us early users in the form of extended warranties or truly useful complementary aps.  If the limitations are hardware limitations then as soon as my commitment to ATT ends, I become an X Blackberry user.

Re: Why I'm giving up my Q10 to go back to the Bold 9900

Just a heads up... using my Q10 with OS 10.2 loaded, it rocks the socks off anything.

The new Toast notifications, lock screen message preview, text editing popup menu is new, it's just almost a different device. Worth checking into.

Do you have speed dial? Or a functional $ key? Do you like the hub icon?
