Verizon Z10 not showing latest release in BlackBerry World

I received my new BlackBerry Z10 from Verizon yesterday and I headed to BlackBerry World to view my app.  I was shocked to see that it showed an older version of my app in BlackBerry World.  So, I bought it to verify what actually downloaded and sure enough it is not the latest release.  It shows as 2.1.1 on my Z10, but from my vendor portal and from the web based BlackBerry World, the latest release is 2.1.6.  It worked fine on my Dev Alpha.  Any ideas?  I removed my app from sale as I do not want people with a Verizon Z10 to download this old version.

Did you have carrier restrictions on the release package?

Re: Verizon Z10 not showing latest release in BlackBerry World

I have it set for all carriers and I did check the release and have All selected for the Z10.  I went ahead and individually selected each phone model just to be sure, but this is an issue with the Verizon Z10 OS version.  A number of apps are showing as not available for the Verizon Z10 when they can be downloaded for the AT&T Z10.

Verizon on BBOS devices have blocked certain apps that were available on other carriers. Does not make sense about the version. You would think since BBW is the only conduit, they they would not provided that feature to carriers (blocking apps and versions).

There is a blog post on CrackBerry about that, it seems BB and Verizon are aware of the issue
