BlackBerry Z10 stuck "Checking for updates" first time setup.

I have just bought the Z10 and it keeps getting stuck while checking for updates. I have rebooted it a few times, taken the battery and sim card out and then rebooted it a few times with no success. What should I do?

Maybe you can try to connect to the Blackberry Link and use the reload OS.

Yeah, I have tried this too, twice. It doesn't work, it doesn't even reload it :smileysad:

Go to here http://us.blackberry.com/software/smartphones/update/blackberry10-os.html (remember using IE) and update with that tool.

I have the same problem. I just ordered my phone, is new, the setup is not even completed and is stuck for hours now on "Checking for updates". I have a Z10 smatphone and I am really upset! I tried restarting it, remove battery.. nothing helped.. Please give me an idea about what to do!

Try checking that you have WiFi connected and try again.

I know you shouldn't need to, but it helped me when that happened.
