I seem to remember the sales patter going " The Z10 will do everything previous handsets did and more " Eh! I don't think so!:No:


I don't recall that. I do recall Mr. Heins saying this would be a new BlackBerry like never before, built from the ground up.

 

And, for what it's worth, I agree, the group texts and email functions need to be returned.

Re: Group texts

I appreciate that RIM or Blackberry would have been unlikely to deceive. However I was meaning the people at the coal face who are retailing the Z10. I am assuming they are ilinformed or their product training isn't quite up to speed yet.

Re: Group texts

ViciousFerret, I guess the question would be, when will RIM have this service available. This is real downside to this phone for me. I would not have purchased it at the time had I known there were issues like this. I would have kept my Torch until these were worked out.

Please tell me that BB is working on it. There are other apps that I have purchased that also won't work on my Z10. Very disappointing.

I do like the phone and speed, but this still would have been a deal breaker. I rely heavily on my group texting.

Re: Group texts

Same here I would have stayed with torch. I have also noticed z10 will not allow you to forward text as emails or emails as text. Rim needs to make this phone at least equal to the services we had vs Os 7. I will give them a few weeks to get our services back.

Re: Group texts

Maybe we need to list these services one by one that they should restore?

Re: Group texts

Do be careful the Z10 turns texts to groups into a multimedia message and my carrier charges for those so not inclusive of your contract.

Re: Group texts

Also z10 will not two way sync with yahoo contacts. You can add a contact in the phone it will show up as un filed contact on your yahoo account. But if you add a new contact into yahoo it will not show up in your phone. BlackBerry desktop manager would always sync them two way if you requested. I like all my contacts at my disposal whenever I need to reach them. Come on rim

SMSbyNow. I just discovered this new group text app. Let's hope all 28 contacts get the message. Thank you RIM for providing the app!
