Long time user. Very happy with the new phone and software.
I would like to make a suggestion. As a loyal BB user and fan, I get frustrated when another device can do something my BB cannot....something that makes sense and is needed (I don't care about the add ones and APS I'll never use as a 'BB' client)
Sharing Video sucks on the BB, always has and must be addressed. The new camera is great, but unless my wife takes a very very very very short video of the kids, she must upload it to you tube in order to share it.....she should be able to BBM/text me the video.
I hope some BB users agree, I'd like to keep my wife in a blackberry (she's always had one also and loves the Keyboard, upgrade to Q10, doesn't use it for business at all) I'm a shareholder and a fan of the product....but not being able to share video with the push of a button (we don't use You Tube, don't care too) is a good reason for my wife to have an I PHONE......the last thing I want my BB to make me is frustrated and having to upload video to the internet to share it........FRUSTRATING! Sort it out.
The new device does a good job fulfilling the needs of business users (loyal BB users) and has built a platform that fulfills important wants of the current smart phone user (many old and current BB users).
Little things like video sharing make a huge difference for the avg smart phone user, the stay at home moms, the non business users, students etc...

Thank you for the response John......
You've stated this is a bell issue, not a software/design issue...I'm no techy, but are you saying that the individuals I see sharing videos.... lets say the I Phone, have contacted bell about this issue? And bell allowing them to share their videos in a efficient manner?

I think you're dead wrong John....it makes no sense Bell would have double standards (yes I am on Bell, switched from Rogers with the new Z10)....Blackberry users have different restrictions then Samsung, nokia, HTC and apple?
And if you're right and they do, we shouldn't be having this discussion, Blackberry should address it....not me not any single Blackberry user. Nobody wants a rash...and that's what this is. I'd be very disappointed to find out this is a simple issue, and has been for 10 years, between Blackberry and its various carrier agreements.
If you're implying I need a better plan in order to send regular videos....I can guarantee I don't have any, nor have ever had a plan that has any kind of restrictions.
Is it possible you're not understanding the original complaint....I can send and receive very very very short video, but nothing over a few seconds. BB has always been like this, 'video is too large to send'...or if you get a video from another device its too large to receive.

I've never used a chat room or posted anything to the internet before. Not being the sharpest knife in the drawer when it comes to electonics,I was apprehesive posting anything to the site.
I made this post as I was with the understanding that the company would be taking serious/ligidimate concerns into consideration for upgrades, not to have a pointless conversation.... is there a better place to send these suggestions?
Now I'm stuck in a conversation with you.....that sucks.....BB sucks at transferring or recieving videos, always have. If you own a BB, try it for yourself before coming on here and making an arguement with no merrit. Can't send a 20 second video to another BB 10 user (sorry can send but can't open), can't send a 5 second video via BBM or text.....6MB clearly is not GOOD ENOUGH. If you don't understand the problem, don't butt in...I only hope someone at the company sees my post and takes it into consideration when sending the new software updates next time around.
Please don't reply
