Re: Skype, Viber, WhatsApp on Z10

 

if this issue of whatsapp and sky not sorted out in due course, black berry will be losing out in business. i bought the phone and i can't use it due to lack of whatsapp. 10 Z10 was return back this week to service provided as most people were disappointed in this.

Can we have a specific date to when we should expect for all this bulks to be piloted?

Coos this is call smart phone

Re: Skype, Viber, WhatsApp on Z10

WhatsApp is coming in March for sure, confirmed by both Blackberry and WhatsApp teams. Also, Skype will be released within a few weeks which is something supported by Blackberry team tweets I saw on the forum sites. Before USA launch of Z10, we will see a lot of improvements, I believe.

If you downloaded it, it must be working.  I tried downloading from this link, it showed that it was downloading but then was unable to open the file.  am I doing something wrong?

Re: Skype, Viber, WhatsApp on Z10

THanks, it seems that I must first download on my pc and then transfer to the BB Z10. What a mission!

Will have to try at home after work.  Lets see if it will work

Re: Skype, Viber, WhatsApp on Z10

Expected others that I NEED & USE regularly; Kayak (their #1 app) and PDF viewer.  Considering so MANY of my contacts have switched to iPhone, I NEED direct connection to them!
