I was given a z10 the other day and got it activated via att in the US. The phone works great, however the software is very dated and id like to update.
Currently, I have OS 10.0.10.261, and would like to get back up to speed. However, everytime I attempt to update it states there are no software updates available and that I have the most recent software out there. This will happen if I use BB link OR the web update.
Ive tried to do this with and without the SIM installed with the same result. I even went ahead to a security wipe level and it just wont find the update.
Is this possible becuase I am in the US? What is going on here?

Risk is, you could brick your phone or cause it to not fuction correctly at all. Personally, I am not going to do this route.

Going with a "leaked" OS is really the only option I can see so far. Others have tried ordering a SIM card that is international and is stated to work.
Found this on CB

DV, and to those having this same issue:
I got it-
-Load blackberry Link
-Do a FULL back up
-Read the link for the Leaked OS on crackberry's website
-Start at your own risk
-Took roughly 10-15min to complete, then did a backup restore.
All is well, I now run 10.0.10.648 and can have whatsapp along with other applicaitons that were buggy before.
Keep in mind- THIS IS AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!

I was not able to fill in the APN info on my Z10, so I uploaded the leaked OS 10.1 . Now my phone now works great. However, the leaked OS had only a few apps and I an wondering how to load apps not on the BB site (e.g. docs to go)?

I am in Sweden: a country with few BBs. Not sure why but Iphones are much more common (my family has 4 of them). I'll keep looking for the recent OS update and hope that it will solve the problems of factory installed apps.
