Dev Alpha B - No calls, No SMS

I've got this Dev-Alpha B Device that is updated to BlackBerry OS 10  v 10.0.9.388

 

This is the latest available.

 

The phone icon on home screen does not work, no dialer, no incoming calls possible and SMS/Text is'nt possible too. The Rogers sim i've inserted gets detected, 3G network is there, I can browse internet but the voice and text not working.

 

Any suggestions?

This is expected.  The BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha's are not intended to be used as a phone.

Really? :smileysurprised:

 

That comes as a surprise to me because I have this Dev-Alpha that I can use for both calling as well as for SMS using the usual OS that came as an update.

 

And what if my app is about calling or text messages?

[ Edited ]

This is the latest publicly and officially available os for Dev Alpha devices. These features are available, https://developer.blackberry.com/devzone/blackberry10devalpha/devalpha_update.html

Fully functional Hub
Chat app
Phone app
Maps app
Cards for email

 




And as Mark said, these devices are not intended for everyday use - it's strictly for BB 10 development purposes.

Thanks for your reply Borceg

I'm also looking for developing some phone and sms apps and the latest OS on my Dev Alpha B is not doing what Dev Alpha A can do . That's what's bothering me.
