Limited Number Of Accounts

I utilize Many email accounts - and never reached a limit on my 9300 but my Q10 says I can not add any more accounts, i'm at my limit. Is this a hard limit (hardware or OS simply can not handle it) or can we request this feature to be expanded? Better yet, is there a workaround?

Re: Limited Number Of Accounts

No response at all? The hub loses significance. Sure I can have addresses forward to ones already in the hub but then I can't send from them. I need to compartmentalize my various businesses, organizations, financial, etc....

Re: Limited Number Of Accounts

Sooner or later I hope this will be addressed. I love my BlackBerry life but I need this upper ceiling raised or removed. I don't want to think about alternatives. Is there some limitation to BB10 that causes this and I need to go to an older OS?

Re: Limited Number Of Accounts

It's been ten in the past. What are you seeing the limit on #BlackBerry10?

Re: Limited Number Of Accounts

I have:

  • 9 GMail accounts (email only)
  • 1 Hotmail account (email, contacts, calendar)
  • 1 Yahoo account (email only)
  • 1 Evernote account
  • 1 Twitter account
  • 1 FaceBook account
  • 1 LinkedIn account
  • BBM
  • SMS

All are visible as selections in my HUB for all functions and features. So, I'm actually not sure what the limit is, if there is one at all. Hence, the OP may need to provide more details about what happens when attempting to configure additional accounts.

Re: Limited Number Of Accounts

[ Edited ]

I have this in my hub:

 

1 AOL email

1 Walla email

4 of my Gmail emails

1 varial tech domain email

4 hostpapa domain emails

facebook, twitter, linkedin,

BBM, foursquare, calls, voicemail, PIN (these five not listed under accounts)

 

When I go to add another account it says:

 

Too many Accounts

You have reached the maximum number of accounts. Please delete an account and try again.

 

11 does seem to be the limit with BB10.

 

I had a few more on my Curve 9300 OS 5 (13+) and then also after upgrading to OS 6.

 

The reason I got the Q10 was for dealing with emails. I hope this limit will be raised. It doesn't seem like a memory thing. It seems weird that 10 is more limited than 5 or 6. I never used 7.  

 

Does the social media take up email account slots?  Does anyone know a way around this limit?

Re: Limited Number Of Accounts

Actually, on the legacy BBOS, ten was the limit, so you could have had more, unless there was some anomoly with your device.

 

I don't think the social media take up email slots for the limit.
