I have a blackberry 9810 from work and this is my first blackberry. I personally don't like the fact that there are hardly any apps that I can't get that everyone else with an android or Iphone can get.
This phone is from work and all of us sales reps are pushing for Androids / Iphones which i think we can get in August. We also have the option for the Z10 though I doubt I will get it because of the lack of capabilities/apps like this.
Just curious if we will be able to get the Entune app or if there is a workaround?
Solved! Go to Solution.

The only work-around I have is actually pairing the Z10 to 2013 Toyota and able to use it for phone calls only. None of the features of Navigation, nothing on Internet. I turned off connection to music because that is what locked-up my Z10. It keeps sending a pop-up reading that it cannot find music files. This is a secure work phone. I do not use it for music files. So, I took a .wav file of a voice mail message where all I say is yes. It would not take a blank message. Then, I sent the e-mail to the Z10. Then, I opened the .wav file. Then, I saved the .wav file on the Z10. Now, finally, I can connect the Z10 to the 2013 Toyota. So, I can use the phone on the steering wheel. That's all I've got, if that is what you mean by a work-around, rajc5b ?
I also got out my BlackBerry Bold 9870 and paired it to the Toyota and can also make and answer calls on the steering wheel.
I called Toyota who wrote the entune app. They state that they in the future will work on the app for Z10. Really sad actually, rajc5b.
I bought apple's new product. Took it back.
I bought the Android and I will give it apps. I had a HTC. Took that right back.
Maybe if I had bought the Samsung Galaxy.
I bought the BlackBerry Z10. I am keeping it. Best BlackBerry phone I've had and I have had 10 BlackBerry phones going back to beginning and before that had many other phones.
I just went to BlackBerry World, and it doesn't even take you to a screen that entune doesn't work on Z10, rajc5b. Of course they should do that. Instead on a Google search I got to this :
That supposedly is entune. But, everything is now blanked-out on it, so you cannot even see the poor review rankings.
I did download when I bought the Z10 several of the higher rated free apps. I have seen no less than about 5 updates for each. Every couple of days, they send me notices a new release is out of each. Really sad. I am not wasting my time uploading new app s/w releases every 5 minutes.
With the help of folks on this forum donating their time, I have a working phone.
Just none of the features of entune.
Except the phone works.
Well, sort of. Remember the .wav file me saying yes I saved on the Z10 ?
I hear that in the car about every 3 minutes. Yes.
Before that, I had a pop-up saying no music files found.
How absolutely bloody silly.
I need a pop-up to tell me that ?
That pop-up pops-up every 5 seconds. Can never get to do anything on the BlackBerry Z10 because of it. Totally locks it up.
Now, I can use it but listen to yes now every 3 minutes.
