augusts, "Smth arnd" what language is this?
keithfowleruk, multiple icons to your email? One swipe to the Hub works. Or use the Hub icon for direct access.
If you truly intend to smash it with a hammer, I'll give you $50 USD for it, unharmed.
Whahahaha!! Brilliant! Although I'm not the Q10's biggest fan, I would also pay $50 for it.
I think I expressed my hatred towards the Q10 plenty of times, but I'm slowly but surely getting used to it. I just upgraded to the latest firmware from Crackberry, made a bit of a difference too (still checking out the differences).
There is and will always be certain things I can't get used to, like the touch navigation and lack of old BB logic. The rest of the phone truly is amazing. I was just telling someone today, with old BB's, you could "right click" (hit the BB button) and all the logical "next steps" are right there. With the Q10 there are some useful icons, but not always as logical as with the old. I'm sure if we start pointing them out BB would bring them back. BUT, that said, the OS10 is still light years better than Android. I'm still considering an upgrade to iPhone 5s (5s is the one with biometrics etc right?), but this is mainly due to its excellent voice commands. But again, that being said, I was truly amazed when my BB after the last upgrade could understand my wife's name (I chose real English (UK) during setup, perhaps that made the difference). But the BB's voice dialing takes ages to "think" what you meant and do processing etc where the iPhone does it on the fly. If BB can get voice dialing 100% right and as quick as iPhone, I'll be the happiest BB user!
One new problem (actually an old returning issue) after the upgrade is my contacts. I'm syncing with my Google Apps account, and plenty of my contacts sync'd the phone number entries with a preceding "Phone Number:" . So If I wish to call eg Herman Venter, his mobile number would be saved as this: "Phone Number: 082 123 1234". Offcourse no phone will recognise this. Funny thing is I fixed this on all my regular contacts, and I was expecting my BB to update my Google account with the updated contact info. But it never did that, so I now have to redo all my contacts again.
To add to the above, I today tried copying and pasting the number just so I could quickly dial someone (while driving offcourse!). I managed to copy the "Phone Number: 082 123 1234" (using both hands whilst using my knee to steer), then pasted it in the phone app. I then wanted to scroll to the left so I could remove the "Phone Number: " prefix, but noted it was impossible to scroll left or right in the phone app. (JSanders, please tell your BB colleages to fix this! jk). I ended up flipping between contacts and phone app so I could manually type in the number. And yes, I know I should probably be able to remember the entire number and just type it from memmory, but when you're in a hurry and frustrated with technology, you can't remember.
But all and all, I'm a happier OS10 user after the upgrade, should have done it long time ago!

Another reason for keeping the Bold 9900 as my device -- a Feb 5th post on CrackBerry. There's three pages of comments, with a lot more info; the last comment was on Friday, Feb 7th:
"A news today came out that 10.2.1.537 has a bug where when the policy is set for apps to not allow access to the address data, any Android app can still access it.
BlackBerry said they know about it and will be issuing an update...

Thanks for the quick response.
While the vulnerability may be only in regard to BES use, it still is a significant vulnerability !!!
It should be remedied quickly, without having to wait for the cellular operators to post a new update for their customers...many have been using the 'leaked' updates, which are very nice.
And it surely doesn't make me comfortable, a BlackBerry user for better than 13 years and before the first cellular BlackBerry. Don't expect that the 'explanation' of only BES users makes the rest of us (non-BES users) comfortable...BlackBerry's claim and a significant advantage is it's security.
Hope that there's a quick response, both here and on CrackBerry, with a fix that we don't have to wait on cellular operators for.
BTW, I've been looking around for a company that provides hosted BES, so that I can get some experience with Q10 BES. If you have a suggestion, I'd appreciate your suggestion: please let me know, either in the thread or by direct message.
Thanks again, and kind regards,
