To reply to my own post,

 

One thing that's interesting about this post thus far and somewhat disheartening:

 

So far 6 people have commented on their frustrations regarding a near touch only device for Blackberry.  Good start for a post only 24 hours old.  But this same post has 174 views.

 

That means only 4.5% of the people so far seem to share in these frustrations enough to comment.  Based on my friends observation earlier, that would mean over 95% of those that read this post (which we can infer already have some kind of vested interest in the platform because otherwise why are they here) support Blackberries new position.

bots and spiders can change that count, you had 2300 views and now over 3000 from my bot scanning the page

 

i read you post and dont find the Q10 as bad. yes it is missing some of the Java features but it is a new OS and a new phone.

 

Track pad was removed since it broke too much

 

You can use this as a USB drive with out installing Link

 

There are more features coming but for a new platform it is doing much better than others on their first start.

Re: Why I'm giving up my Q10 to go back to the Bold 9900

I just received the q10 today and I am frustrated to no end with the functionality of these units. I too wanted the keyboard but miss the trackball and the functionality of the Bold. Simple things like ring tones, alarms, ability to pick the functionality of the buttons, screen saver timeouts, poor instructions to start. What a disappointment Blackberry!

Re: Why I'm giving up my Q10 to go back to the Bold 9900

Hi augusts, very interesting observation. It is probably due to what AndyZed has reported earlier re the BIS. This mysterious feature is not made clear in the marketing brochure.
But, where to find more information about this BIS?
I am suspicious of their tariffs, so even with my 9900, I switch it on only when absolutely necessary and off when traveling abroad.

Re: Why I'm giving up my Q10 to go back to the Bold 9900

BIS is an e-mail option which, at least with Telekom (T-Mobile) among other advantages, provides a push service, which does not have any data volume restrictions. The monthly cost in Europe is about $6; well invested. OS10 does not foresee BIS, which in turn means that e-mail data volume (especially attachments and pictures etc.) burdon the contracted data packages extremely and of course the cost when in roaming.

Re: Why I'm giving up my Q10 to go back to the Bold 9900

Vodafone UK offers a BIS email package at about £4.5/month in addition to the monthly subscription for the BB9900. Checking with them this morning, they said that it is not offered for the Q10  because email is covered by both the monthly subcription and the data allowance for communication in the UK only.

Communication abroad is chargeable on top but by taking an additional package at £3 /day the UK subcription would be extended abroad.

However none of this includes secure communication: Q10 Balance would run only if we acquire BES  ( £ £ £ ) . . . and this is another story . . .

Re: Why I'm giving up my Q10 to go back to the Bold 9900

Please note that BIS is a completely different platform. It's a push service with which OS 10 is incompatible. E-Mail setup whether POP or IMAP is now done exactly the same way as in iOS and Android. MS-Echange has no major differences. I don't want to get into that much detail. Some of the major advantages of BIS in my opinion:

1. Better security
2. Managing of individual signatures
3. Allocation of individual bcc for different e-mail accounts
4. Possibility to enter alternate e-mail reply addresses
5. Clear cost advantages in connection with no data volune resulting in throttling of transfer rates

That's the reason the Q10 has been discarded and why I will be using my 9900 to the bitter end!

Re: Why I'm giving up my Q10 to go back to the Bold 9900

What's new Isaac? My Q10 does connect, but the settings for synchronization are not clickable. BlackBerry link is just not working properly and is.much to complicated in comparison to the desktop manager.
