Hello from Bulgaria,
My mobile service provider hasn't promoted the BB z10, yet.
So, it is not officially on the Bulgarian market.
I bought my BB z10 from Dubai and it will switch on but will not operate at all- neither the BB function, nor the VOICE function.
The Bulgarian mobile service provider's response to my problem is that "BB z10 is not officially promoted in bulgaria, yet and that's the reason it doesn't work in Bulgaria".
I'm not technical, so please help - ...do you think the answer I am given is valid or is my device rather damaged?
It is not coded for sure.

Hi and Welcome to the Community!
Two possibilities I can think of...
1) You bought a Z10 that is not compatible with the radio frequencies used by your carrier:
2) Your Z10 is locked to it's original carrier. You check that here:
At the bottom of the screen will be a section titled "Phone Network Lock"...if any of them say anything other than "Unlocked", you need to obtain an unlock code and unlock your BB so as to use it on your carrier.
If both of those issues are resolved, then your Z10 should at least work for voice, and should also work for data as long as you have a "generic" data plan on the account...if you have BIS on the account, that may impede data services.
