I'm trying to update my Z10 operating system without succes.
Location: The netherlands
My BB version: STL100-2
OS Version: 10.0.9.2372.
I didn't insert my SIM card and launched the blackberry link.
it tells me i have an update. I click on install and i goes to install the software - reboot my device
when it's fully rebooted it tells me that i still have the old version of the OS. I've tried this already 3 times nothing works.
I hope i'm not the only one with this problem. I've uninstalled link and installed it back without succes.
Thanks in advanced

You are actually on the latest version. What is happening is that you are either (a) deleting carrier pushed apps or (b) deleting OS integrated Blackberry apps. The OS recognises this and pushes the apps back to you. It is a bit frustrating, but the quick workaround is to create a folder (such as "USELESS CRUD", which is what mine is called!) and move all of those programs that you don't want into that folder. Then bury that folder on the last pane of your home pages.

The updates are (unfortuately) controlled by the carrier's at this time. They do some testing and determine when to release them.. so your carrier may not have released the update yet. The only way around that is if you have an unlocked z10 and can either borrow or buy a SIM card from a carrier that has pushed the updates you can get around it. Make sure that you have WiFi running or install it from your computer or you may incurr data charges on that SIM.

It appears that WhatsApp is now available for devices on a lower OS, such as OS 10.0.9.2743.
The WhatsApp description still states only for devices of OS 10.0.10.82 and higher, but I have confirmed on mine it has installed and is working.
