Z10: Smartphone or...

[ Edited ]

Hi BlackBerry

Yes! I can call a contact from the hub with who I am having a BBM chat!

I just have to:
1. tap the contact in the default Hub list
2. tap his avatar a the top of the screen
3. tap "Open in Contacts"on the bottom of the screen
4. tap a phone#

After the call I want to go back to the default Hub list, so I just have to:
1. swipe from bottom to top of the screen to close the phone app
2. swipe from left to right to go to the hub
3. tap the "back"-button to close the contact-info from the Contacts app
4. tap the "back"-button to close the BBM contact-info
5. then the keyboard shows up, so hold down the space-button for  2 sec or swipe down with 2 fingers
6. tap the "back"-button to close the BBM chat.

1. "fluid"swipe

2. left to right swipe from back-button


..... Come on Blackberry, am I missing something? This is not smart, this is dumb! This is retro! It reminds me of the Nokia E61 that I owned for a week, 6 years ago!!
That's not so bad

But still:

-Making a phone call from a whatsapp-chat or from a Facebook notification in the hub is not possible.
-When I receive a Text Message from Voicemail (because I missed a call), the phone icon is available (hub list, hold down message, menu shows @ the right). Great! But when I want to use it I get "Error system failure"... pffff

I hope in 10.1 there will be a phone icon in the right menu for every chat..... ....that works!!

Re: Z10: Smartphone or...

Your adding a couple of unnecessary swipes

That should one "fluid" swipe UP and RIGHT, one motion.

Re: Z10: Smartphone or...


1. I forgot about the fluid.

2. If I do a left-to-right-swipe starting from the back-button, I go directly to the hub-list. I just got that tip from Metthew Geyling @Crackberry
