Z10 - misled!

Why oh why can the new Z10 and Blackberry 10 OS not support Outlook linking and sync.

I feel completely misled when 7 was fine, and i waited for 10 before renewing my phone.

Half a mind to send it back.

And also, - no Skype, no whatsapp......again misleading on the part of Blackberry amidst all the hype of the launch

Re: Z10 - misled!

I agree on the lack of having Outlook sync... it is is missing and affects me as well.

I am exploring workarounds currently. Hopefully BlackBerry will beat me to the issue and update Link.

 

I understand Skype is coming and perhaps WhatsApp...

Re: Z10 - misled!

I have no idea when it might be. I know Companion link has a service for the syncing, but I have not used it yet.

 

I don't know why it's available on 7 not 10, but it is also not available on the PlayBook, for the past 18 months.

Re: Z10 - misled!

Skype and WhatsApp are both on its way, this was discussed at the launch event. No one was trying to mislead you there.
