I have had my z10 for 2 weeks now, and I really wanted to like it, but I agree with a lot of the posts here. It has been rushed to market, with way too many unresolved issues.
Battery life of 8 hours, poor auto- rotate, poor cell signal..............the list goes on. Its an average touch screen phone.
I would love a sign that blackberry are doing something about all the issues, and a reason to keep it, but it seems that they have removed everything from the Z10 that made blackberry so good.
Its not a blackberry anymore

Thanks for that, but I do have the lastest software (updated it 2 days ago), but the battery barely lasts 9 hrs on stand by. And, man does the phone get hot!
Also, any idea where all the text alert tones etc have gone. They have provided a very basic set of notification tones and vibrate options.
Maybe I was being too optimistic, hoping for the useabiltiy of a Galaxy, but with the best of previous blackberrys (email, text etc)

If your phone is draining the battery that fast on standby, and it's getting hot on standby, then something is using excessive data.
It could be a poorly coded app that you installed, or an issue with email sync.

Possible your carrier has not updated their radio files.
AT&T sent out an update today and mine has been much better with battery life so far.

You can always try a device wipe and restore your settings. I am getting substantially more battery life after doing one.
I was getting 8-10 hours.. I am now getting 13-15 hours... and I am a heavy user, conatant bbm and email. Plus many apps running at the same time.
