    Why don't you post a picture of your Z10 so we can determine whether your phone is fake or original.

    Why do you think it's a fake ? Did you purchase it from some guy in a parking lot ?

    Dude, that scenario exists. You don't know how many times I've been offered to buy a Samsung at parking lots.

    Most obvious difference would be the OS, it would not be BB10 since only BlackBerry makes them. Just try to see if you got a Hub by swiping up from the bottom of the screen. BB10 also always have the phone icon in the bottom left corner, camera icon in the bottom right, and search at the bottom center.

    If not, you might have a fake. It would not be the first time we see this. Please post pictures of the OS so we can do determine if it is.

    No such thing as a fake BB should exists. The secure boot loader contaings digital signature to check the validity of the OS (has to be signed by BB). I don't know if the OS tries to verify the hardware too.

    You *could* theoretically create your own hardware being able to boot OS 10, but with the current price of a Z10 and the low marketshare, I really doubt it.
