    oh look, you came immediately back to comment again. Huzzah. The inability to set notifications at a granular level will **** nearly all BB power users off. Perhaps you aren't a power user?

    GIVE THIS MAN A PRIZE! That's exactly it. A vast majority of BB users are going to be pretty annoyed at stuff that has changed, esp the Notifications/Alerts. On the other hand, they will be blown away by the browser!

    today the phone has stopped ringing (seriously.. about to update the OP list) so it's looking a bit more likely :-( - I must admit BBM in Landscape via the Hub method had me a lot happier

BB10 is new, its isnt BB7, its doesnt have to have every feature of BB7....get over it or go get another device, we all have that choice.
    this is nonsense. Absolute horse****. And yes, you **** me off with your posting style. What made BB great (any device)? Collective things that 90%+ users LOVE - delete device vs device & server, push email, customisable notifications by alert type - including volume (remember "Level 1"???). I'm really sorry - either you're not a power user, or you're a fan boy who refused to accept these mistakes by RIM. Or both. And... you've posted again!

    I must say the call volume and the speaker (which was also slammed in some reviews) is excellent!

    what surprises me is how the RIM employees who have been using this thing, and iterations of it, for more than a YEAR, didn't mention things like the notifications or the very slow portrait/landscape switching

It meets all my use cases except for bridge (which we may see updates for yet who knows). If I want to bother picking over the feature list of BB7 and everything I have used at one point or another I will find things I cant do, however thats just plain dumb. Its like having a windows pc, then going out and buying a mac and then ******** it cant do x. its a new system.

It is another evolution. They don't suddenly forget everything cool they have ever done before hence why things like BBM get included again

    So the phone does not meet YOUR "design choices", pity.

    I read this whole thread,good god what punishment I hand myself at times,lol.

    Anyway, of your 35 issues I see at most 5 that are worthy of an update perhaps, the rest seem personal choice, user error or rash conclusions without digging deeper.

    I'm all for these type of threads to flush out issues worthy of updates etc but your forum name and frankly attitude leave a lot to be desired in my opinion. Most approach updates/fixes in a calm rational manner, without undertones that deride from the concept of updates.

    Seems your approach is more about SCREAMING like a wounded animal , with the pretence asserted on your part that this is a needed approach to get updates quicker, newsflash. .... when my child screams for a want/item in public I don't follow through.

    Myself I will look to other threads for update idea's, fixes etc , sort of the approach Kevin took in calm rational manner.

    quit with the "new" already! when I make a "new" car I still include really obvious things like the wheels. Leaving out customisable notifications (for a BB power user who has used BB for years) is akin to leaving the 4th wheel off your new car!

They came along gradually in many updates. Imagine BB10 in it's seventh iteration. Yes, there are bugs right now. Yes, there are shortcomings. Which first generation OS didn't have those? The first iphone couldn't even send picture messages when my tiny flip phone could do that for years before! I have full faith this OS will mature quite nicely over the years.
    it will get better I'm sure. I'm not sure how long it will take. I don't know if RIM have time on their hands either. And that's the worst thing really - my main option at the moment looks to be a 9900, but then I go back to a (fairly awful) browser and camera

    I wouldn't think it would be "all things" to all users.....YET. It is a bit of a drag that BlackBerry is basically starting over in 2013, but that is a fact. The time it'll take to get "on par" with Android and iOS will be minimal.
    leaving out some obvious stuff that has made BB great over the years is a big of a crazy decision. The only crazier decision that the "one notification to rule them all" one would be to have dropped BBM

I don't have a problem with you voicing your opinions at all. However I do take issue with the ones where you say 'you will want...'. Please don't presume to know what I like to have on my phone. For example - I couldn't care less if bbm opens in landscape. I much prefer to type in portrait. Some of your other issues are similar - they are issues for some people and not for others. Some of them are design choices and you will find these with any OS. Out of your list there were 3 points that I personally would like to see addressed by BlackBerry. And I have confidence that they will be. Only you can decide what are 'dealbreakers' for you, but it does sound like, with so many things bothering you about the Z10, you would be better off to send it back and go with a phone that more meets your needs.
    uh, a BB 9780 (or 9900)??!?!

    Except that it is. At most, it shares the kernel and a few minor features with BlackBerry Tablet OS. Everything else had to be rewritten in Cascades, because the PlayBook used Adobe AIR (which was rubbish). And when you have to rewrite everything from scratch, it becomes difficult to concentrate on the details. They'll need an update or two to really polish the details, and I'm sure they're already hard at work on the next update. I'd expect at least one update before the US launch. But at this point in time, it is what it is - there are features missing from BlackBerry 10 that I have on my 9810 which I'm going to miss as well. But the Z10 still serves me better than any other phone available today, and I'm confident BlackBerry is going to improve things significantly in upcoming updates.

    Jesse,

    I am really impressed by the OP's post, the input from other CB members, and the OP's subsequent edits of the original post. I have found this post very informative (fyi, I'm waiting until I can compare the Z10 & X10 before I purchase - I'm also waiting to see if the functionality released suits my needs - this post has certainly helped to inform me about the current functionality of the Z10)

    However, I find that your post is the opposite of impressive, as your post seems to be aimed at suppressing the dissemination of honest information about the Z10.

    To the OP, I get there is issues with a new platform and sure BB has taken a few steps back in certain respects and sure they need to be corrected. But this is the released version and the real issue here is what BB does with the feedback esp. before the US launch. Your approach here is to "through the baby out with the bath water" if you get my saying.. I think all is fixable by software and certainly do-able in an upcoming release. If things are broken, I'm confident that BB will fix them. This phone launch is way more important to the company than the playbook and BB needs to focus on the glaring OS issues. I guess from my perspective it's how we as consumers use this to help "construct" BB10 not "destruct" it. I think the platform is strong and extremely flexible to correct any of these issues. I notice that your original post has all to do with issues and many of them.. but there are positives about the device .. are they not?
    It would be great if someone perhaps from Crackberry or from Blackberry (heck, BB should put a paid member on this site to collect all this valuable feedback to make their OS the best of the best) that can summarize these issues and take a poll for each of them - majority rules; note that... what may be an issue for you, may not be an issue for others.. and visa versa.
    This brand has a lot of potential and I personally believe more than the other brands in the market. All the issues you noted is fixable in this new OS .. it just needs to get properly funneled back to BB.

    PS: I don't think the OP is a troll, he (as we all do) want the best product we can get our hands on. A phone is an expensive committment for most of us...

    Maybe that is the reason why BBRY did not release in the US as they want to polish everything up before it hits the streets. Anything that is redesigned will have bugs like going from Win 3.1 to Win95 or OS 9 to OS X. Big changes = problems but they should get addressed. Look at how many iOS releases there are and Apple still cannot get autocorrect to work properly let alone true multitasking which I always enjoyed on my BB and even on my android tablet and my pb. Heck even webOS has better multitasking that iPad.

    Their last chance isn't one day long. They have less room for error but their last chance is the software. Starting again would cost too much and take too long. They can still work on what was released.

    I get what you are saying, but we waited a decade to be able to edit forwarded emails, for example (because most BB fan boys defended the madness with claims that FORWARD meant CARBON COPY CANNOT BE EDITED even though in the real world this isn't how people tend to use forward). I am not prepared to wait longer than a quarter for Notifications to come back. I hope this thread/blog/site get to someone at RIM who cares enough to understand why it's such a big mistake.

    Exactly. EXACTLY. It's probably one of the single most productive things about having a Blackberry. You "know" about a message, without having to do anything but listen/look for the LED!

Your approach here is to "through the baby out with the bath water" if you get my saying.. I think all is fixable by software and certainly do-able in an upcoming release. If things are broken, I'm confident that BB will fix them. This phone launch is way more important to the company than the playbook and BB needs to focus on the glaring OS issues. I guess from my perspective it's how we as consumers use this to help "construct" BB10 not "destruct" it. I think the platform is strong and extremely flexible to correct any of these issues. I notice that your original post has all to do with issues and many of them.. but there are positives about the device .. are they not?
    It would be great if someone perhaps from Crackberry or from Blackberry (heck, BB should put a paid member on this site to collect all this valuable feedback to make their OS the best of the best) that can summarize these issues and take a poll for each of them - majority rules; note that... what may be an issue for you, may not be an issue for others.. and visa versa.
    This brand has a lot of potential and I personally believe more than the other brands in the market. All the issues you noted is fixable in this new OS .. it just needs to get properly funneled back to BB.

    PS: I don't think the OP is a troll, he (as we all do) want the best product we can get our hands on. A phone is an expensive committment for most of us...
    Well said. I can understand the OP's frustration simply because a lot of the issues that people are complaining about are the very things that have kept users on the BB platform. So to not have them available at launch would be frustrating. However, I think a lot of these features aren't necessary for the general public or users who may be jumping back from another platform, simply because they probably didn't use them/need them to begin with. In this aspect, not having these features won't necessarily hurt RIM BB with the new users, but it could potentially hurt them with existing customers. Either way, as Lynxs-claw puts it, all these issues should be easily fixable with updates, hopefully sooner than later. When being an "early adopter" so to speak, one must realize that there will be some growing pains along with it.

    but seriously, I can get a new 9900 from the carrier and they usually compensate too e.g. a 5 ($7) monthly adjustment, to make up for it

    yep, and not just ringtones. On the 9780 I used various combinations of:

    Volume
    Ringtone
    Number of buzzes
    Length of each buzz
    LED colours via BeBuzz

    It was superb!

    the only change I've made with my ringtones was adding LED for bbm/sms in phone calls only.

It get's time-stamped with the time that you received the message, when you got coverage back.
    It's the same on all BB's. When I have my phone in bedside mode, when I turn everything back on and I received text or voice mail notification, it shows the time as when I turned it on.

    Thank you OP for a very productive post. Reality is that BB10 needs to be a nuisance free as possible when it hits the U.S. market if it is to be a commercial and critical success. It's enough of a leap of faith that people have to learn a completely new way of interacting with a phone through gestures - having to find little work arounds for everything from multiple email selection to gmail active sync to text editing/paragraph selection is just too much to ask of the market at large.

    I'm sure the people at BlackBerry are still busting their humps, working overtime, processing feedback and putting together a comprehensive first patch before Z10 officially hits the States.
