5 days with Q10 and 2 questions - mute and battery
I love my q10 and it is working spectacularly well. I just have 2 questions about the device
1: How can I quickly mute the phone in meetings or movies and such? Went to the theater last night and had to dig thru settings to mute - I must be missing something obvious.
2: How can I get the battery percentage to display on the screen? the battery seems to be lasting forever but having the percentage would help me gauge it a little better.
Loving this phone!

1) to mute your phone, just hit the middle button on the side.
2) to see remaining battery life, go to setting --> About -- > select hardware (under category) and then scroll down.
HTH, I'm new to the Q10 as well and really enjoying it, but still learning.

1 : to mute , pull down the menu in the homescreen , and push on the notifications icon , this will switch to mute , or vibrate only. Depends on what you selected the first time.
2 : I use a simple battery app to watch this(battery percentage). Just keep the active frame open , or close it and open it when you would like to check percentage.
Going to the menu , hardware etc take a lot of more steps.
The middle button doesn't seem to toggle between modes, the only thing I have got that button to do is launch voice command when pressed for several seconds. When I hit mute at the lock screen, or even the home screen, I get no indication whatsoever that it is in or out of mute mode. This results in my having to pull down the quick access pane and go into notification settings to change this most basic setting - this needs to be fixed in the next sw update. Same for battery life, there needs to be an option to display it in the top bar, not just list it in a burried settings menu. These are basic things on a smartphone that you should not have to dig to get at..
running on 10.1.0.2030 att

The MIDDLE button - is for mute when you are on a call. As in - it mutes so the other person can't hear what you are rambling on about on the other end with someone else.

Tapping the BELL will toggle between Normal profile and your last selected profile (Vibrate only or Silent or Phone Calls only... whatever you had selected previously).

What posters said above and Battery Guru is really nice, it tells you %, time until empty, and some extra stuff in the active frame, (when you leave it running).Primary: BlackBerry Q10 - Black/Verizon
