When you sync a Z10 with your laptop using BB Link, do you have to tell it (BB Link or the phone) what content to put on the microSD card or will it do that automatically ? If it does it automatically, does it try to fill the internal storage first and then put the remaining content on the microSD or does it store certain types of content (e.g. media) on the microSD and other types of content (e.g. apps, contacts, e-mails, etc.) on the internal storage ?
Thanks a lot for answering our questions. It really helps.

Re: BlackBerry Z10 - We got one, ask us anything!
Can you use it for your daily activities such as looking for a review on a restaurant, using cloud storage, and checking your bank account? Are any apps available?

Of course that is not the case in the USA - Verizon for example won't even activate a data-capable device (even low-end non-smartphone internet-capable devices) on their network without some sort of higher-priced data plan, even if you tell them you will never use data.

I have heard that SIRI is prohibited at some companies (ie IBM) because it entails shipping voice queries to some unknown place where apparently sometimes some technology (ie neural network) or even some humans are used to interpret the queries before providing an answer, and some queries might be stored somewhere. IBM's company policy prohibits any component of company business being sent to unknown offsite/offshore vendors, so they prohibit SIRI.

It would make sense to me that a device that was constrained to the limited capabilities of the on-board OS might not be able to process complex queries, only straightforward commands and dictation.
BTW: Some guy in Austria did a side-by-side comparison with Siri, including a video. Link is below, but bear in mind this appears to have been a slightly pre-release Z10:

Can you send a file using bluetooth on iPhone, no you don't. Bluetooth feature is very limited in iPhone, many features are limited in iPhone. I recently tried to send apk data using Android, it couldn't because it didn't offer that. But I could send using Z10. Blackberry comes with more features out of box. Who offers picture editing out of box, none. Third party apps do that for them.

I am before BB Z10 buying and
I've som question:
1. What kind of sim card the Z10 use micro os simply SIM?
2. The 16 GB is enough? I usually use 50-60 apps and the same in games in my WP8. The problem in the WP8, that the apps and the games make a lot of trash and thats way the storage is not enough. What about here?
3. If I sync my outlook, my google and my facebook all the details will be a part of the Phonebook?
4. What about the battery life? The full charge is enough for one day?

I would like to know some things about the Blackberry z10
1 - The fabric is more or less bright than the galaxy S3?
2 - Quality of call is good?
3 - Quality and volume of the sound in relation to S3?
4 - Wi-Fi signal is at a distance greater than the Galaxy S3?
5 - Select the text and copy / paste is as good as the iPhone?
5 - The browser has shortcuts or bookmarks on the home screen when you open a new tab (as chromium and dolphins)?
7 - fixed GPS satellites quickly and has good accuracy?
8 - They believe the BlackBerry will update the software to add some functions like: Adjust volume for the expensive program, alarm can be programmed with different schedules, pop up notifications (text or email)?

I have taken delivery of Z10 in the UK and first impressions find it requires some dedicated work to scroll around the "guts" of the mobile. To me it does has been previously released on Crackberry. However a couple of queries:
1. How are phone numbers in the Contracts section deleted?
2. How are downloaded apps not required deleted ?
Thanks for your assistance.

Thanks to the OP and others for contributing to this Q & A. I'd REALLY appreciate it if a Z10 owner could address the following:
Question: Can the Z10 stream from sites like FirstRow Live Football Stream | Watch Live Football Online | Live Soccer Stream and Project Free TV ?

Loaded the Romanian match.
It works, streams the flash vids fine.
Problem is, the pop up ads that you have to hit the small x to close won't close so you have to wait for them to disappear.
On a separate note, the biggest disappointment for me so far is the text selection. It's awful.
Dragging those little blue things around is really really hard. It takes ages and is frustrating.
This is not only miles worse than the 9900 and trackpad solution, its worse than Android to me as well.

I just tried. Nope. but you can drag the focus and zoom instead! I wish that BBRY will look at HTC's great camera UI for improvements. Dedicated shutter on screen + rec button world be great.
BlackBerry Z10 Specs - Specifications for BlackBerry 10 Smartphone - Canada I am gonna test a MKV container, the codec should work.
Thanks. But man did you read most of the thread? Text selection + editing + copy has room for improvement. That's what i was talking about.
It is not 'very easy to do', usually, as you trying to correct within a small text box in BBM or SMS.
I am the OP, my Z10 is awesome, but I thought this would have been implemented better. The PB's method is a bit slow but less fiddley than BB10 for now...

I would guess that touchscreen copy/cut/paste has to be a monumentally challenging task on anyone's very small screen. The Playbook has the advantage of a much bigger screen to squint-at and touch with fat fingers than the 4-inch Z10 screen. (or the Q10's screen, ffs)
If I had to try to munge my mitts all over my old 3-inch Treo screen every time I needed to correct a typo, I would surely have ended up throwing it hard at something. Even with the lowly 320x320 resolution it has. But what saved it was a dedicated keyboard, five-way navigator button and a stylus.
