    Hi! I'm new here at CB. Does anyone know when the official Software Update 10.2 would be released? With that new Software, would the following apps be available in Appworld? -- Viber, WeChat, Line, Instagram and Skype. I've read that Native Apps are still way better than sideloaded apps. I currently have 10.0.10.82 here in Manila. Version 10.1 is already available for downloading but I plan to wait for 10.2 coz of all the negative reviews I've read about 10.1. I just want to know how long I have to wait for 10.2 to be released.

    If your carrier is offering 10.1, go ahead and get that. 10.2 probably won't be available until later this year or probably next year. I'm on a leaked version and it runs much smoother than 10.0.

    The main complaint with 10.1 is the lack of availability with US carriers.

    I agree. I had a hybrid 10.1 and that one worked better than 10.0. Now I am on a 10.2 hybrid and runs smooth also. As he said above, upgrade to your carrier's 10.1 instead of waiting for 10.2.

    10.1 is fine, so go for the update. Better battery life, updated apps, more stable. And Skype is available with 10.1, so need to wait for 10.2 for that.

    You have surely got some wrong feedback. I dont think the 10.1 is bad in any way when compared to the 10.0.10.x. The 10.1 adds a lot of improvement to the device. The app Skype is already available in the appworld for the users wjo have downloaded 10.1. Viber has made a statement that they will be releasing their native app along with 10.2. The others have not made any statement and we will have to continue using the sideloaded apps until then.
    The 10.1 is a huge improvement over 10.0 and it is definitely recommended that you install that. A an additional 10.1 MR update will be coming in around a months time that will bring more improvements. A good release of 10.2 will not be coming for another 2 to 3 months.

    10.1 is fine for me. Hadn't had a major issue with it since I bought the phone and immediately updated the software.

    Appreciate your swift responses very much! <3 Thank you guys!! Sooo happy I discovered CB hahaha! This is where I got to read negative feedbacks about the Software Update 10.1 (It's 10.1.0.273 to be more specific ) Blackberry Z10 Software update 10.1.0.273 - BlackBerry Support Community Forums I actually don't encounter any problem with 10.0 but it would be nice if I get to use skype... And eventually Viber and other Android apps when 10.2 comes out I will update to 10.1 tonight as you all have advised! By the way, does 10.1 already support Unicode for Emojis? I can't seem to recognize emojis from an Iphone 5 and vice-versa. It's kinda sad seeing those small boxes with x in the middle instead of the usual colorful smileys. Oh and last question... Is there an option in the 10.1 update to change the font? Thanks again guys!!

    Support for emojis has already been announced by BlackBerry in the 10.2 update. So, it will come for sure.

    I am very unhappy with the leaked ver. of 10.1, it is like a downgrad: Hub management dont work, accounts switched off still show in the hub. weather app don't update when it opens, many apps are running slower and the device get heated faster.
    I really didn't find anything that worth staying with this update. I am trying to restore factory setting, but i'm not sure i will be able to do so.

    You can sideload those apps, if you are so inclined.

    Did you run a security wipe before/after installing the leak?

    Oops. To clarify, I meant the 10.2 leak, which certainly exists.

    10.2 is coming October November from what ppl been saying but knowing BlackBerry it will be January or February, by then BlackBerry might be in a world of hurt...
