    I have a Q10 and have chosen to remain on 10.2.1, for the appearance and also because a couple of voip apps dont work properly on 10.3. My question is whether there is a security implication for doing this, and if so, what is the exploit and how potentially would the device be at risk.

    You'll remain susceptible to FREAK - BlackBerry response to OpenSSL "FREAK" Vulnerability but let's be realistic here. The amount of people targeting BlackBerry 10 is pretty minimal unless you're running a country.

    Very well put, another reason to stay with BlackBerry. A waste of time for hackers to go after a small percentage of users.

    If there is even the outside chance of being vulnerable, why would carriers, in particular T-Mobile, not release the subsequent updates?
