    Your point? This thread is for feature requests. The likelihood of them happening is pretty irrelevant.

    A better photo/image management. Nice that I can hide photos now, but how about hiding the whole album so I don't have to select all of the individual files. Also, since BlackBerry is supposed to be all about security, how fixing it so when an image is marked for HIDE, it is hidden from ALL Apps, not just the photo app.

    Would like to be able to arrange photos by date, name, or size. Currently the photo app appears to sort by date, descending. But when looking at photos from say BBM when wanting to attach, they are sorted by date, ascending.

    Another one: FIX WFC FOR TMO.

    The WiFi calling is much better in 10.3.2, but it still will not auto recover if it drops. That is, I walk out of range of my WiFi the WFC connection drops. When I walk back into range it does not always come back on. At times when I am in range with a good signal it will drop out and not come back. I have turn off WiFi then turn it back on again.

    * The ability to downgrade back to 10.2.1
    My reasons:

    The hub used to look much better on my Q back on 10.2. I don't think they optimized the hun for the Q series when they were cooking up 10.3

    My WiFi was perfect then, all these 10.3.2 updates have made huge improvements. However, it isn't the same.

    The general look and feel of OS 10.2.1 was classy.

    The chances of all these features to be seen in bb10.3.3 or even 10.4(if so ever) is highly unlikely...BlackBerry has already made the point clear that there will be only security and privacy enhancements

    This may sound weird, but I'd like BlackBerry to outsource a part of the development, thus to get some external programmers on board who will develop parts of the OS.
    Why? Well in android scene there is a plenty of people who develop tons of various Roms for the community. This results in a continuous development of the android OS, additions of things that the community wants and implementation of all the ideas that seem good enough.
    As BlackBerry has a closed system, there is likely no chance whatsoever that this will happen, but letting the community do things, such as android runtime upgrade to 4.4, 5 or even 6, and modifying some other apps such as the hub to become dark may help push the OS even if BlackBerry clearly gave up on the introduction of new features.
    When looking on android, all these things are there for free, made by people who like to do these things. BlackBerry just would need to prove the modified apps the way they do with the BlackBerry world apps anyway.
    As said, not that anything like that would ever happen, but it would allow for many of the good ideas become implemented...

    HAHAHA!! Yeah, right, an forget about security? Android is an unsecured POS OS because of the open source development. You want a secure platform, you have to keep it in house under lock and key.

    I love BB10, but BlackBerry missed the boat. More work is needed in marketing and developing consumer apps, not just corporate apps.

    If open source is not secure, then how come BSD is among the most secure server OS's despite being open source? Android is insecure, but that's not because of open source.

    I'd vote for changes. The good way would be bringing in gecko compatibility, like Firefox OS Runtime. Why?
    1. We have old browser. Old, niche, and even probably unsecure. Browsers are widespread and hacked constantly nowadays, so giving in for the other browser is cutting costs on supporting BB10 OS.
    2. Gecko comes with apps, html5 apps that actually can be used anywhere, on any platform. Chen dropped a line on app incompatibility and this can be a cure. We definitely can't state that blackberry apps should be adopted everywhere, but we can support open standart.

    Get virtual machine OS simulators on BlackBerry devices for old BBOS versions, for different iPhone/Android/Windows versions, & for Knox/Tizen/Android-for-Work. (That could cause a frenzy of marketing & seminars--LOL!)
    Showcase a BlackBerry remotely controlling a device of a different OS.
    Supply covert cameras for surveillance by BlackBerry devices.
    Show the same presentation/video/song on devices of users who temporarily opt in within BBM.
    Give BlackBerry devices capabilities/accessories as tech tools that diagnose computers (POST readers, alternate boot devices with DTEK scanning), automobiles (onboard diagnostics (OBD)), network equipment (switches, routers, servers).
    Reanimate/reactivate the BlackBerry PlayBook as an external keyboard for BlackBerry devices with crossover capability for the others & apply the previous sentence to it also.
    Add a full/root website URL attachment feature to the share feature.
    Supply a Duh! overlay stamp that we can apply to BBM posts!
