    Yes and Yes. I just checked on 10.2.0 maps they both work fine into street level detail.

    Awesome!

    Looking forward to using my BlackBerry in both those places.

    Can those who live in these respective cities please recommend a cellphone provider with a data plan?

    I'll be in HK and the Philippines for a week each.

    I know Globe in the Philippines is best. What she cost for a week with data?

    How about HK? Any recommendations for a provider?

    What? Globe is the best? Smart is the best service provider here in the Philippines. Widest and fastest data coverage. Globe has a 1gb data cap per day and 3gb per month even if you're in unlimited data plan. Smart doesn't have this kind of policy.

    both Smart and Globe cost 1000php unlimited data per month.


    Though stl-2 device won't have LTE connection in Smart. Not sure about other models.

    It would be on Settings then About.

    I'm not familiar with the frequency of Z30 models. But it is a good practice to research what radio frequency your phone works into and what radio frequency your chosen service provider uses.

    For example, here in the Philippines Stl-02 is the best model because all of the service provider works in the under same radio frequency as stl-02 model.

    Does that mean I'll have issues in Asia?

    I'm not sure because I don't know what are the frequencies Z30 models use (I don't have one). I'll try to look it up.

    It seems you can't have LTE in the Philippines if you're using STA-05. LTE frequency here is in 1800mhz.

    And on Globe your highest data will be 3G.
    On Smart your highest will be HSPA+. I'll say go with Smart.

    You should do this kind of research too for Hong Kong but I believe they are using the same frequencies.
