    Rite...it was him single-handedly that delayed it.

    Pay no attention to Verizon pushing the pulling updates for very small issues leaving their customer base to rot on 10.0.9.x.

    It was the carriers.

    BlackBerry makes up around 1% of the American carriers unit sales. BlackBerry is simply not going to get more attention unless it can create more consumer demand.

    FYI, I bought Bell Canadian's SIM card for $2 bucks with the hope I can get the 10.1 MR update earlier - NO LUCK HERE. Probably because mine is -5 model from T-Mobile and although unlocked it did not work.

    No it should still work.

    Make sure you are connected to Wifi and turn mobile network off after booting up with non-native SIM in

    "American carriers are not forth coming, not interested, and not following our marketing plans we set out for them to follow " "we as a company can advertise only so much. But unfortunately it does fall on the carrier to push the product. "
    Again, who cares the most if BB doesn't sell well in US?

    Now for you lovely patient Americans, this unfortunately did not mean you, we were speaking specifically about the great white north, Canada.

    And here lies part of the problem; You cannot just release a product, (especially in the case of BlackBerry given the performance over the last 4 years.) and expect the carriers to do all of the leg work for you.

    You yourself have to teach the bird to fly. Once it does and units are moving off of the shelves, you can bet they would be more than happy to advertise that 'they' offer this wonderful product.

    Blackberry did all the ads, but the carriers kept all the models in the back room NOT on the display infront and beside the other phones.Staff didn't have any knowledge or any assentive to push blackberry, maybe if a customer came in and asked a question they didn't know, so why look stupid.

    The update is Carrier pushed.

    Posted via CB10
    That's right, that would be the reason for ordering the Canadian sim in the first place duh! The update is over WiFi from BlackBerry servers. The servers just identify what sim and what model phone you have and then you download. That is why Indian Z10 owners are able to update using a UK sim despite being thousands of miles away.

    Once again, been hearing from more employees that we should expect 10.2 (in Canada) by the third week of the fall.

    That said, take into account the lovely craziness with BBM for Android and we can expect a possible delay even if they had announced an official date.

    Staying positive.

    We won't see 10.2 released until well after the launch of the BlackBerry Z30. November seems probable.

    At the last earnings call Thor said that BlackBerry was going to have to spend money in the coming months. I have not really seen it. There is no more Z10 TV advertising that I have seen. I see the same mediocre Q10 as every once in a while. There is some radio advertising that doesn't stand out.

    To me, this suggests that BlackBerry has already written off these models. Let's hope we see a memorable z30 campaign. It would make sense. 10.2 on the z30 will (hopefully) get good reviews.

    I don't know where you live (I'm assuming USA) but in Canada they are still promoting the Z10 strong...both Rogers and Telus, in fact Telus is hitting the air waves with many many commercials of the Z10. It looks as though the Q10 is off the radar now.

    I don't think they ever planned to market the Q10. They planned on attracting new customers with Z10 and spent money on advertising. They assumed bold users would upgrade to Q10.
