    BlackBerry’s update process in the first year of BlackBerry 10 wasn’t fantastic for its U.S. customers. Aside from some specific Z10 owners that are on Verizon, the U.S. BB10 consumer base has been stuck with 10.1 officially up until this point. You can mainly blame American wireless carriers for that, but obviously, BlackBerry hasn’t been too happy with how it’s gone either.

    Tomorrow, BlackBerry 10.2.1 will officially be launched at 8am EST, and a lot of carriers will have the update available right away including one U.S. carrier, Verizon. Big Red’s Z10 will be getting 10.2.1 tomorrow morning with no limitations on number of users that have access to it, like before. If you’re on AT&T, T-Mobile, or Sprint though, don’t worry, your update is coming a lot sooner than we expected originally.

    According to sources with knowledge of the update, BlackBerry is planning on having every major carrier in the world have a 10.2.1 update available to its customers by the end of February, with most jumping on board within the first couple of weeks. The great news for those of us in the States, is that that plan also includes the four major U.S. carriers.

    We’ve been given a few tentative dates for U.S. carrier 10.2.1 releases, but keep in mind these are subject to change. The keyword here is “tentative,” but for now, they seem pretty solid to us.

    Verizon Z10: Starting tomorrow, January 28th, 2014
    Verizon Q10: Tuesday, February 4th, 2014
    Verizon Z30: Monday, February 10th, 2014
    AT&T Z10 & Q10: Monday, February 10th, 2014
    T-Mobile Z10 & Q10: Mid-February (anywhere from Feb 10th to Feb 20th)
    Sprint Q10: End of February

    U.S. carriers apparently circumvented 10.2 all together, and were able to get their heads out of their asses for enough time to approve 10.2.1 in a timely fashion. Hopefully these updates go smoothly, and everyone can enjoy 10.2.1, and all the benefits it brings along.

    My fingers are crossed and I will be hoping to get the update on my Q10 tomorrow. The update showed up on my unlocked Z10 this week and I really want OS 10.2.1 on my Q10...

    You & me both. If nothing happens this week, I'll be crying, "Wolf! Wolf!" the next time anyone posts rumours of a new date.

    My fingers are crossed and I will be hoping to get the update on my Q10 tomorrow.

    Nothing yet on AT&T. So much for this thread being accurate. Can we find something about what is happening with the American carriers?

    I too have been anxiously awaiting the carrier update. I installed a leak on my Q10 but had been holding off on my Z10. Now it seems that the information provided was not correct. I can't even find anything on the web about it. Frustrating.

    Do you have it active on VZW? If you don't, you might not get the notification, may have to manually update.

    You mean via Link?
    When I check for update on device, it says I have the latest. I can try via Link if that will help? Did toy get yours?

    No I have it active on AT&T. That's why I thought about removing sim and trying.

    I just had what I believe was a genuinely honest conversation with a Tier-2 Technical Support Rep. at Verizon Wireless. I asked when we Q10 customers are likely to see an official OS update, and explained that there are rumours and misinformation everywhere about this. She told me that she doesn't ever have access to that kind of information, and that it's above her paygrade to even be able to contact those who do have it. She could only tell me what I already knew - that the Z10 was updated in January, and that the last update for the Q10 was last August. Basically her department finds out about update approvals at the same time the customers do, and she saw nothing on her schedule to indicate anything was being offered today.

    Since I was not permitted to talk to anyone higher up, I asked if she could please relay my customer wishes to those who are doing the testing. I also told her that the more time that passes, the less functionality I have on my phone; the latest update includes new features, including security features, which I cannot use, and more new apps are created which I cannot install. I also stressed that there are a LOT of us who have been waiting for this, and it would help if someone would contact Blackberry in an official capacity, and provide a timeline we can believe.

    She agreed to pass my information along, and apologised for not being able to give me further information. It was a very civil and cordial conversation, and I felt she was being honest when she said she doesn't see the updates being rolled out until they have been announced to everyone.

    (Apologies for cross-posting, but there are so many threads about this, that I thought to reach as many VZW customers as possible.)

    The crazy thing is I never received 10.2 so I doubt 10.2.1 coming
