    I was trying to ping BB Z3 from Ubuntu 14.04 , it pings successfully but in Ubuntu 15.10 it doesnot. So I decided to rescue it.

    From Ubuntu 15.10 there's interface changing based on Mac Address of Device for ref
    networking - Network interface name changes after update to 15.10 - udev changes - Ask Ubuntu
    and network-manager dhcp cant run it properly so needed to manual start for ref
    TR Forums ? View topic - Syncing music to Blackberry Z10 or Playbook on Linux

    Use commands below to connect your BB10 and Ping it successfully

    sudo nano /etc/default/grub
    change GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="net.ifnames=0 biosdevname=0"    //then BB will be named as usb0 only :P
    sudo update-grub
    sudo reboot
    sudo apt-get install cifs-utils winbind
    sudo nano /etc/nsswitch.conf
    change hosts: to files wins mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns mdns4
    sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces
    add these two lines
    auto usb0
    iface usb0 inet dhcp
    //Connect the device
    sudo systemctl start ifup@usb0.service -l
    //it should turn to active now u can ping :)
    //anytime it stop ping just run the last command
