    Hopefully outlook contact sync is fixed. It has been a pain dealing with the issue.

    With this coming out the same day as the Z3 announcement, I have a feeling this just updates Link to work with it. I hope I'm wrong.

    It is my humble opinion that the only way to "fix" that is to completely re-design the contacts app architecture in BB10, which appears to be fatally flawed and designed by people that did not know what they were doing. (Not to mention Link, which is rudimentary at best for such tasks. )

    to deal with your contacts the best way is to sync them with gmail account I have 200 + contacts stored on gmail and I have no issue at all I just sign in and all my contacts with their pic are in my contacts

    200 contacts is _nothing_.

    It's the people with 5000 contacts that have the real problems.

    And because contact fields are apparently not uniquely identified in BB10 nor is there any hard limit on number of fields per type, this will inevitably cause major disasters trying to sync that giant amorphous blob to Outlook...

    Thanks, I will try that. I use Outlook on my laptop for work (calendar and contacts); how do you keep both synced when using Gmail on my Z?

    I find it really annoying that these updates never show up inside BBLink for me, even though I have "automatically download updates" checked.
    I can image a lot of people are still using old, unreliable versions of Link because of this.

    Another common explanation is that they let the early adopters have it for a while in case there are uncaught flaws, before they release it as an "automatic update".

    That could hold of course, but I do not always install these updates, some of them I have waited for (never showed up). Even so, I have never seen an automatic update notice in BBLink since its release.

    I have. But as I recall, it is not right in your face, you have to click a button to be in that section of the application before you see it.

    FWIW, I tend to turn "auto update" completely OFF on anything I personally use. If I had a nickel for every device or system that was rendered at least temporarily useless by an update that was installed without my knowledge or consent...

    Lovin the new options for backup/restore. My Outlook 2007 sync finished very quickly!

    However, it still doesn't recognize the FLAC music files on my SD card.

    I am amazed that I have to Google the download link every time an update comes out. This time, my Z10 told me it wanted to install Link, so I assumed it was an update, but I still had to go to the online link to install it (the phone gave instructions that did not work on my computer).

    I don't know why you would need to do that.

    I go to www.blackberry.com and see the following, and click on the "Software" link:


    Blackberry Link Updated to 1.2.3.48 (161Mb)-blackberry_web_1.png


    Then I get a dropdown that looks like the following, and simply click on "BlackBerry Link software for BlackBerry 10 OS".


    Blackberry Link Updated to 1.2.3.48 (161Mb)-blackberry_web_2.png



    Then I see the buttons depicted below, pick the platform I want (PC or Mac), and it takes me to the download page.

    You don't see any of those things?

    Just noticed that now when you do a backup and its backing up app settings/data it actually tells you as it backs up each apps setting, shows the app name as it backs up. Don't remember seeing that before. Note it also showed the names of each of the android apps I have installed as it backed up those as well

    I have over 100 BlackBerry World apps and dozens of Android apps installed on my test device, and I saw no information as you described there at all, when doing backups (and a restore) of the device today.

    Omnitech, it's there. You do have to poke around a bit.
