    One of features of the BlackBerry 10 OS I have come to appreciate above most has been the native browser's capacity to resume a download if the network fails or a download session is interrupted for any reason. That feature seems to be gone on Passport....has anyone noticed or am I doing something wrong?

    i am able to download very large files from the same site and servers on my Z3 and resume the downloads if interrupted but on my passport, the download always restarts from the beginning

    It depends on the server

    i don't believe the server is the issue...all BB10 devices i have used since Z10 have had the feature irrespective of site or server

    when a download is interrupted, whenever i go back to the download page, the download resumes from where it stopped. that has not been the issue on the passport

    It does depend on the servers configuration. Some work for resuming, and unfortunately, many do not.

    All of them may have shown on your Z10, but not all sites would actually let you properly resume. I noticed that a lot, especially with large files because it would restart the download and that just plain sucks.

    It's the same on the Passport as it was on the Z10, you may just be noticing differences between 10.2.1 and 10.3

    Between March 2013 and now I have used a Z10,Z30 and two Z3s...going through many iterations of the OS from 10.0 to 10.2.1 and browsing many sites. They all resumed stalled downloads

    So I'm not sure I can accept putting the blame of this on site servers or mobile networks

    It's either something broken or missing in 10.3 or something wrong with the passport

    My Passport can still do it and I'm running the normal bleak official 10.3 OS for it..

    Wanna send me a link to an example file you can't resume?
