    I've cracked my z10 and now the top half of the screen does not respond to touch. I've been getting by by using the bottom half, turning hte phone into landscape mode etc. to get things done.

    I want to know would it be easier to operate a z10 with a dead top half of screen on 10.2.1 than it is on 10.2.0?

    Especially useful would be things like:
    - Can settings menu be turned into landscape on 10.2.1?
    - Will I need to click anything on top half of screen during update process?
    - Wi-fi networks listing: is this landscape-supported in 10.2.1?

    It will be no easier. No easier at all.
    To answer your questions:
    1. No
    2. No
    3. No

    Just fix the screen.

    #1 - No settings do not rotate.
    #2 - Main problem would be the setup program that requires you to swipe up or down.... but I don't think you have to go through the setup if you do an OTA update, only when doing an install from an autoloader.
    #3 - Sorry but no.


    Sorry for your problems....

    Hate to say it but there is a good chance the crack will spread and render the entire screen useless to touch.... make a full backup asap if you haven't already!

    Thanks for replies. Unless you can recommend a repairer in Cambodia (lots do iPhones but none have BB parts ), screen crack is here to stay for a few more weeks.
