    Hello all, I just bought a new Z10 off. eBay. My main question is should I, if it's even possible, do my updates to 10.2 before I go to Verizon to activate my phone? I would like to have it updated and do a wipe or whatever its called on BlackBerry before I even set it up with all my accounts. Does anyone know if it's possible to update over WiFi on an non activated phone? Thank you in advance.

    i think you can do everythig over wifi anyway, so you dont need a sim to update to the latest os. you can also do a security wipe of the phone without your sim. enjoy your new phone!

    If you phone is not activated on a Carrier Network... you are not going to get an OTA or Wi-Fi update. You can install a leak using on of the Auto Loaders and a USB connection to your computer. Or you could use Sachesi to pull an update from another carrier.


    But if it were me I'd go activate the phone as is and make sure it works before doing anything major to it.

    Did you buy a carrier phone, Verizon in this case, or an unlocked one? If a Verizon phone, it may have 10.2 already on it. Your best bet is to activate the phone, then update.

    Thank you everyone, I think I will just go to Verizon, activate it, like it has been suggested above then see what version BB10 it is running. Thanks
