    Long time reader, 1st time poster (obviously). My new z10 was shipped today!!! I literally can not wait any longer! My productivity at work has dropped 50% in the last few days reading everything I can about the z10. Have owned nothing but blackberries for last 10 years. Hoping you guys could post a few of the less obvious tips/tricks for BB10. Thanks!

    Too late

    The reason for the horrendous battery life on Z10 isn't the hardware... it's the users won't let them breathe

    Agree. Someone needs to take pliers to mine because it's been almost a month and I still can't stop. The lack of sleep is still too dang high!

    Try the turning off swipe gestures on the unlock screen. Mine stopped getting hot after I did that and the battery is better.

    Isn't Sprocket feeling a life jealous now that you're spending too much time with your beloved Z10? =)

    Def turn off gestures to unlock. Did wonders for my battery.

    Some tricks:
    Two fingers from the bottom up shows keyboard anytime, also drops keyboard
    Five swipes from top right in hub resets the hub
    Do not use Facebook app. ... Go to m.facebook.com and hold your finger on the screen and select "add to homescreen"
    To copy/paste, hold your finger on the word and select copy
    In the hub the back button is always behind the keyboard
    Within an app, swiping down from top brings up options and back button

    Those are some tricks for now (ones I had to show my gf)

    [QUOTE=ciabo;8309168]Why don't you use the fb app?

    The facebook app is good only for the integration of the hub and doesn't offer any features, its just a dumbed down version of m.facebook.com. Try it yourself and see the difference. Just remember to save it like an app to the homescreen by pressing the 3 dots on the bottom right and "add to homescreen"
