    wtf is wrong with you? relax. Skype isn't out yet, it's coming soon. Not sure about how you would get BBM if your carrier blocked it.

    My BlackBerry contact says that simply changing the DNS settings wont help(like it did with the BETA versions) since it depends on the way the backend servers are configured

    This is a carrier issue, I doubt you'll be able to "circumvent" this block somehow, they control the pipeline....

    I feel for you though, if you have enough data on your plan to cover the usage and increased data it'll pull, I'm not sure why they'd go out of their way to prevent this feature

    The UAE doesnt really have a taxation system as such, revenues from the Telco's are a big source of revenue(both carriers are owned by the government if im not wrong?)
    They do still offer unlimited data blackberry plans which they claim will work on the Z10's...
    Really need a solution for this ASAP! They began selling devices today..

    I think you have to stick with an OS7 device if you want to continue having 'open' access......

    But that doesn't really help if you want a z10, which the diehards obviously do. Honestly, this isn't the greatest situation for our middle east friends. I would suggest you start voicing your frustrations to the carriers in your region, if enough people complain maybe they will change their policy....

    What's a BBMV anyways? At first, I thought you mistyped it in the title, but now I'm not so sure. You keep writing "BBMV."

    BBM Voice. It was added recently to OS5 and above. Up until BB10, it's only been available over wifi, but it seems that the OP is saying that their local carriers are not allowing it at all for some reason.

    It worked on the Beta version of BBM with a little bit of tweaking the wifi settings if required... dont know if the same can be done on z10's?
    eventually they will have to allow it, question is when could be months/years maybe even days..
    hence, a solution is required.
