    That is something i did't anticipate when i bought STL100-2 !! we need an alternative to update our phones because we wont get it from du or etisalat until they start selling 100-2
    The only solution is to get a UK Sim and stick that in whenever there's an update. Vodafone preferably.

    stuck a du sim in, found the update but is apparently stuck at 0% downloading 130mb file for quite some time. Sigh.....guess ill keep it like this and just leave it for a hour and see if any progress.

    Any news from Etisalat?
    Unfortunately, no one in my family has Du so I can't do the sim card switch trick

    Actually, you just need to boot up the phone with the Du sim once and seaexh for updates. Once the z10 says a new update is found you can just pull the battery and remove the sim. the phone will still find the update without any sim and will proceed to update! So this means you just have to borrow anybody Du sim for about 5 mins and not for the whole process.
    Time to randomly ask Co workers for their sim (just don't put in Etisalat sim before you completed the update)

    I gave up waiting for Etisalat and just used the DU sim card method-updating as we speak. Might as well do it people, just grab someone with a Du simcard and update.

    How are you guys enjoying the update? It seems my phone has initially gotten worse battery than before the update, but I'm gonna test it for a few more days to observe it more closely.

    Hi!

    Confirmed the unlimited local and global fair use policy FOR LOCAL USAGE with Etisalat:

    4GB after that they throttle your speed down to GPRS speeds no matter if you are on 3G or 4G. Much better solution that just amassing extra costs. I think.

    There you have it. All clarified.

    That's your generous allowance for roaming. Outside the UAE 20MB per month, then extra charge, inside 4GB at high speed then slowmo....no extra charge.
    Will edit the post above.

    Hi...I just wanna check with you all. Ok BBM Voice is apparently not working in UAE but I found out when I go to my contacts and then swipe to the left to see which accounts there is an account for BBM video....and I have some friends listed there....I did not tried a video chat yet but curious why it's there if it should not be when blocked....

    I see. I guess if you're a frequent traveler but don't want to juggle a handful of local SIM cards then du is the better option, which allows you to use 1GB allowance in or out of the UAE.

    Maik, I was able to make it work once actually (it was a flux perhaps), when I tried calling a friend based in NY. I think all that contacts function does is find out which of your friends are using a BBM version high enough to support the BBM Voice function at least. There are some very rare times when you could actually see the availability of your BBM Video contacts so you know which of them are online (connected to WiFi if they're BBM7 which requires it, or if they have set the option to allow BBM Voice/Video calls via the data connection on BB OS 10).

    I got my update 10.0.10.82 yesterday from du. Battery life does not seem to have improved
    Prior to the update i was able to get through 8 hrs with moderate usage. Today i could for 9 hrs.

    I will though continue to observe in the hope that i can get atleast 14-15 hrs out of it

    Made my update yesterday. Unplugged from power cord today 7am, it's now 11:40pm - 16.5 hours later. Battery is now on 8%.
    Had over the day:
    Moderate use, 3G always on, made a video and 5 or 6 photos with flash.
    I would say: MASSIVE IMPROVEMENT.

    This happened to some other people with z10 from other places, no idea why it does the double update with what appears to be a full reload of the OS with 700 +megs for the second update..
