    Hi Folks,

    I have used iPhone 5 for around 9 months now and I am pretty pleased with it. My wife was using Nexus 4 since 5 months and neither she liked nor I. I sold her Nexus 4 and placed an order on eBay of BB Z 10 yesterday and it should be delivered to me any time soon now. Now, my wife's eyeing on my iPhone 5 and has instructed me to use Z10(u know, wives rules!)

    So, I have used BlackBerry devices in the past(Blackberry Pearl, BlackBerry Curve 8520 and BlackBerry Torch 9810).. I was very much happy with these devices(except the annoying hour glass and battery pulls).. now since, i am jumping to BB 10 platform.. can someone pls answer below queries?

    1) I use "Runkeeper" on my iPhone to track my running/jogging.. any such application on BB world ? I am OK with a simple UI

    2) Can I use BES of old legacy servers on new BB Z10 ?

    3) How safe is installing and downloading Android apps on BB Z10? I have heard that after official release of 10.2.1, we can install files directly

    Anymore suggestions would be accepted with arms wide open! Ehh , reminds me of Creed song! lol

    Peace out!

    3) pretty safe if you get them from a trusted source. Ex. Amazon App Store.

    And welcome buddy! Hope you like your Z10!

    1) there seem to be a few running apps on BBWORLD. But you might be able to find an android apk version if it's free, and run it on the current leaked OS

    2) If they're running BES10, then yes they can. If not you can use Activesync for email accounts. Just to note BB10 devices don't use BIS like legacy devices do. So no data compression but no additional fees

    BlackBerry Z10...best phone I've ever used, just came back from iPhone 5S.
    I can't stay away from BlackBerry 10, it's fluid, fast and gets the job done!
    People with no knowledge of bb10 are truly missing out.

    BlackBerry will flourish in 2014!!!

    I am already flying! lol.. I am glad I made a switch to Z10.. it's fluid, blazing fast, and truly a *multi-tasking* device.. They just need to market their phones right and they should be good.. The lack of apps ain't bothering me.. I use FB,whatsapp, CB 10 mostly.. I heavily use browser and BBM.. Can someone suggest me a good slick case.. no bulky cases pls!

    The lack of apps are greatly exaggerated in my opinion...

    Try the Transformer case and also don't forget to buy a screen protector... since its not Gorilla glass...

    Maybe you can also get the BlackBerry holster which is good enough!

    Happy times for you and your new z10

    Just don't let your wife play with your Z10, you'll be back on the iPhone. Not sure what you consider bulk, check out the Incipio Dual PRO. It adds a little bit, but I like the way my Z10 feels in this case. Their Feather case is slimmer, and either one is less than $15 on Amazon.

    Welcome back, you will be very pleased with Z10 than iPhone 5.
    I made a decision to trade my iPhone 5 to Z10 because of the home button broken a couple of times.

    If you running 10.2, just sideloads all the apps you need through DDPB and get those bar files floating on Google.

    No more lack of apps, the haters always exaggerating things they never tried.

    I couldn't agree more that iPhones are overrated.. It's just that they are marketing gurus which have made them famous. I wouldn't go for side-loads as I am not into apps much.. so, I guess I am doing good at the moment.. I just hope BlackBerry booms in 2014..

    It's a possibility that they can boom in 2014. But they need to get the word out...

    +1 for Cascarun for running. I used Endomondo before finding Cascarun and was thrilled to find a native app. It works great and the developer is on this forum and answers questions.

    You are exactly right. Z10 is awesome, however they need to start marketing BB10. Every other commercial on TV now is an IPhone or SG. Hope you enjoy Your new Z10. I have been enjoying this phone since April and hope to have it a long time! 10.2.1.1055 is great by the way!
