    Well according to your sig block you now have a Q5?
    "BB8520 BB9360 BB9320 BB9900 Galaxy S2 Galaxy S3 Mini now>>> BLACKBERRY Q5"

    There are so many pro/cons to the Z10 it would be too time consuming for anyone to list just for your benefit.
    Have a look around YouTube for Z10 reviews, they are mostly well made and very informative.

    I made exactly the same switch last August. I was a BlackBerry guy before, had a 9650 and a 9930. The GS3 was laggy, and the UI
    was cumbersome. It was a nice phone with a large screen and good camera, but somehow it felt cheap.

    When I got the Z10, it still had the base OS on it, but before I even activated it I loaded a leak (either 10.1 or 10.2, I don't remember). One thing I can say is that it feels a lot faster than the S3, and it is more intuitive.

    Initially I really noticed the lack of apps, but once I started side loading I didn't notice it anymore. Now I have 10.2.1 loaded and don't worry about it at all.

    I have never had any technical issues with it, or observed any glitches in the OS. The one thing that bothers me most is the lack of BB10 native apps to take the place of the Android apps I am now using. Other than that I am really happy with it.

    This is my second time around for the Z 10. With the new update it a whole new device imo. The ability to download most Android apps make this device complete.

    Get a Z30 instead, Z10 is great but Z30 is better.

    Posted via CB10 with Z30 on 10.2.1.2141

    New z10 unlocked is 299 on amazon. Make sure you select the right one for the carrier in your region. You will like it with the latest OS. If you have a bit more and is a heavy user, go for z30. If you are loaded like CB chief Kevin, go for 9982. :-)

    Hi I love my Z10 & now running 10.2.1.1925 it's even sweeter. The only draw back is battery life. It is better with the latest OS update but if you are a heavy user like I am call's text, & e-mails one charge a day will not cut it. Other than that it is one rocking phone. If you don't like the larger size of the Z30 or staying in a budget rock with the Z10... Rocking 24-7 here in HK with my Z10 & 64GB Playbook.

    Congrats dude, you'll love it!

    You should be sure to have 10.2.1 and search the forums for battery saving measures. With those two under control, you can't have a better smartphone experience, imo.

    I have a Z30, but the differences are mostly preference.

    I do believe 537 = 1925

    On phone go to "settings" - "about" - "General" and look next to OS version. Should say 10.2.1.1925

    Get it. Best phone I ever owned. So far. Check out BlackBerry's new motto...There's good security, then there's National security.

    After reading up on the recent and major security flaw with anything Apple, I'll most certainly stick to my Z10. Actually, anything BlackBerry, for that matter.
