    Hi guys,

    I have updated my BB Z10 OS using the UK Vodafone sim card. There are maybe some more users of this model in India who would want to update the OS but do not have access to the sim card required for updation of OS. I had bought two sim cards, one of which I am keeping with me for the future updates and the other one if anyone requires, pls tell me and I will courier you the same. The only thing I ask is that if anyone else from India posts here that they need the sim card for updating the OS, then the person to whom I am sending the card will further courier the card to the next one, and so on.

    To anyone wondering, this is totally free of cost, only for the love of blackberry and for all the blackberry lovers.

    Note - Sim card sent through courier to Devanshu Srivastava, if anyone else requires it pls post here or send me a pm.

    Thanks for this altruistic initiative.

    I am thinking of buying a z10 from a guy who has got it from UK and is selling it fairly cheap compared to the model officially available in India.

    Can you tell me if there are any drawbacks in using the UK model in India ? Will there be any issues with the PIN etc ? Will i need a UK sim everytime i want to update the OS ?

    No drawbacks, what pin u r talking about I don't understand. If ur talking about the unlock code then no it has to be unlocked only once. Sim u will need every time u want to update. Mapmyindia u won't be able to use on ur phone. I think that's it.
    Other difference is only that the UK phone is lte enabled and the Indian model is not.

    Great, just remember it takes a lot of time and sometime it may seem that it is not proceeding but don't do anything and it will work. In my case it took about half an hour each for downloading and updating. And if U don't get a notification for the update just do a manual software update check and it will come. Switch off the phone, put in the uk ism card and switch it on, U will see the Vodafone splash screen, it catches Vodafone India btw, then connect to WiFi and go for the update. All the best, both for updating and ur exams.

    all u hav to do is follow these simple steps
    1] connect ur phone with ur pc via a usb cable
    2]open bb link n take a backup
    3]now uninstall bb link n install it again n select language English UK n country UK [for stl 100-2]
    4]now connect ur phone with ur pc via usb cable
    5] now in bb link select ur pc n click on settings icon n select reload device software
    6] bb link now vl search for updates for ur phone n u vl receive the lastest OS available for the country u hav select earlier
    7] if u get any download error thn try it on another pc-tis worked for me
    8] now wait n let the download finish according to ur download speed n bb link vl load the latest os for U on ur device...
    tis takes 6-8 hours in india to download n update ur z10's OS...good luck n cheers. Jai hind

    Great Devanshu, congrats. Nothing specific, after update my phone worked pretty good. No problems at all, seemed a little faster though. What version did u get, 10.0.10.90 or 10.0.10.99, as somebody else posted that 99 is the latest version. If ur into side loading then u can install the battery indicator bar file from my bother thread " stl 100-2 battery life post Update", it will give u a pretty good idea of the battery life.

    I downloaded WhatsApp but it shows error while installation.

    Updates in Settings says my BlackBerry os is latest even though it is on 10.0.10.261.

    How do I update?
