    Hi,

    I'm with EE, UK, and, as is their annoying way, the official 10.1 update for the Z10 is nowhere to be seen, despite Vodafone & O2 pusing it out yesterday. I rang them last night, and, after holding for 10 minutes, the person came back with "Sorry Sir, the update hasn't been sent to us by Blackberry, and we have no information otherwise". Cretins.

    If I grabbed a Voda/O2 SIM and out it in my phone, that would work, right? Just wanted to check before I go ahead an buy one today for no reason...

    Cheers.

    If your fone is unlocked to all networks and you put a voda or O2 sim in you WILL get the update.

    Worked perfectly for me in Romania: I used a Vodafone Romania SIM card with no data plan, updated via WiFi (I have an unlocked phone).
    My regular SIM card for the Z10 is from another provider (Cosmote Romania), which didn't make the update available (as of last evening, that is).
    No problems with the update, it worked perfectly on the Cosmote network afterwards, without any restore (the update managed to keep all of my data - even the apn settings).

    Just be very patient and don't restart your phone even if it seems frozen. After the update was installed, the first reboot took ages (5 to 10 min.), but let it do its job and all will be fine (total update time for me: ~80 min.).

    First put a friends micro sim other than EE and check if your phone is unlocked. If it is get a free micro sim off Vodafone website for free or if you can't wait get it for a quid or so in a shop. Pop it in and go to settings> software update> and check for update it should show there is 10.1 waiting for you.

    Hope this helps.

    Get your sim card out the phone and check over wifi for the update.
    Or just pop the other provider sim in and if they have the update you will get.

    Does that mean I can just take out my sim card and update over wifi with no sim card in the phone? Would that work??
