    I've had my Verizon Z10 for over 2 weeks. I've downloaded about 15 apps from BlackBerry World and side loaded two (Netflix and Words with Friends). Battery life is fair, I have to charge it midday if I'm up late. It has rebooted on its own once. No issues with speed of emails or texts and I'm on Cox Cable's ancient pop mail server. I'm eagerly awaiting the OS upgrade we deserved weeks ago, but nothing would make me return my phone.

    I keep repating myself

    It seems only in the US.

    I have no reboot or lag in my mobile and it works fine for me. With android apps like radio 538 (dutch radio) it works or was not working or just hangs sometimes, I also had sometimes a reboot and then everything goes black and a minute later i was back (soft reboot mostly). Sometimes it hangs i pull out the battery and it was fine again. I had android 4.2.2. and i will not say BB10 is beter, but it works for me.

    I can with ease stream music with deezer, download some apps and browse the internet without problems and still have 900 Mb Ram left. It's still flowing and with android it will go in slow mode to work.

    Reboot issue and auto start up is most likely a hardward issue my first Z10 had both issues second one just has duplicate contacts now. Texts will go slow when you first conect t0 the network that will clear up.. it did on mine

    I have a Z10 from Verizon and have had no reboot issues. I did have an SMS problem but looked it up on Crackberry and fixed the settings issue. Now SMS works fine. Sorry to hear that the OP didn't give it a chance.

    I played with the Z10 at the AT&T store for 15-20 minutes and came away impressed but can see why people would return the phone.

    Hardware feels pretty solid - I thought it would be horrible given the plastic but it's not. (Take note Samsung!)
    Software was pretty easy to pick up and use - No lag or anything.

    The issues I saw were with app support and the OS being too one dimensional. I felt like the only 2 screens I saw constantly were the home screens (with your icons) and the hub page.

    A lot of people are having issues with Verizon Z10's and have been getting replacements from them. I have one from AT&T and have had no reboots or any sort of problem in almost a month. Text messages are sent fast too.

    In the two weeks I have had my AT&T it has locked and then self booted three times. Twice while scrolling down emails and once when turning pages on a Kindle book. It has been the only problem I have had with an otherwise flawless Z10.

    It's a new software environment and people aren't impressed they assume automatically it's like the predecessor OS 5,6,7 etc. It's like me for instance don't like Win 8, but after using it over a period of time you've to learn to love it.

    Text messages fast on T-Mobile. There was a thread on a possible fix for some. I can guide you through if need be. It was in the hub settings.

    I have had some side loaded apps crash in the us. All the other stuff works perfectly. I don't know but either the Verizon models suck or something. I also believe there are some people filling the forums with fud but there is no way I can definitively prove that.

    I have Verizon and my phone does reboot sometimes and also locks up occasionally but I figure that once they update the Os, that the problem will go away. It's definitely not bad enough that I would return it. My sms isn't delayed at all. My battery life is dependent on my coverage level. In my plant, we have Verizon repeaters that support LTE, and my battery meter barely budges all day. At home, due to the wire net in my real plaster walls, reception sucks and my battery pays the price. The only app I don't have that I miss from my old phone is Shazam. My biggest complaint about the Z10 is I haven't found how to separate text messages into individual bubbles so that I can see time stamps for every message instead of just the most recent ones. I could change it on BB7 and prefer it that way

    Which settings change did you make?

    I'm sure you're right. I used my rapid charger with my 9850 for Torch, with no adverse effects. I just felt the need to try anything to increase my battery life. I'm not sure why my battery power increased, I'm not glad it did!
    Two likely factors:
    1. You trained yourself out of playing with all the bells and whistles. It is well known that a new toy gets more play in the first week or so, and that increases battery drain. You can even see this when a used phone is handed to a new user - for several days the charge life is usually shorter than it was for the previous user. I even demonstrated this myself when work sent me a "used but good" phone replacement last week, and I spent the next 2 days in the menus setting my own preferences!

    2. You trained the battery charge and meter systems. When a new phone comes out of manufacture the indicator and charging control are effectively uncalibrated. Indications will be approximately correct but they often seem to improve significantly over the first week or so.

    3. The battery itself often seems to improve apparent capacity over the first 5-10 charges. Again this is subjective with Lithium cells and difficult to distinguish from (1) or (2) but I've seen an increase in performance too often to discount completely when I've put a new battery on an existing phone or laptop.

    As for using the high capacity supply from a PB, this will do no harm and make no difference except (maybe) time to charge. The little brick is a power supply, nothing more, all the control of charging is done by the phone. Providing the maximum output capability of the supply is greater than the phone's demand the actual charge rate is the same (the excess capability is ignored) and the final charge level will be the same. The only time you will see a difference is if the rated output of the charger is less than the desired input rate for the phone, when the result is usually a longer time to deliver the same charge to the battery. You will often see this if you compare charging with the standard AC supply (750mA max output) or a computer's USB output (500mA rated output) into a phone designed for a 700mA charge rate.

    For what it's worth the reboot issues on my T-Mobile have vanished and without me doing anything about it. It used to reboot several times a day. In the past several days I have not noticed a reboot.

    I have not been running the CB10 app in an active frame lately so maybe it is a culprit?
