    Just wondering if anyone else has noticed a longer boot time for the Z10 when you enable SIM card PIN number security?

    My boot times are:
    1min 30 secs without SIM card security.
    5min 10 secs with SIM card security.

    Does anyone have any idea why this is? Presumably the handset is checking something - but for THAT long?

    My old Nokia basic phone just takes the same amount of time to boot regardless of whether SIM card security is on or not.

    Handset: Z10 - STL 100-2
    Carrier: Vodafone UK

    Ever since I upgraded to 10.2.1 boot up time has significantly increased. But >5 minutes.. that's crazy. Fint know how long mine takes, but it doesn't feel that long.

    I thought the phone was bricked. Finally got a stopwatch out to time the differences. More than 5mins to boot though - and I thought the PlayBook took an age to boot up... an ice age.

    Hey, one of my previous Bolds took 13 minutes!!!! It was truly absurd.

    I was thinking that would have been solved in the new update. Been that way since. .1925

    Not sure why. I'm still on 10.1 and if I lock my SIM it doesn't take any longer to boot. However, I have noticed there seems to be a "time out" on the SIM unlock -- if I don't do it right away it says "no SIM detected" -- kiss it off. However, that may be because I have wifi-calling.

    Same here. It takes more than five minutes to boot the Z10. It's extremely annoying, especially now and then when it randomly reboots.

    Same! Since I upgraded my os to Z10STL100-2/ and changed my carrier to vodafone, boot time is taking forever to finish.
