    Yes. I am a Verizon customer and always pay full price and buy off contract. They've made the website "trickier" over the years for folks like me that's for sure.

    Z10STL100-4/10.2.1.2141
    It really is confusing. I bought my Verizon Z30 back in December and had the hardest time figuring out how to buy it outright from the website. Finally lucked into selecting 'month to month' which then allowed me to complete the purchase with no contract. Very tricky to navigate.

    I was also wondering..is there a latest release of 10.2.1 available for Z30 on Sachesi? I tried searching and couldn't find anything. I don't want to install the wrong files etc. I also don't want any leaks.

    I'm thinking of getting a Z30 from Verizon at $499 month-to-month. Is the wireless charging worth it? Realize I'm coming from a dying iPhone 4s. Can I activate the Z30 with the TMO SIM that's currently in my unlocked Nexus 4? Any other decent prepaid carriers out there for Verizon phones?

    Pro tip. Get the $60 promo plan and cancel after a day. You'd only have to pay $350 for the ETF, $2 for prorated charges, and potentially $35 for activation. The phone is $499 on their website and doing it this way would only be $387ish and I'm not even sure that you'd be charged the activation because it might be waived if service I'd canceled in the first three days.

    I'm going to use the z30 on my att account. It comes unlocked so just putting my sim card in. I'm not activating with Verizon so I shouldn't have to worry about other charges. Odd how they wanted me to choose a phone number and etc for the new phone though. I think if I activated with with verizon I'd be charged the month to month charge and the $35 fee. When it arrives I'm just putting att sim card in so I should hopefully be all set.

    Daniel (OP), you currently have a Z10 paired up with your at&t SIM card? Do you have a mobile share plan with a $40 charge for the smartphone? That's what my wife and I have; mine is an iPhone 4S. I'm now out of contract, month-to-month, with my iPhone. Everyone: If I take out its SIM card and insert it into a Verizon-bought Z30, would the at&t faux-G working on the Z30? Will at&t have a problem with this because the SIM card was originally in my iPhone 4S?

    I have a normal plan, it's a individual one. I get 450 mins/month, 3 gigs of data..unlimited texting..mobile to mobile. Everyone else that has switched their ATT sim over to the Z30 has been fine as far as I know.

    Well, I may be getting a new phone sooner than later. This morning my iPhone 4S fell into a big puddle as I was exiting my car. The AT&T store had nothing except for a display Z10. Will likely visit the Verizon store this weekend. Leaning on the VZW Z30 because of the wireless charging, and it appears to be only $100 more than the unlocked VZW Q10.

    Sorry to hear about your accident. I received my z30 on Friday evening. It's been working good so far. 4g signal. The total for it was $529.99 after tax with free over night shipping.

    I tried 2 different autoloader versions and with both BBM would not work among some other issues. I used sacheis to load OS 10.2.1.2141 or software release 10.2.1.2102 and it has been working alright on my vzw z30

    OK. But what carrier and country did you use? What exact info did you input into Sachesi to get the right 10.2.1?

    I just tried downloading with the info provided but it's not doing anything. Could this be because I downloaded the same update for my Z10 from Rogers a while back and it thinks I had already downloaded it? will that update work with my Verizon Z30?

    I have looked online at Amazon.com: Online Shopping for Electronics, Apparel, Computers, Books, DVDs & more and they have them there unlocked for $480.00.
    Avoid buying from anyone who does not list the specific model # they are selling. You will most likely get a random model which may or may not get you 4G..

    Just use autoloader, make a backup (i would actually start fresh and avoid backup/restore process) and just autoload the latest leak.

    Thanks, but I don't feel comfortable using an autoloader. I guess I'll just wait for a usable update on Sachesi to appear.

    Can I use the same update I used for my Z10 for my Z30? Isn't it the same update? or are there difference because of the model of the phone? It doesn't seem to wanna download the Vodafone stuff, I'm assuming because I have the same information from Rogers when I downloaded the latest version of 10.2.1 for my Z10.

    There is a difference between Z10/Z30 but no difference between Z30 STA X models. So you need Z30 specific leak.
    I actually prefer autoloader because I like to start clean, and doing it as soon as getting the phone helps overcome the frustration of losing settings/apps.

    Which version do you want to get? Anything with 10.2.1 will be fine, no huge difference between releases except some minor fixes.

    Well, I was trying to get the Vodafone release but it wouldn't let me download it, first time Sachesi ever acted up for me. Not sure why it wouldn't let me. I hit the download all and it doesn't do anything.That's why I asked if I could just use the release from Rogers I used for my Z10 a little while back. As it's already on my computer. But as you said the release is different for a Z10/Z30.

    I checked Sachesi again under Rogers, for the Z30 and I changed the Variant to STA 100-5 and the 10.2.1 update showed up. Can I use this one for my Verizon Z30? I tried downloading the 10.2.1 update for Z30 via the Vodafone update on Sachesi using Variant STA 100-2 and it wouldn't download, so would this be ok to try?

    UPDATE-- I just tried the Rogers update and everything seems fine so far, I now have 10.2.1 on my Z30!!
