    Anyone had a successful update on the Z30 for Verizon? I've seen many using the OTA on other carriers having mixed results. I would much rather go with a clean install with the autoloader and was curious if anyone has seen good results? Or should I wait for the fix for other models?

    i have a VZW Z30 and have been using 10.3.1 for months and no issues like the ones reported here on the boards.

    No rotation lock issues ? What about issues with SNAP ? Doc Neutron

    Well, what I don't know is if Verizon (or AT&T and other carriers that did not release the OS) users have had some of the issues with the BLACK screen and rotation, etc. Or if only officially released patrons have had these issues. In other words, there definitely have been issues/bugs and you have to consider that when getting this now WITHDRAWN OS. Many have had absolutely no problems and others have had severe issues - the BLACK screen is pretty bad.

    At first I installed a Blitz NON-destructive and did have some rotation issues (in the camera and video presentation) but then used the Autoloader found on CB and have not had issues. But I also have not had my battery go to zero which seems to cause the Black screen bug.

    I don't do Visual Voice Mail so can't comment. But I do not have lag or rotation issues. What is the issue or supposed issue with SNAP? I just fired it up and it opened and I searched for an app and it found it.

    I guess I will be following this thread . . I have a brand new Verizon Z30 coming today and just assumed I'd run the autoloader on it before I did much in the way of set-up . . I ran the autoloader on my z10 and have had no issues, but I have never let my battery get to zero either. Seems like its hard to get any definitive guidance on this right now?

    Those are developer OSes. Many features are not implemented or broken. Do not install one of those.

    10.3.1.2267 is the latest complete OS.

    Z30STA100-5/10.3.1.2267

    I would seriously "re-think" your decision to reload a leaked OS on a brand new device. Run it as received, that way you get a baseline for the device, how it works, what works, and the general performance. This device is sweet! Battery life is just, well seems to last "forever", I get almost 2 days with light to moderate use, and with heavy use a good full day...

    Then, after a while then goahead and load a leaked OS with sachesi or autoloader, whichever you choose, and then see how the device runs/handles.

    Make sure you backup your docs/contacts/images/music etc. to a folder on you pc someplace safe before you do a wipe reload of the OS...

    Ok, thanks Carl! That makes sense so that I can make sure the device is working fine . . I can certainly wait, its just that I have really really really enjoyed using BlackBerry Blend with my Z10 and I think Blend only works with 10.3.1 (?) . .

    Glad to hear your good word on the Z30, I keep hearing so much good about it and my aging eyes need an upsize from the z10 ;-)

    And wait for BB to fix then update for the "legacy" devices, Z10/Z30.........Read the forums here and watch/wait until the update (which BB pulled) is right.

    rev.....BlackBerry Blend works on 10.3 or later versions... just downloaded it with 10.3 on my Z30 - Phenomenal....

    So great to be able to see all of your "BlackBerry Hub" activities on your computer screen and be able to respond without picking up your device.

    Oh, and I had the Z10 ....nice phone... have a Z30....Awesome phone.....

    Enjoy

    OK, did the autoloader thingy as suggested above... looks like I'll need to re-install a bunch of apps,
    ring tone, wallpaper.

    Did the backup thingy, two different ways.

    As to my Contacts...., there is no Contacts folder on the device, but a miserable set of like 10 contacts
    that are "somewhere". On my card there are like 150 Contacts. When I try to copy say, five and paste
    them, the OS slaps my hand - something about not being a write-able device. Can I use my Link/Backup to
    get my contacts ? Is there another slick way to do this ? Doc Neutron

    Did you use BBLink to backup your data (contacts) before using the Autoloader? If so you should be able to restore.

    You mention that they are or may be on "my card" so what do you mean? Did you use some other app to place them there?

    Did you sync or use a Google, yahoo or Outlook.com account where your contacts might be saved?

    Did use BBLink. Also did drag and drop. Do have Contacts saved via Outlook. Do have a set on my SIM card. Using Windows 7 or Super File Manager PRO, do not see Device folder "Contacts". Is this normal? Cannot simply drag and drop via Windows 7 - may need to be Administrator. Get sweaty, shaky nervous with BB Link. Can I use it to precisely restore just my Contacts.?

    If you have the Contacts in Outlook (the Office module, not their website?), you should be able to use the Sync function for Calendar and Contacts. But make sure to configure it to save from COMPUTER to Phone (one way) so that the phone's fewer contacts does not over-write those in Outlook.

    If they are on the sim card, open the Contacts app. Swipe down for Settings. Scroll down toward the bottom of that screen. There's the Sim Card options. One is IMPORT from Sim card.

    I am not entirely fond of BBlink either. Hit and miss. I'm not sure if you can only restore Contacts - it may entail restoring more than just them. Whatever you do, try the Custom restore. And then in Details, do NOT restore Blackberry Runtime (it is the Android module and restoring an older one has caused problems).

    Good luck.

    TY. Did the Contact X thing - works. Interesting: Contact X, before and after exporting to my Device, does NOT see a Contacts folder !!! I will indeed try your moves with inhouse Contacts app. Again, thanks.
