    I'm sure this has been mentioned before, but it's so stupid it needs to be said again, for the last two months I have been bragging to my wife how much better my z10 is than her iphone 5, the other day we get a new wifi printer, out of the box her iphone is able to print on it with no third party app, while Z10 can't print anything. BlackBerry markets this as a business phone for the hyper connected individual, yet it can't match toyphone and print from the same wireless network? Come on blackberry fix this fast, and nobody please say anything about print to go or playcloud, those are not use able solutions

    And ps this printer is not specifically a air print enabled printer, on the box it said prints with all smartphones, should have said "Prints with all smartphone except blackberry Z10

    Yeah, what printer? My daughter can't print on our HP Deskjet 3054 from her i5. We even tried to find an app for that, but there doesn't seem to be one.

    Have you did the whole. Print and go download on your desk top/ laptop where printer is connected to. I have a HP from Walmart that I'd wireless

    It is a Epson wf-2540 the brother and hp printers even if they aren't labeled as air print they still usually have a free app you can download for ios that let's you print from iphone, we'll brother does for sure, hp I've never owned, it'd sure be nice to have something similar for bb10, because when you want to just print off a quick document you don't want to waste time having to turn on your laptop or desktop

    No printing capability with out third party and I am unaware of any third party apps at this time to allow you to print.
    There may be some out there but I agree with the op that it does mock BlackBerry as a business phone when it can't print

    Though I will agree that it should be there, the OP also said that there were third party apps to allow printing if there wasn't a native app. So again time to contact the manufacture and ask about a BB10 app.

    One of the missing functionalities that they need to bring on updates.

    OP does your printer have an email Addy? I can print from my Z10 by emailing the doc I want printed to my hp printer. Not perfect but better than having to turn on the computer.

    Thanks for the update, OP. I was actually in the store today looking at wireless printers. It's good to know that you can now print from a Z10 to a wireless printer.

    This one is tough for BlackBerry since peripherals manufacturers only typically build in support at a hardware level for OS s that have a very large installed base.

    Blackberry could enable printing on OS10 devices, but the support costs would be huge. Maybe when we get the one device solution that BlackBerry has been talking about, they will enable printing on the phones.

    I think the way it is with my new printer, that is all you need, as long as you have a phone capable of sending an email, then you can print from it, I figure in a few years all the wireless printers will come with this feature, don't need any additional apps or dongles or anything like that.
