    BlackBerry’s update process in the first year of BlackBerry 10 wasn’t fantastic for its U.S. customers. Aside from some specific Z10 owners that are on Verizon, the U.S. BB10 consumer base has been stuck with 10.1 officially up until this point. You can mainly blame American wireless carriers for that, but obviously, BlackBerry hasn’t been too happy with how it’s gone either.

    Tomorrow, BlackBerry 10.2.1 will officially be launched at 8am EST, and a lot of carriers will have the update available right away including one U.S. carrier, Verizon. Big Red’s Z10 will be getting 10.2.1 tomorrow morning with no limitations on number of users that have access to it, like before. If you’re on AT&T, T-Mobile, or Sprint though, don’t worry, your update is coming a lot sooner than we expected originally.

    According to sources with knowledge of the update, BlackBerry is planning on having every major carrier in the world have a 10.2.1 update available to its customers by the end of February, with most jumping on board within the first couple of weeks. The great news for those of us in the States, is that that plan also includes the four major U.S. carriers.

    We’ve been given a few tentative dates for U.S. carrier 10.2.1 releases, but keep in mind these are subject to change. The keyword here is “tentative,” but for now, they seem pretty solid to us.
    Verizon Z10: Starting tomorrow, January 28th, 2014
    Verizon Q10: Tuesday, February 4th, 2014
    Verizon Z30: Monday, February 10th, 2014
    AT&T Z10 & Q10: Monday, February 10th, 2014
    T-Mobile Z10 & Q10: Mid-February (anywhere from Feb 10th to Feb 20th)
    Sprint Q10: End of February

    U.S. carriers apparently circumvented 10.2 all together, and were able to get their asses out of their heads for enough time to approve 10.2.1 in a timely fashion. Hopefully these updates go smoothly, and everyone can enjoy 10.2.1, and all the benefits it brings along.

    Telus is usually pretty much right away with these. I expect that they will be tomorrow.

    Anyone care to comment if they know otherwise.

    I am hoping that they are wrong about AT&T not releasing it until Feb 10th. I wish BB would ignore the carriers and go direct to us. AT&T claims they are supportive of BB but waiting 2 weeks to release it is not really showing "true support". I blame BB almost as much as I blame the U.S. carriers. BB has failed to communicate to the faithful about what is happening and when it is happening. If it was not for CRACKBERRY and other websites we would be in total darkness.

    If you actually saw the Pink Floyd "Animals Tour" back in the 70's you would have actually got to witness pigs flying, as I did.

    We can only hope this actually happens as planned

    They have a term for that these days. It's called animal cruelty.

    Well I'm excited. I have no idea why because I already have the .1925 leak. Maybe I'm excited for all those other BB10 users who don't yet know what they've been missing. It will definitely be good for people to start getting a look at the potential BB10 has to offer.

    Can you please.... stop asking this in EVERY 10.2.1 thread. When it starts rolling out it will be posted plus, you can check yourself to see if the update is available.
