    The Verizon app is a real app. You open it and get usage info, upgrade dates, etc. The backup contacts app even has an active frame.

    A real app, yes, but in no way the same as on their other devices...need to be able to access the DVR and program remotely as well as many other options available to other platforms ( ie. using the phone as a remote control).

    Back when I had my storm, BlackBerry was the first platform these options were available for....just goes to show what Verizon thinks of BlackBerry today.

    Separate apps. On other platforms there is My Verizon and Verizon FiOS apps. We only get My Verizon, which is pretty much feature parity.

    Backup Assistant we only get contacts while android gets multiple files support.

    And yeah I agree compared to Storm Verizon is supporting BlackBerry less with apps now.

    If you have Z10 and not getting or receiving a notification for OTA, you can upgrade using BB Link, it's available there.

    Or you could be wrong.
    I just spoke with Verizon's tech support and 10.2 isn't even scheduled to be released. So we are definitely going to be waiting a while for an update. The interesting thing to me was that(according to the rep) there were updates for legacy devices in December but nothing for BB10 owners. So with "winter" being the time frame given i think it's safe to say anybody with a VZW BB10 phone should find another means of an update if you're getting impatient

    I was just on Verizons Web site and there is no update for both the Q10 or Z10 for 10.2. I see some are downloading from the link but otherwise I don't think Verizon has made it official yet

    I'm on Verizon with a Q10 also. Per the schedule which was posted in this and several other threads, our update is scheduled for a rollout tomorrow (EST, GMT-5). If you don't see it in the the morning, wait a couple of hours and try again.

    Was the update only on link? I don't see it as the latest update on Verizons Web site for the Z or the Q10

    Read my post just above yours. Verizon update for the Q10 is supposed to begin rolling out tomorrow. To check for it, go to the Software Updates section of your phone's settings, and click "Check for Updates". Hopefully sometime tomorrow we will all see an update available.

    It's February 4th and no sign of an update both OTA and link! Verizons Web site still does not indicate that there is a pending update for any bb10 device.

    What time zone are you in? Even in EST it's currently only 6am. The guy who flips the switch is probably just now getting into the shower..... ;-)

    It is frustrating. However a small glimmer of hope may be that it's still early, and if you look at the Z10 software update material, eventhough it says it was updated on (1/28/2014) the documents still say 10.1.0.2151 so that doesn't appear to be updated either, eventhough the update has been pushed for Z10s

    Hopefully today is the day.

    It's still early in the morning here on the east coast.

    Be patient, I have no doubt it will come. Maybe through link?

    Why do you keep mentioning Verizon's Website? There will be no mention on their site. Rollout schedule was confirmed by BlackBerry for Verizon:
    Z10 on 1/28
    Q10 on 2/4
    Z30 on 2/10

    You have 3 download options.
    1. BlackBerry Website but PC only
    2. BlackBerry Link once "the switch" is flipped
    3. OTA through WiFi which will stagger throughout the day based on geography.

    You'll get it today buddy. Be patient and check when you can. Eventually you'll be downloading and installing with no problems.

    I think he's referring to the Software update PDFs they post telling you what's new in the OS. Not sure if that's what you're asking him about, but usually they update that page the day of release. Or moments before.

    Well none of the three listed options, web/link/ota, indicate an update for Q10. This is beyond getting old. Apparently VZW is not interested in keeping a simple promise.

    To be fair, there was no promise.

    Verizon never announced any update dates. A roadmap leaked with the dates.

    While accurate for the Z10 it's possible the Q10 and z30 dates were changed.
