    Bare with me, I promise to get to the point! So I'm sure many of us have wondered when we will receive the official update for 10.2 and have taken that question beyond the forums and straight to our carriers. If your experience is anything like mine with Verizon, the response has either been "we don't have any information at time" or "we unfortunately cannot share that type of information with our customers". Today I was in a Verizon store and was talking to the guy who claimed to be the manager's manager. Apparently he manages multiple stores, referred to himself as a regional manager or director or something. I was there with a friend who recently bought a Q10 there and was grabbing a holster. The salesman who sold me my Q10 and Z10 and my friends Q10 mentioned to this "big time" manager I guess that we were big advocates of BlackBerry and that we've bought the only 3 BlackBerry 10 devices this particular salesman has sold. He struck up a conversation with us inquiring about what we liked so much about BlackBerry. Rather than share any info with him, I asked if he had used or seen a demo of the BlackBerry 10 OS. He replied NO in a pretty assertive manner. I asked him if he had used or seen a demo of iOS, Android, or Windows and he replied that he has either used or seen all of those. Now I was bit fired up, but remained calm and told him that's bad business ownership on his part. I told him that if he the "big boss" he should know every OS and device that his stores are offering their customers. He should be an expert on all of them. He doesn't have to like them all, but at the very least he should know about them. I asked him why he didn't know anything about BlackBerry 10 and he said he works for Verizon and they decide what brands they carry but BlackBerry wouldn't be one if it was his choice. OKAY, now on to the important thing he did say. I pushed him pretty hard about 10.2 asking when Verizon would release it. He actually said he had no idea there was even a 10.1 so at that point the conversation was over, or so we thought. As my friend was being rung up for his new holster, the director came back and said, "while I can't give you any firm date, I can assure that VERIZON WILL BE THE FIRST US CARRIER TO PUSH OUT THE UPDATE". He then walked away. Not sure what to think here, this guy goes from knowing nothing and being abrasive to all of sudden making such a bold statement.

    Hopefully he's right and it is soon but for someone who didn't even know there was a 10.1 update in the first place, I would take this with a massive grain of salt.

    He's lying, Verizon isn't the first to do anything. The people here at the Verizon store in Cypress,CA had no idea that a Z30 was coming out or that Verizon had twittered that info a month ago.

    They will be the first to "push" the update. Yeah the first to push it to the side and test something else first.

    Just install a 10.2 leak if you can. I have had no problem with 10.2.0.1047, except that it keeps asking me to update my Evernote login. And it seems that the latest 10.2 leaks are just as stable and more complete.

    So about those leaks...no can do. Let's just say my BlackBerry doesn't belong to me and someone else is in control of it, lol. Read between the lines.

    I read that ATT is rolling out 10.2 starting today. Some already have it. No word from VZW yet. Guess the mgr WAS lying. BlackBerry needs a carrier that will support the product. At this time VZW is not that carrier.

    VZW is also US's biggest carrier by a large margin, so BB doesnt have much pull.

    Probably just the Z30 launch, it will roll with 10.2 but when they will update z10 or q's I can't imagine.

    Do one of the last two 10.2.0.xxxx leaks they are way more stable than early carrier software from my experience.
