Version 10.2 avail when w/AT&T

 

Is there any word when Version 10.2 might be available from AT&T for our Q10s?

 

Thanks!

Last week, BB started releasing 10.2 to only certain markets.  Many have them now.  But the U.S. is said to get it "this winter".

 

We all know when it comes to BB stated time frames, it's always at the very end of that time frame.  That means mid February of 2014 for us.

 

Go to crackberry, and load a leaked OS - which is pretty much the verison getting release officailly everywhere else.  I did and love it.

Re: Version 10.2 avail when w/AT&T

Which leaked version are you running? 

Waiting for AT&T to release an update is like watching paint dry.

 

Are there any limitations you've found?  I've been following the crackberry forum and see some talking about battery drain or camera...

 

Would be good to get a guess as to what AT&T will eventually release, so I can just install now.

 

Funny how Apple iOS releases don't require this same waiting period... Only Android and BlackBerry...

AT&T is probably doing the smart thing delaying release of new versions. Less risk of anomalies after the release has been exercised by other vendors/users.

Really???
I'd argue the opposite. Att probably has the least amount of subscribers of any bb10 carriers. 
Besides it's not like Apple releases perfect products. ios 7 was released and two days later 7.0.2, and then maybe another 2 days after that 7.0.3. 

No one says a user has to upgrade. So let the laggards lag, but let the other folks upgrade if they want. 

Releasing the OS 5-6 months late is a joke. ATT does this with Android too, it's a real shame. 

I wish ATT would treat all the platforms like there ios baby.

Everyone knows that allowing _any_ system upgrades to "mellow" before installing is a good policy.

by "everyone" I assume you mean only the people who sit inside the walls
at&t with no windows or communication with the outside world.

the consumers/paying customers want upgrades...

it benefits no one by delaying and dragging there feet as long as at&t does.

G,  Nope!  I clearly mean users like you and me.

 

Allowing a mellowing period for any updates is prudent so that other people can be inconvenienced with the debugging process if needed.  Ths is true for browsers, photo editors, operating systems, BlackBerry phones, etc., etc., etc.

 

Once the mellowing period elapses and is observed, a smooth upgrade is usually assured.

Re: Version 10.2 avail when w/AT&T

Sorry, I just came back and saw your question about which leak I'm running.

 

Right now, it's 10.2.0.1767

 

No issues for me. 

 

The only real bug I have is that the phone log is one day off.  If I get a phone call from my wife, when I'm done it says the call was at the time I got it, but shows the day as "yesterday".  I'm not sure what that's about, but I haven't seen anyone else mention it anywhere, so I figure it's just me.

 

I plan to jump even further forward and load up the new 10.2.1.1055 later today.  It has all kinds of new goodies I can't wait to get into.  Posts from other AT&T users on Crackberry say it works great.

J,   Please report back in this thread as to how your upgrade goes and if it works for you.

 

Thanks!

Re: Version 10.2 avail when w/AT&T

Took me a while, but I finally got around to loading up 10.2.1.1055.

 

Lots more tweaks and options in the OS.  But, still a few optimizations need to be worked out.  Apps seem to take a little bit longer to load up.

 

What is nice is the ability to directly load android APK files right from the file manager now.  A lot of third party mobile android stores seem to work now.  Not Google Play itself, but others do.  The Amazon App store seems to work for a lot of people. 

 

The new Quick Settings drop down menu is great, and customizable too.  New App Manager gives you much more information and shows all apps on the phone - native, ported, sideloaded and otherwise.

 

A few more revisions to this OS (and some have spotted builds above 12xx now), and it will be much better.

Re: Version 10.2 avail when w/AT&T

Those of us that own BlackBerry 10 devices would like to keep up with the rest of the BlackBerry community around the world. Is AT&T afraid they're going to slow down the rise of their baby (iOS).

BlackBerry 10.2

All other networks worldwide have rolled out the 10.2 OS. Why is it taking so long for AT&T? It is really annoying. Why shouldn't we as ATT customers have the right to get the operation systems like everybody else?

 

I really need some Android apps for work - and I can only do that in the new OS.

 

I'm beginning to think that chosing ATT as my BlackBerry service provider was a serious mistake. I just called your tecnical support customer service (actually, I've doon it three times in the past weeks). None of your personel even knows what BlackBerry 10 is, let alone 10.2. They keep telling me that I need to update with BlackBerry. Tonight, I was even "transferred to RIM" by your customers service rep even though I kept telling her that it is ATT that needs to provide me with BB10-updates. I mean, RIM is not even the name of the company anymore! Needless to say the phone just died after the c/s rep "transferred" me to RIM. 

I am very dissapointed.
