BlackBerry 10 devices are being updated to 10.2.1 now. However, not all customers see that OTA update, depending on their carrier. BlackBerry checks the MCC/MNC of your SIM card before delivering the update. However, that SIM does not have to be active. You can use any old SIM from a different carrier.
MCC/MNC for German carriers are 262-01 for T-Mobile, 262-02 for Vodafone, 262-03 for E-Plus, 262-07 for O2. With my Vodafone SIM in place, I would not get the update, with my O2 SIM it started right away.
Any problems with the radio? Not the FM, I mean connection to mobile networks.
It's a great update, loads of new features, worked on my Q10 perfectly. Blackberry is not dead yet!
"BlackBerry checks the MCC/MNC of your SIM card before delivering the update." ==> why?
Please reboot the BB again. We updated several devices and some of them had this issue too
Btw, update only when you have enough free memory :-)
@Dieter: Because the carrier has to approve the update before it is being delivered to the device.
I got it, even in roaming here in the USA (Chicago area). A lot of nice features, even the way to switch between private and business took me a minute to find :-). I really like some extensions like quick access to flight mode.
This is a really nice update. The new Hub pinch gesture is fantastic. I like all changes I found so far, with the notable exception of the new "no alert" icon for calendar entries that do not have alerts.
Best function: reply now
@Ralph: I like Reply Now, too, but it's not a new feature, it was already introduced in OS 10.2.0.
Works with decommissioned SIM Cards,too. They don´t have to be active or logged in to the mobile network. This is why I never throw away old SIM cards....
Just saw, that Volker pointed that out already in his initial post. Sorry about that.
@Jochen: you are right. It seems that i have missed it until i have seen the new answer call screen... ;-)
Mir gefällt ja das neue Schnellmenü auch sehr gut, und als Q-Nutzer natürlich die Direktwahl. Die in strategischer Hinsicht sicherlich interessanteste Neuerung ist aber die hier: http://hebig.org/temp/IMG_20140130_010045.png - apk-Direktinstallation. (Und wie man sieht steht jetzt auch das Datum in Foto-Dateinamen. Solche kleinen Verbesserungen gibt es ganz viele.)
How stupid that is? We have three BB10 devices with two carriers and I had to shuffle SIM cards around because some carriers "don't get it"?!?
I understand this may be of interest while actually connected OTA to such carrier, but when connected ONLY through WLAN/WiFi to the Internet .. WTF?!?
FYI: There's a Traveler Interim Fix which addresses issues with BB 10.2.1 devices: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21663423&myns=swglotus&mynp=OCSSYRPW&mync=E
