If you're in possession of a BlackBerry Z10 on AT&T that's still running an older OS, now would be a perfect time to go ahead and check for updates. We're starting to see some cases of OS 10.1.0.2074 rolling out in the CrackBerry Forums plus, we've also received several emails from folks stating the update has finally arrived as well. Some changes noted in this release are:

  • Keyboard improvements including, word prediction by swiping up on letters to retrieve an entire word, delete words with a single swipe to the left, hide the keyboard with the spacebar or swiping down with two fingers
  • Setup Toolkit tutorials, BB made additional video tutorials available in the setup buffer
  • Improvements on post Balance activation instructions and made it easier to find instructions to switch between work spaces
  • Reworked user interface (UI )in the email/sms text entry field to better expose message actions (attach, formatting, importance flag)
  • Improved visibility in Hub for message service connectivity/status. Added yield sign graphic and top line status bar to emphasize connectivity problems. Added an “activity spinner” on manually invoked “refresh

The update should weigh in at around 334MB with it arriving OTA (Over The Air) in addition to being available through BlackBerry Link. If you're not seeing it OTA as of yet, give it some time to appear or try grabbing it through BlackBerry Link. Also of note, if you're running a leaked OS higher than this release, there's a good chance in it may not appear for you. In which case, if you want to be on an official build you'll need to downgrade via a factory reset and then download the official OS that way. Meanwhile, at Verizon HQ.

AT&T finally rolling out BlackBerry 10.1 update for the BlackBerry Z10

264 Comments

If AT&T are losers I hate to see what you call the "brilliant" folks in charge at Verizon! I'm probably going to be running 10.2 before they release 10.1

Not just AT&T after months of "testing" I download and install the new update. What's the first app I go for? SKYPE of course. Well doesn't work, won't even open. WTF!? After testing forever the most popular app that will be downloaded doesn't work!!!!!
I put this on Blackberry not AT&T because my friends Blackberry needs this to work way more than AT&T does. Blackberry should have checked.
Never loaded a non-official update. Skype should just work and doesn't. Super Fail out of the gate. Oh Blackberry how long do you think we'll take it????

I am on AT&T and have 10.1.0.4537 loaded. Its a leak and guess what, Skype works just fine. Not only that, but battery life is very much improved. Don't blame BlackBerry if Skype is not working. It worked fine on a previous leak I ran as well. Maybe you have not set it up properly or logged on to Skype?

Sure some of you will blame AT&T or Skype, but the truth is Blackberry needs this to work more than either of those two. The NEED it to work, the NEED happy customers. They NEED people like me saying “ya I have Skype on Blackberry phone.” But I can’t

Epic Epic Epic fail for Blackberry. How long are we expected to take it? As of now my next phone will not be a Blackberry. They have a year or two to win me back but this was the final straw, I will not be a returning customer, after being a huge fanboy for years.

What's so wrong about a leak? Just kick AT&T in the 4$$ and install the freaking leak. This really is a problem that hardly lies in BBRYs hands, AT&T can do whatever they want. And they decided to screw you up.

Posted via CB10

Maybe I will, but that misses the point. Blackberry needs people like me saying oh ya I have Skype on my phone. Not oh ya I have Skype on my phone all I had to do was install a leaked OS to make it work. That says more wrong about the phone than just keeping one's mouth shut (which isn't good for BB either).

Also i'm thinking about my friend who bought a Z10 basically because I did. There is no way he will install a leaked OS. So he is going to update and find Skype doesn't work. S$%T!!! I want to feel good about BB not constantly jumping through hoops with it. Can't they make a product that works. And if it's AT&T that's still BB's fault can't they grow up and just release an official OS on their website, Jesus!

Its the carriers. SaskTel is the same way. Late updates. I'm running 10.1.0.273. My buddy that's on Bell is running 10.1.0.2017 or something like that.

I have been debating on what course to go, and the update popped up. I went the easy route and am updating to to the official from the .1888 leak. We will see. I did a backup so if I decide to go with the .4537 leak, I'm half way there.

wasn't the first leak earlier than this version worked fine then on my AT&T Z10. I so want to install that version now just so I can prove user error like most of these complaints.

The only "user error" on my part would be if some other app (not open) is screwing it up. I only download official stuff. There is no user error as far as the apps itself, because it won't even open!

I haven't had an issue with Skype; it's working great. Got my AT&T update this morning, installed Skype and started chatting with an is coworker.

Posted via CB10

oh great 8/ now AT&T, Blackberry and Skype can all point fingers and do nothing. Meanwhile my phone won't run Skype.

As far as I can see this is down to Blackberry since I've paid for a Z10 that should run Skype and it doesn't. :(

Anyone have any ideas on what I should do? Won't even work after a reboot and reinstall.

Update, will not run Taptu or Kayak, basically it's fucked a bunch of my android apps AT&T is a piece of shit, but Blackberry should have caught this. Damn it!!!! phone is worse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Add Kindle to the list.......

Really F-ing helpful I'm still a customer who doesn't mess around with my phone so it's still the fault of these companies how the hell is it my fault?

Yes. I talked to Blackberry, oh I don't want to go into it, but they are going to call me back. My view is a simple OS reinstall is in order.

Good, at least you talked with Blackberry. If it's working for others, and not for you, it must be something that can be fixed.

Did you back up your phone before the update? If so, you can try the reinstall of the old version and try again to see what happens. If that doesn't do it, be patient, and see how BB can assist when they reconnect with you.

Ok I'm done. You don't seem to realize that you never once did anything but blame everyone or someone you never asked for help till now. I have to say I can't help but I seem to have finally made you ask the only question you needed to. Can I get help? Not who I blame is::: blah blah cry cry!

You should really join the Apple Camp. Nothing is Apple's fault it's the customer's fault. Sorry I do the update as asked by AT&T and Blackberry and my Apps don't work. Sorry that isn't my problem....

Get an iPhone..

Dude. This is fun but I'm done. Take it to att service center show them the problem they will swap it out for another or order you one. You did no side loading should not be an issue. Unless you have physical damage to it.

I believe it may be att. I have 2 friends with z10s on T-Mobile and they can BBM voice chat and video chat via wifi or 4g. I only stuck with att and blackberry because I have unlimited data plan that's been grandfathered in so long ago I still have and continue to get rollover minutes. But att still refuses to allow me to video chat or voice chat via BBM via 4g. Wifi only so I can't wait to see if Skype works and whether they restrict me to wifi only as well, but I doubt blackberry had anything to do with that just like the data tethering block on my PlayBook it says contact att unlimited plans aren't allowed to tether.

Here too, says "You have the latest software." - not, still stuck behind the 10.0.9.422 VZW wall of blocking BB from moving forward...

"Meanwhile at Verizon HQ"... well done on the pic! lol

And it's shameful carriers take so long to get these updates out!!!

Posted via CB10 on my BlackBerry Q10

Awesome "Mean while at Verizon " I loled as well.
I'm on vzw as well.
Congrats AT&T peoples.

Posted via CB10

Once again is Verizon the winner of releasing the last a stupid update! Congratulations Verizon!

Posted via CB10 ~ Join the One And Only active News channel on BBM Channels just add C000E96C1 ~

No, they will still be there. You would only have to do that for a non official update (leak).

Posted via CB10 using my flick-ity keyboard :D.

What version is it? I'm on 10.1.0.2354 and I got the notice but when I click check for update it says I'm up to date.

Waiting for at&t to update :(

Thank you, that's what I figured. What a fool to think AT&T would have dropped the Maintenance Release already.

Need the 10.1 MR with ez unlock.

yup 4543 works very nicely. When VZW releases they are going to be like HUH no one downloaded it! cause we are all on leaks way advance of your stupid mentality.

My Z10 has been randomly going dark and having to completely turn it off and restart. July 4 the battery got
real hot just sitting in my pocket. All windows were closed. No open apps. At&t offered to replace phone but I asked for battery only. New battery arrived July 8 and within 2 hours phone started shutting down. They are sending replacement phone. Due in tomorrow. Was there an issue with the software that would have caused this? New to Blackberry, coming in from the iworld.

Yes, software...new OS should fix you up as it did many of us with your same problem.

Does anyone know if it is the same as the one that accidentally sent out a few weeks ago? Because I was able to get that one but when I tried to update it now it says I'm up to date.

Posted via CB10

Yes!!! It's official saw it on my phone and will comience download in t-minus 1 minute!!!!!

Posted via Z10 & CB10

Humm... There might be something behind this rolled out.

Why did AT&T wait so long and released it just at the same time of the BlackBerry Annual meeting ??

Thank you TMOBILE another AT&T customer thankful for your service that AT&T could not provide me as a loyal customer. Look out for 10.2 July of 2015 AT&T customers.

I have 10.1.0.2006 from t mobile sim card update on my att phone. Is this the same update? I got notification but says I'm up to date. I'm assuming same numbers. Couldn't see anything to compare though

Posted via CB10

Got my notice in the hub at 10am est. Stupid work blocks us from the network :(... hope they don't pull it before I can get it!

Posted via CB10 with my awesome Z10 or PlayBook

Yayayyyyyy love that finaly we have the new software I hope Z10 work better and have more apps I hope so

Posted via z10

Lol...don't get them started. (Happy for all the fellow AT&T people who are finally getting 10.1. Enjoy!)

Posted via CB10

Like I said you wish it was steroid. I already told you your mouth is a hell of a drug compels people to want to slap you. It be great if UT could give you discipline Heel.

Posted via CB10

Steroids+ignorance is a bad combination. Blurs the logic. Now, that being said, looking back on your posts from June 23rd, which contained racist remarks (in reference to Rodney King being beaten), as well as comments you made that could be deemed offensive to anyone on the site who may be a part of the LGBT community, in addition to threats you made towards me on that particular day, as well as today (Still feeling compelled?), I think we all see who REALLY needs to be disciplined by UT. I'm surprised you still have the nerve to post on the site after all of that nonsense. A fool is a fool, I guess. Get your act together and stop posting threats about slapping people, son. Hell, even women know to use fists when they fight. You sound like a little girl in grade school. Now, go crawl back under your rock of negativity and stop trying to ruin the everyone's positive vibe that received 10.1 today. We don't care that you switched to T-Mobile. So stop posting your wannabe commercial all over the site.

Posted via CB10

You are really so stupid first of all before stating erroneous information you should get your facts straight. I never once commented on hay LGBT I commented you as the fag who hides behind his letters to make your pathetic comments which I will say again no one cares for. You are the one that should feel ashamed and embarrassed writing on this forum after being such a hypocrite and saying everyone should relax about getting 10.1 of course after you were one of the few that were able to get first update only to brag about it. HYPOCRITE FAG. There I said it again. See only a stupid person and ignorant one like you would not understand that my words are directed to you! Stop trying to make this about everyone else and realize it's about you idiot. Again that is the reason people feel compelled to slap you because back on June 23 you were the one that began you bitchy crying all emotional about Rick James and when I states that UNLIKE Rodney King who took a beating and the. Said why don't we all get along you are the little B$tch that at the mere thought of meeting with me one on one would scream those words. But of course you call your self Blue Heel and as you should but your real name should be Big A$S for not understanding the message and making out to seem like it about everyone else. Bottom line is you like to antagonize and when I decided to respond all of a sudden you got your panties in a bunch. Let me ask you what do you prefer Tampons or Pads? Not only are you a troll and hypocrite after writing cap about how all should calm down about not having 10.1 update of course only after you had updated yours but now you go again on your little Menstrual cycle rage! Realistically you say I use roids the reality is maybe you need some to help with your Cycle. Said it before will say it again if we took a poll on here for you and I to meet one on one I am sure members would love for you and I to settle any difference but of course you won't because unlike Rodney King who took beating like a man you would lose sleep at the mere thought. There I said it again. Now I also said that day I would not waste my time with A$S like the Heel because you'd be a no show and it would be a waste of my time. As for your whole me being with TMOBILE thing again you are like all these tabloids writes out of your A$S I knew you were stupid but you just confirmed it to all. Now you want to talk about being miserable and ruining the vibe last I check my name does not start with Blue and a Heel on top of that. Just seeing you on thread ruins everyone's vibe!

Posted via CB10

Once again in regards to being a fool you proved that time and time again on the forums (Son!) with your NY street slang. You really are the Petri dish in New York City and on this forum (SON!)

Posted via CB10

It's no wonder the Z10 is not selling in the U.S. Look how long it took for them to make 10.1 available. Most people have been waiting for some bug fixes and new features, even Skype!

2019 here. Update yes but still behind. ATT seems to be going out of their way to annoy BlackBerry users.

Posted via CB10

Damn, just realized my company cut the open wifi so I can't download now. Guess I'm headed to a restaurant for lunch to bum some wifi so I can update. I'd hate if for some "Reason" I'd miss out from this update JIC ATT finds a reason to pull back this release.

Posted via CB10 from my Z10 or PlayBook!

I can update and I am trapped at work without wifi! I have grandfathered unlimited Internet, why can't I just update!

Via CB10

I have the "GRANDFATHERED" Unlimited EVERYTHING Plan as well! LOVE IT... I refuse to let them touch it even if there are old BIS fees included! It would cost more if I allowed them to "UPDATE" my plan with the charges for data that they have now...

Just did the install. We will see how things work out this time

Posted via my BlackBerry Z10 on AT&T

About dang time! I have been tweeting them about the update over the past few days.

Posted via my Z10 on busted AT&T

My update says 743mb. Looks like it dropped as soon as the AGM commenced. Will be updating as soon as the meeting is over.

About time AT&T.

AT&T and Verizon seem to be the special carriers amongst all the carriers in the world, and by special I mean retarded.

Posted via CB10

Now I just need to get wifi access somewhere. Can't get the update via at and t only.

Posted via CB10

I'm running 10.1.0.2354. Right now! I saw the notification! Would anybody know when 10.2 is coming out! Thats probably the only time my Z10 will update unless they put one out higher then 2354!

Posted via CB10

So greedy. AT&T is generous to give us this version of 10.1 and you already want 10.2. We'll just have to wait until next year :-/

Posted via my Z10

Why is this OS update only .2074? I'm from Singapore and the latest update I got a few weeks ago was .2354. What is the difference?

Just reading this post and I'm laughing at the finishing words regarding Verizon LOL... However thanks for informing everyone. about to update now!

Posted via CB10

Hey anybody know the difference between 10.1.0.2354 and 10.1.0.4543? Is there much of a difference. Between these two os?

Posted via CB10

FYI when the installation completed and I was prompted to restart, my Z10 showed the initial Blackberry logo on the screen for an inordinate amount of time - more than a couple minutes. I was worried it had locked up. I left it alone for at least 5 minutes and it did eventually boot up; I knew as I heard a email notification go off. Unlocked screen to find the notice that the update was complete.

Short version: if it appears locked up on start screen after restart, be patient!

Since I work night shift most of the people I might text with are asleep, so I just tried sending one to myself. Worked. What specifically is not working for you, more details please?

You can all thank ME for this update... I finally finally got aggravated enough with AT&T to take action and get 10.1 on my own...via a T-mobile Sim... I spent 2 hours YESTERDAY afternoon on a EXTRA long lunch hour... and poof today that magical update appears! You are all welcome!

Is there a 10.2 leak out? Or is it the 10.2 alpha where you have to side blackberry world?

Posted via CB10

Yep it's official .....

Verizon once again proves that they are the worst at pushing updates.

Posted via my bad azzzz "Z"

+1K^

BB really needs to focus hard on this issue, as they cannot keep letting these carriers buy time for the competition by keeping BB OS updates behind bars for so long.

I just read on Twitter that AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint are releasing a sizeable software upgrade (374 MB)for the Samsung S4. Jeez it has only been out for a couple of weeks. Guess we tested that OS update quick. Thats why you can't get it on VZW too many S4's using the bandwith. :(

My update failed! I tried to do it on the blackberry link software same thing.. now every time I try to update it on my phone it says update failed and there is a button that says cancel but it doesn't do anything!

Posted via CB10

you're probably going to have to reload from the blackberry.com/updates website and restore to factory to fix that. that's what I had to do

If you have the previous 10.1 release from AT&T (10.1.0.2006), today's update is not going to be available to you for download, but you will get the notification anyway. Another blunder by AT&T.

I had the. 2006 update and when I checked for updates, it showed that I had a 25 mb update. Installed and update was successful.

Posted via CB10

Trying that today, thanks for the info. Just don't want to have to do it this way for 20+ devices.

Personally I was hoping for another 60-90 days of delays. It's fun being the absolute last people on the planet to get an update. Thanks AT&T!!

Posted via CB10

Installed 10.1 Installed Skype, - doesn't work, reboot still doesn't work, delete , reboot, reinstall.... doesn't open, what an epic FAIL!

Epic Joke ...
How About Europe (Portugal) ...
How many weeks ... months ... years we will have to wait BlackBerry.
Shame on You!

This update is almost starting to feel old on my Z10. How can a big communications firm like AT&T take so long for get something so simple done?

Posted via CB10

I'm calling att to cancel my line. I downloaded the update the first time around when they released it accidentally. Full of bugs copy paste is buggy and I can't post to Facebook which is where I run my business from. So today I woke up with an invite to download the update. GUESS WHAT? I'm at the latest software already when I go and check. So they waited and waited to release a buggy version of 10.1. I'm done with att

Sent from the Amazing Z10

Well, that's probably why AT&T pulled the initial update right away. It must have been a buggy version and not ready for release.

Posted via CB10

LOL. Way to go AT&T. If your not first your last! At least the AT&T users can finally officially enjoy 10.1.

hi, anybody else having issues with texts messages after the update ??

i cant open texts or reply to them at ALL

Think I'll just wait till others have updated and see what they think after the dust settles...not gonna hit the button just yet...been waiting this long...what's another day or two

Posted via CB10

Hmmm, good plan, maybe BB should provide clean updates through Link without carrier tinkering....

I haven't had any problems, downloaded this morning. Just be patient it takes a while. After phone restarts the bb logo will be up for a few minutes. Don't panic, just let it do its thing.

via CB10 on my AT&T Z10

Why cry about 10.1? In south africa the service providers dont even know its their responsibility to roll out the updates for bb10. They keep telling me to go online and read how to update. Stil on 10.0

Posted via CB10

I don't understand why there is such a disparity of experiences with this release. I've read that Skype doesn't work. I just upgraded and installed Skype and it works perfectly for me.

Posted via CB10

They're too busy following that "Can you hear me now?" guy around to produce quick, effective OTA updates.

Lol, literally days after I finally decided to install a leak for the first time.......

Posted via my Cyberdyne Systems T-800

At least Verizon has the Z10, Meanwhile at Sprint..........................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................Do i need to say more?

With the 10.1 update some users found that a reboot, in addition to the new install reboot was what was needed to fix their problem.

Question anyone notice in the my world when you click on the BBM app it says it's not available for this device but it still allows me to open app? Is there an issue here and will it affect my BBM when using?

Posted via CB10

I got the update back when they "accidentally" released it. So I am not getting any message now. It says I am up to date with 10.1.0.2006. What version are all of you getting?

Wow they delay this for months on grounds of "testing" and its loaded with bugs...........

Posted via CB10

I was on the line with both at&t & blackberry yesterday for hours, trying to be them to push out the 10.1 update. Good to see that they took care of it.

Posted via CB10

Should we install this AT&T release 10.1 even if we are running a higher numbered leak? When I tried to update, I got the message that I already had the current software installed. I have 2342 leak.

While on the subject, is the leaked 10.2 clean enough for normal operation or is it buggy?

Yup, FB app needs a LOT of work, just use m.facebook.com or touch.facebook.com - bookmark it - very fast, nice and you'll have all you'll need there.

Okay, this is weird.
I got notification for upgrading to 10.1.0.2019, 334MB. Out right now, shall update in the night.
I'm on AT&T, in San Francisco Bay Area.
No previous leaked OS ever installed.
Heck I got this phone just a week back.

Posted via CB10

I think the fact that I can now see emojis is my favorite feature for this update! Oh and that auto correct is green! I love it!!

Posted via CB10

oh my God , finally, hey USA your getting a great OS and hope we get the 10.2 at the same time !

Downloaded 334mb uodate, but have another update (same version 10.1.2019) but for another 1047mb. Anybody else?

Posted via CB10

I finally got the notification from AT&T this morning. I have 2019. I thought I was modern until I read some comments here that there's a 2045 and even 45__. Oh wells. I'm glad for the changes and larger words on the frets as well as the different blue circle of the cursor. A bit annoyed though that it takes several taps or more just for the cursor to appear and sometimes the circle doesn't always pop up either. Oh wells. Nothing's perfect.

Posted via CB10

Ok CrackBerry Team I'm in need of some answers...

I was one of the lucky one's to catch the at&t wrong day update and my beloved Z10 was running the 10.1.0.2006 version, since then I've had to perform a complete wipe ( my choice and my wrong doing with a App) but when I finish the process my Z10 jump to version 10.1.0.2025 ( no a single complain from my end )... fast forward to today when I see this news you clearly stated that at&t officially go out today with v 10.1.0.2074 when I checked my Z10 says that I was running the latest version ( remember! 10.1.0.2025 ) then I try a different route and verify BLACKBERRY Link and to my surprise I found a update available but it clearly said v 10.1.0.2019 so I asked you very calm.......... wich one is the real deal???

Pardon me but I'm pretty sure that v 2025 is higher than v 2019 so if my Z10 have already the 2025 install then why BBLink have a lower version available???

Can anyone please share some light with this?!?!

Follow Me on Twitter @mongezaurio

Free advice: install OS leak 4543 and be done with the carriers. It's worth it. Trust me. Don't think of it as a leak. Think of it as a "Direct from BlackBerry Update".
