More new features turn up in OS 10.2.1 including contact profiles, Q10 speed dial, new BBM icons and more

By Adam Zeis on 13 Nov 2013 01:26 pm EST

OS has been taking over the forums with eager users jumping on what seems to be one of the best leaks to date. We've already seen some of the awesome new features included on OS 10.2.1 and we've been hard at work diving deeper into the OS to see what else we could find. As it turns out, 10.2.1 is bringing a load of new features for BlackBerry users. It's almost like BlackBerry put in every little thing that users have been asking for and we definitely won't complain about that. 

If you haven't been following along in the forums with all of the latest news, we've seen some crazy improvements that BlackBerry is planning for the OS 10.2.1 update. In addition to features like pic password, APK installs and custom quick settings, some other goodies have been spotted as well. 

Open App from Lockscreen

For starters, you now have the ability to open an app directly from the lockscreen notification. Simply swiping the app icon will bring you directly to the app, not just the homescreen like before.

Contact Profiles

Full, custom contact profiles are back. You can now set alerts for each contact for email, phone calls, text messages, BBM and social apps.

New BBM Emoticons

BBM is sporting some new emoticons as well including a rainbow, moon, camera, martini glass and happy wavy guy. Very cool.

Contact Groups

In OS 10.2.1 you'll have the ability to create and set groups within the contacts app. Please and thank you.

Q10 Speed Dials

Finally the Q10 has the option for speed dials from the home screen. Just press and hold a key to assign a speed dial.

Device Monitor

The new Device Monitor (listed under settings) shows your battery stats, CPU use, memory and storage. Very cool insights.

What did you find?

Are you running the leak? What other new features have you spotted? Head to the forums at the link below and let us know what you've spotted!

Discuss more in the CrackBerry forums



Not to long ago finally the 10.2 update was released for Rogers which a lot of us were waiting for and now the 10.2.1 update were waiting for.

Keep those features coming BlackBerry!!!


Who cares about all that stuff. I want a trunk monkey! When it hears someone bad mouth BlackBerry out comes the trunk monkey with the tire iron. :)

Posted via CB10


Hahahaha! Best series of vids I've ever seen online.

Sometimes I wish these leaks would stop coming out because now I want it! It sounds amazing.


Lol thats the point its to keep you interested


So did BlackBerry fix the bugs on:

1) Buggy Outlook Contact importing into BB10 device?

2) Missing/Duplicate/Triplicate repeating contact bug?

Even the "legacy" and "End Of Life" and "obsolete" (as defined by BlackBerry) Bold 9900 did not have these bugs!


Love it!!!

Posted via CB10


no kidding, never seen major updates come out this fast, usually every year for apple and google, BB is spitting updates fast, but really they need to in order to bring BB10 up to a new level, bring back the core BB feel of efficiency and the ability to customize like legacy devices. BB10 had the feeling like they were holding back like apple does as far as beign able to change things, now all they need to bring back is the ability to change themes


It rocks!

Q10  OS


Hi did you install it on a Q10? Is it branded? Did you she autoloader? Thanks!


Full functionality on the Q10, Q5, Z30, and the STL-100-1 variant of the Z10. Other variants of the Z10 will NOT be able to make calls or use the mobile network.

Posted via CB10


Correction: The leak is currently not available for the Z30.


Best leak indeed!!! I never installed a leak so far, as the rumored changes were never that "sexy" to do all the work... but this one honestly... think I'll finally give it a try...

And the best is, in case something goes completely wrong, just straight to the crackberry forum for great help from a great community...!

Sorry for hijacking, btw...

Posted via CB10


I also made this thread with all the bugs, features and fixes.. The other thread has great screen shots, but is difficult to sift through for information.


Thanks freeze. I'm going to go over the bugs and fixes. Do you think we will get this leak via Sachesi?

Verizon Q10 with 10.2 :-)


I have added your question to the question area of that post, but the answer is: Most likely no, because this is a beta (leak) and the files over Sachesi are official releases (at least somewhere in the world).


Thanks for taking the time to provide us with changes, bugs, fixes and the new features you gathered from other threads and from your own testing.

Very much appreciated :)

Definitely like how you can now re arrange hub accounts in this update. Always wanted that


Nice work meester (sp).


would be nice to also have a default profile. gonna take forever to edit over 900 contacts


Homescreen speed dial FTW. :-)


On the Z10, the speed dial works as well, but only from the Dialing Pad in the phone app. Not if you just pop-up the menu on the homescreen.

That's been available from before 10.2.1 from what I can see on my device (on Z10STL100-4/, but don't know when it was implemented.

Immediately thought of you when I saw the Q10 speedial. :)

Posted via CB10


Good! lol, you know I'm happy. :-)


I've never noticed before, but FTW is the opposite of WTF . . =)


And they are used for opposite situations, so it works! :-D


Now we just have to wait until AT&T will release this... Or I guess when the official leaks I'll side load it...


Group contact is so important, I'm glad that BlackBerry is moving forward!!!

Can't wait to get this for my Z10!!

Posted via CB10


Be careful. Apparently phone calls don't work on some device models. It's still an early build.

I would load this leak, some drop it for the 3

Long live BB!

I need a Z10 download of this that will let me use my phone as my daily driver and still make phone calls and shit, i need radio! I wanna download this leak so bad

Posted via CB10


AH, that's no problem. Just go buy an STL100-1. ;-)


Haha yeah! The model that gets shafted on every and all other leaks!

This update looks huge, hopefully BlackBerry is just rolling this out ASAP.

Posted via CB10


Now that BlackBerry has got bb10 rolling, all their expertise now seems focused on improvements that show real potential to make the OS even more distinctive, more productive. Keep movin'. Come back to BlackBerry....

The Aficionado

So blackberry waits until now to start listening to their customers.. OK :)

Presumably the q5 gets speed dial too, they just didn't mention it because hardly anyone is using a q5... ?

Posted via CB10


I'm sure it works on the virtual keyboard as well.

The phone app got a major overhaul. I for one love the nice full screen picture ID.


They've been listening. You just can't code this stuff in an instant. Everything we've been asking for has to be designed, coded, integrated, and tested so it takes time.

Wow, 10.2.1 looks huge! almost seems like there are more improvements here than 10.2.

Can't wait for this. It's so great that they actually listen to feedback .

For sure. Plus, they seem to have cleaned up all bugs. It's been running perfectly for me for the last 24 hours.

Awesome. This might been my first leak to install. Email Groups? Just what I have been looking for. Now I know why I couldn't find it before, it wasn't there. LOL

Posted via CB10


I need to see at least the next 3 calendar items on the lock screen! PLEASE!!!!!!!!! Messages aren't the most important thing! I need to know the next few events without having to unlock the phone - one isn't enough when events are close together, and another more important event is upcoming but cannot be seen!!!
Why can't I tap on the clock to see my upcoming events?

Contact groups and profiles, that's great! :-)


Hi Adam:

Great article. Thanks for the info. BlackBerry needs to pick up on its marketing and show off these and other features. Do you or anyone at CrackBerry have a contact at Verizonwireless to see when they are going to be sending out the 10.2.1?




I love updates :D

Hehehehehe!BlackBerry finally get down to marketing!!!

Incurable Q10 Syndrome


Open App from Lockscreen

For starters, you now have the ability to open an app directly from the lockscreen notification. Simply swiping the app icon will bring you directly to the app, not just the homescreen like before.

I don't get it...

Posted via CB10


Do but I don't think this is a good idea as this was an issue on general iOS 7 that allowed people to access the phone from the looked screen without going through the security.

Posted via CB10


It means that when you unlock your phone, instead of swiping up from the bottom of the screen, you can swipe from the notification icon and when it unlocks it will go right to that notification instead of the home screen. As long as they took the right amount of time to ensure that you still need to enter the password before moving forward, I'm totally on board with this.

I hope in the next leak battery percentage is not only in the peak and the lock screen, but remained in the home screen menu bar. I think it's more efficient.


FINALLY!.. The rainbow! :)))))

Some are indicating that more android and/or BB apks are now available for ported apps. Have not been able to test whether sideloaded or BBW's Endomondo will utilize a paired HRM or whether Tether for Android works, but these would be Earth rattling changes.


I can't wait to hear about more stuff involved with the update.

Can't they just release this already... I don't even have 10.2 official from ATT yet and now this... cmon.


Finally! Can anyone confirm if custom profiles include led customisation?

My BB9930 does so much of what I want I'm reluctant to go for the Q10. But as soon as Verizon gets it's 10.2 act together I'll probably sucumb.

What is the purpose of a lockscreen when you can still access stuffs displayed on it? Might as well not having one.

Posted via CB10


They can be turned off.



For some the lockscreen is enforced by your IT. I'm guessing your work apps won't be available until you type the password.


I'm all about the emoticons! I want like 50 more!

Who here doesn't have conversations with pure empticons?!



I was thinking the same thing. They should get rid of the current ones and have TAT re designed all the emojis.

With all of these features it should be called 10.3 by now! Awesome!


This looks promising. Now the only thing that will suck is having to wait for the official release in Tmobile Usa. We still haven't received the 10.2 update and I don't trust myself (nor do I have the patience) with leaks.

Hello! How did you load it? Did you use autoloader? Is there a link? Thanks!


I'm still missing 2 features that I used to have on my palm that is very useful. That is;

1. To be able to check off the tasks or events that I have planned for accomplish in my calendar.

2. To do a phone look up in the calendar when I need to call or contact someone for a particular task or meeting. Now i have to copy & paste their phone number on the calendar manually.

Hi Adam:

I forgot to ask earlier, with the 10.2.1 with regard to email setting, has BlackBerry stored the feature where the user can choice to delete the email either 1. just on the device 2. just on the server or 3. both?
This is a key feature I hope they have restored.

Let us know please and thanks.


MJ Badagliacco

My understanding is that was a BES feature and not available without BES. But I could be wrong!
I want that feature back too!


I want the choice to delete from device and/or server also. I hate clogging up my phone with emails, but like to keep them on my server.

I would love to see the hub get reset once we leave it and then go back to it!

Anyone else have a problem with rotation? My app icons do not rotate and bbm does not rotate. But bbm will rotate when I access via hub! Annoying.

Does anyone have insider info on an update release date, specifically Rogers?

Posted via CB10


While it's great that we finally get speed dial, it's very disappointing that it's only for dialing numbers, and doesn't include launching apps and toggling settings. I was hoping that the feature would be worth the long wait. It isn't. IMO.

Posted via CB10


I hope this update will also include the common sense options in contact as well such as Mobile 1, Mobile 2, Mobile 3,.... Right now you can't even tell which number you want to send an SMS as there are no numbers on any contact classification.

Anyone see that issue where you text a contact non-stop for many days and you get it where it lags?
I found a trick instead of restarting the entire hub where you swipe down 5 times, you just swipe down 3 times with a conversation with the freezing contacts conversation open and it will refresh it for you rather than you waiting like 10 minutes for it to refresh.


Check your emails, ffs!


I don't understand this "custom profiles" feature.

The OS has had per-contact notification customization since at least 10.1. What is new here?

What *I* want is global, custom notification profiles (not just "silent" or "vibrate only" etc) that change EVERYTHING at once, like legacy BBOS, and can be assigned to "bedside mode" if desired. Based on the screenshot on this post, that is not what is being offered here.

All I see are 2 added profile notification categories: text messages and "other messaging". Phone, email and BBM already existed.


Awesome new features! Especially speed dial! Can't wait to load it! Too bad I can't load it with a mac! :(

Posted via CB10



If your MAC os is fairly current you can use BootCamp [part of MAC os] to boot into a partition created for Windows. I side load all the time using this method.


Its good that 10.2.1 is coming but can it increase the battery timing??

Posted via CB10


When will this update be available for T-Mobile on BlackBerry Q10?

Posted via CB10


Good news on new features. I would love to schedule your profiles. So at a certain time your profile would change. Example: i could set it to change to vibrate after 10 pm and back to normal at 8:30 am.


Can I remove the sim and update the os 10.2.1. Is it possible as my carrier has not yet carried the push and as usual it's going to be quite late
Or do I wait for the official push..?

Just can't get excited about this because it'll be years before I get to see it on AT&T. The upgrade path issue really needs to be dealt with.

I feel like I'm stuck in the stone age with the 10.1... and leaks are not for me, so it's not a valid option.

Um... see the forum. Loading this on your device is as easy as hooking your device to PC with USB cable and double clicking the installer.


Headless apps ability, me want!!! Also, I'd like to see a dedicated camera shutter button like my legacy BlackBerrys.


I still want sound Profiles that I can add contacts too; not just custom sounds for each contact.

The biggest thing I've found so far, is that "Share to YouTube" now works for Google Apps accounts!


What a surprise?
Why didn't BB put those features from the first day of BB10???
They are not new... WHY?


So no news as to when 10.2 will come to Verizon, I guess the only way to get it is to buy the z30.

HELP!! Phone doesn't vibrate and ring at the same time anymore!!!!!

I'm using the Q10 since June and I like it very much. I do have a small problem though, since the last update My phone doesn't seem to vibrate and ring at the same time. It doesn't matter what I do it suddenly just stopped working at the same time. I tried almost everything, taking the battery out, turning vibration off and on again, but still nothing. It does work separetly.

Does anyone know what the problem might be or how to fix this? It's pretty annoying.

Posted via CB10


"Contact Groups"! Yes!!


Whoa! A speed dial! Ahead of their time, they are...

On BES activated devices free-busy lookups are back in the work perimeter (activated with exchange)

Does any body Know whether public folder support is planned?

Posted via CB10


Finally...I gave in and installed the software release...worked like a charm..even on BES and everything restored after backup. Took about an hour for everything to sync back. Loaded Amazon and 1Mobile and now downloading some of my faves...ooVoo is kinda sketchy on both but Instangram is very stable and so is TMZ...still hunting, I was skepticle bu now I can sow off apps on the BB. How cool is that.


I have the same leaked OS and I install the Android Runtime 4.2.2 but when I download and try to install 1mobile it crashes and said 'instalation stalled'... Dont know what Im doing wrong... would you help me please.? Thanks..


Sorry if mentioned already, but Data (cellular and wifi) monitoring should built in too.


I've found a new lock screen when I'm paired with my Volkswagen. It's got the VW logo and list of things you can do while paired. "Hands Free Calling - Media..." Sort of neat, but I'm curious how/why it got there.

Loving the leak so far on my Q10.


Oh wow there is so much new stuff I'm like a kid at Christmas and can't figure out what to do first! I like the different sounds on the keyboard depending on if your going forward or back or space/shift/flick, sounds like group of woodpeckers when I type fast. But I want to try out this stuff they list for photos like face detection for focusing on a person, grid lines to align photo landscape, and peeking at the last picture I took to see if I like it. Now if I can just figure out how to use all these new features lol.


Is there a thread where we can post ideas for future improvements

If this has already been suggested then apologies but it would be a great option to be able to pin open app windows (e.g. Weather) to stop it from moving down the queue when other apps are opened or from accidently being closed that way it sticks to the position it has been pinned



For Q10 would like to see the return of:
* Application launch with shortcut key instead of search
* Notification custom categories creation (in addition to stock "Normal", "Phone Call Only", "Vibrate Only", "Silent", and "All Alerts Off".
* Holster silencing - when device is holstered option to mute all sounds like when you go to a meeting.
* Mapping the three media buttons to perform additional functions.

I love everything BlackBerry is doing with the upgrades. Excited really. But there are some old homerun functions that shouldn't be left behind.
By the way, if you know of any apps that can help to do any of the above (or if I just missed the options altogether in 10.2.1), I'm all ears and could use your help. At least that would be something to have in the meantime. :)
