Although the OS has been floating around in various forms for the past couple of weeks now, it looks to have finally gone official across the board in Canada for the BlackBerry Q10. Confirmed to be arriving on Rogers, Bell and TELUS devices folks who check for updates should see that software version 10.1.0.273 is available. Oddly enough, if you check your device you may find that it's already on this 'software version' but that doesn't mean you should dismiss the update.

In fact, you should download it because even though the software version is the same, the OS inside is not. Unless you've installed a leak or ran a customized autoloader, most BlackBerry Q10's in Canada should be running OS 10.1.0.1483 but with this download, even though the software version will remain unchanged, you'll end up being on OS 10.1.0.1720.

We realize a good lot of you might have already had this show up but if not, now is a good time to check for updates. The update received on my Q10 came in at 127MB, sound off in the comments if you weren't seeing it before but have now had it appear.

I know this is out of the content but I think that CrackBerry Nation can help me answering one question.
Why is that I can't download "Poynt" or "Flixster" from BlackBerry World? I am Currently running on that 10.1.0.1720 OS and 10.1.0.273 Software on my Z10 STL100-1 Model carrier : Digicel From Aruba if these information helps to answer.

Thanks for the heads up on Poynt!

Running the leaked 1762 on my Z10 and was able to download and install Poynt.

I haven't seen the Z10 update from Bell yet either. Slow on the draw I guess.

Yes, incredible isn't it. Strange that New Zealand telecoms dont sell the Z10 yet.

That's just outrageous

angrybear123

they just don't care much for BlackBerry. It's the same reason why the phones are sold in the dimly lit portion in the back of the store, why no staff member will ever guide you to it, and why if you ask for it, they'll try to sell you an iPhone. The US carriers believe BB10 will fail, so they are likely putting scarce testing resources into releasing updates for other things. They'll get around to testing the BlackBerry updates when everything else is taken care of. Don't hold your breath waiting for it.

This constant bullshit about US carriers "believing Blackberry will fail" and "hating Blackberry" is so ignorant. US carriers are fully backing Blackberry and are just pathetically slow updating any phone, not just Blackberry. Blackberry just needs to release the Q10 already (it's already proven that they're the hold-up) and everyone needs to stop bashing the "evil" US carriers that are hell-bent on destroying Blackberry.

When I win the Telus Q10 from CrackBerry, I will make sure I download this update

These simultaneous updates in Canada are further suggesting that the US carriers are playing politics with BlackBerry. If the major carriers can coordinate well enough to release TWO updates, one for each BB10 phone, then why has it been over a month since AT&T released 10.1 for the Z10 and still nothing for Verizon?

Thank goodness for OS leaks, that's all I can say.

Posted via CB10 & loving it!

HighwayBob

Huh? ATT released 10.1 when???? I'm on ATT and am on 10.0 with no updates available.

Posted via CB10

LMFAO AT&T is still on 10.0:)

For those on Rogers who have not receive notification of the 10.1 OS update just call technical support and they will email you a link to the OS update.

Sorry premature post. I'll get help for that. I meant to say that I got the 1720 OS version when 10.1 was originally released by Telus.

wilsonryanp

I have the same. Only on Bell, 1720 on the original 10.1 release.

When I check for software updates in my settings area, it says I already have 10.1.0.273 and my software is up to date. I've had this update for a while already. I have a Z10 on Telus.

I see the update on Telus. Any idea what's new in this update? My Q10 is working just dandy, I don't want to risk ruining anything unless it adds something noticeably useful.

Don't download if on Telus!!!!!!! Deletes APN and now I have no data unless on wifi

Speak to a telus tech level 2 it can be corrected.

OS 10.1.0.1720 was already available on Swisscom when I got my hands on my Q10 a week ago. Incredible how fast Swisscom has become releasing software on BB10 while on legacy BBOS they hardly ever pushed a software update! BB10 is such a blessing in many ways, but BlackBerry still has a lot of work to get done bugfixing and adding missing features. However I'm aware it takes a bit of time and seeing what BlackBerry has delivered so far makes me very optimistic.

djraz_official

Pffft already have the latest. Got it as soon as it came out last week. There is No other update on Telus.

BBFanatic4Life

If you lose APN settings just do a battery pull twice and that should fix the problem. Had the exact same issues where I lost my APN settings on my Z10 after updating to this software version and after some help in the forums, the trick was two battery pulls.

SpideysHero

Didn't work for me. Am I missing something?

You can always manually put them in

I'm hoping it comes through on Roger's AND my work doesn't block the update AND it fixes the issue regarding not being able to file sent work emails into folders the way EAS allows AND auto on/off is available. I don't think I'm asking for too much.

No updates for me yet I'm with rogers... been hitting the check for updates button on settings since last week... even if I connect on BlackBerry Link or website I can't find any 10.1 update... smfh this is ridiculous

Makaveli@Beta

Why are people posting about the Z10 when the title clearly says q10.

I really wonder if some of you know how to read.

Posted via CB10

DirtySantos

There was an update for Z10 too, but it looks like it was a pretty minor one (2 mb). bumps up the OS to 10.1.0.1720.

vicki1975

I'm with Rogers, I get the update when I plug into Blackberry Link, I update the device and but the OS number remains the same. It's like it's not updating....

luvsql

I connected to BB Link and it said it downloaded and rebooted my device but still shows .238 and version .1483. No 1720.

vicki1975

Same here.... :( and when I check for software updates directly from my Q10 it says I have the latest software.

kfroese

I'm on Bell. Same deal - tried twice with BB Link which reported successful install except phone still reports .238 and .1483. No OTA update is available. Tried battery pull and then BB Link again - same result. Still stuck on .238 and .1483 despite Link reporting successful installation.

Peter1246

On Bell in Canada, have loaded the leaked 1880. Works like a charm. When I check Settings for updates the message says that I have the latest update.

Posted via CB10

PowderJockey

Old software version was. 238 now 273. 1483 to 1720.

Nice.

ZED-10 For the person on the move!

How do I update my unlocked Z10 to 10.1 it's 100-1? Has anyone got the number of the official update and the latest leaked? Thanks in advance.

Still waiting on the update for Z10 from Bell too. Now I know why some people just can't wait and get the leaked versions ahead of the official release.

Supa_Fly1

This article is for the Q10 ... not the Z10 so you'll be waiting for quite a while.
(use BBLink to see if you're behind for an update)

cbdwolff7

I know it's nice and all to list these updates and releases. This is really starting to help me loose my value of Blackberry and the way they do business. Take care of the people who were in the line first and purchased your product. My Z10 from Verizon has had nothing. Yet they can push out these updates for a later product. This really shows how they care for the real supporters of there product, or maybe not. Maybe they just don't give a **** at all. As long as we buy they don't care. This could very well break the chain for me in my value of Blackberry. I want this, rebooting, freezing, locking up, non updating device to get what it needs, come on already.

spenny93

I have yet to see an update for my Q10 with rogers. I am currently running 10.1.0.238 . Should I be?

Honestly some people can't read. It CLEARLY says for the Q10 so why are Z10 owners so surprised they do not have an update yet ....

Haven't notice any heat issues. Whatsapp is now in the Hub as its own account, as opposed to being in the notifications hub filter like Skype. Haven't noticed anything else.

127.0.0.1

I called Rogers and they said there is no such update??? Tech said 10.1.0.238 is the latest official version for the Q10

Theo Groenevelt

10.1.0.273 shown here in Fort McMurray on Telus..in the Software Update in my settings. Too bad where I'm at, there ain't no WiFi..later I guess!

Yes. Finally from Rogers here in Ontario... well for me at least.

miketko

same here.. just got it on rogers in Ontario

BCMike

Yep I finally now see the update OTA on my devise (Rogers, Vancouver). I will try to run it while in a meeting this morning via link. The comments on the OTA install indicate it takes a loooooooong time. Hope wired 10/100 is better.

BCMike

When I got back from the meeting it was all good. Everything is as I left it except for a few bits of bloatware installed by Rogers and 4square. What does a 53 yo professional need with that? I'm deleting them in the hope that they won't return on next hard start. On the other hand, I do not see whatsapp in the Hub. I'd downloaded it and pinged a person I know with it just so I'd see if that happened when I updated to 273.

luvsql

I ran this last night and it said 116MB or so to download, then 997mb to install! What kind of update is this? It took 1.5 hours over a very fast wifi connection. Nothing is different. My FB news feeds is not showing recent updates, my previous issues are still issues. Aren't we supposed to get improvements with such a large update?

bbfanatic2012

On Bell. have release10.1.0.238 version 10.1.0.1483. When I check for updates either on phone or through Link, it says "software is upto date".

Frustrated. Ever since I updated to the new OS on my Q10, the option to share photos via text and facebook have been removed when you are in the photo itself. I wonder what else is missing? I am able to share a photo once I'm in the application but not from the photo gallery....hmmm
