VZW support,

OS update 10.2 is about finalized and it is absolutely amazing with an incredible amount of added features. If one is interested, they can go to Crackberry to see many (and there are indeed many) of the additional features being added in this update, simply amazing. BB10 users will be very satisfied, that is, if VZW won't delay, again.

The question to VZW support is, are you readying your resources to release this update to your customers before TMO, ATT and others beat you to the punch again, thus angering your customers even more with an excruciatingly long wait for this very soon to arrive OS update? Here's your notification ahead of time to get and be ready. This one, will be, a really BIG deal if you delay it because this update coming is incredible and your customers will not tolerate waiting for it this time around.

No excuses....

Looking forward to upgrade. Enjoy my bbz10. Continuing to learn about features. Encouraging BBM for my siblings, work associates,  and offspring who are iPhone people. Staff of my office enjoying their Z10 for our communications. Love absence of back button, interface, tiles and Hub. Great device of business user.

Good news. I hope VZW would release OS 10.2.1.xxx, not 10.2.0.xxx like other Carriers.  It takes me a long time to wait for an official update from VZW.

The update is a game changer,  Faster response, better "flick" response on the keyboard, and best of all adding android .apk's without sideloading. I love seeing the Netflix icon on my menu.
