The new BB 10 operating system which is incorporated in the two phones Z10 and Q10 don't work with BIS, that's what doesn't thrill me, so it means you will keep rocking data plans with it. Apart from that they got the strongest BB battery life EVER, 8MP camera, a huge RAM so no more hanging and all.

Don't think U'll have to cut as U can get ur micro sim from ur service provider. More like an iphone sim slot which requires a Micro sim.

It's okay. Most smart phone now uses smaller sim.

You don't exactly have to cut your sim.... You can just buy a mirco sim card..

Akinkunmi Adegbenro said...

@Ogechi Okoye BB Z10 uses micro sim, and because you have to cut your sim doesn't mean the device it self is not good. Just saying... Most phone manufacturers are now switching to Micro and nano sim cards. 5 years from now you may have to change completely to micro or nano sim cards. Iphone 5 uses nano sim which is even smaller than that of BB Z10.

Eerrr aunty Ogechi,u don't ave to cut Ur sim ok,u simply get a nano sim..n the phone is awesome..so don't bad mouth it just bcos u can't afford it..lol

The phone is suave..The processor speed is faster than iphone5, yes iphone has facetime and Z10 has video call and voice call(free) add-on .It uses a microSIM. The minuses are the apps viper , whatsapp aren't available.teh phone na amebo though . You can get BB pins of all your fb contacts (if they use fb for BB) I hope naijas would be able to enjoy the 4G network to it's full capacity. I've had this phone since the beginning of Feb and trust me it's a phone to have

I think they do come with BIS, the difference is unlike before its now optional, you don't have to put it if you don't want to, not everyone wants BIS...some do, some don't, so the choice is yours

Nice one! I think Oge now knows micro chips are in existence, just like people who are busy abusing her now knows too simply because they were opportuned to know through her questions. Interesting! Kudos to airtel. The developmental changes are welcome.
