BB10 … Some thoughts
- Inbound Calls – is Picture ID for my contacts now full screen? (I don’t mind if the picture is cascaded behind on-screen information related to the phone app).
- IS the Hub still accessible while on a Call?
- Can I jump to the Hub while on a conference call and jot down notes? (jump to speakerphone/BT headset for the call).
- Can I enter a new appointment/meeting during that call … and most critically if I’m NOT in a data connection (WLAN/3G/LTE) will it automatically Sync when I’m in coverage/connected immediately and seemlessly in the background?
How do we troubleshoot Sync’ing issues: One-Way or Bidirectional?
How do I perform a Soft-Reset vs a Hard-Reset?
Is there 2 levels of Hard-Reset; 1 where settings remain, the other where restore to factory remains?
If I perform a Hard Reset will settings for ActiveSync remain, just the data being wiped in order to auto restart sync from scratch?
Are we STILL stuck with full wipe to have IT Policy? Or will the IT Policy refuse the device to be used when wiped with policy on it until local connection to a new DesktopManager with corporate user authentication?
(think of high rate of thefts of a desirable device).
Will RIM directly support SIM unlocking to the end user going forward?
The most critical thing that RIM needs to address is BIS! How often do end users, and recently corporations switch providers where a user must delete their personal emails sync’ing to a device and then are required to set up their personal email address again? Most IT departments will not support personal email setup inquiries or problems with personal emails unless it affects corporate email setup/use. In the latter most cases IT will just simply remove the offending personal email (BIS) setup entirely.
The issue lies in AppWorld and the account used to register with it. My AppWorld download history (for both BB7/BB6/BB5 apps and a few on PlayBook was registered to my previous carrier account email address BBoi@rogers.blackberry.net. Since its been months (12/15?) since I used a BB I’m heavily considering going back to BB, sincerely, yet my email address is no longer valid since I’m now on Telus Mobility. How will I restore my apps, contacts, notes, BBM since their all related to that address?!
