This isn't an idea, but found I had no other option to make a simple announcement.

Over-the-air software installation:

For Z10, Q10 & Q5 devices.

The download is 651 MB in size and takes approximately forty minutes to complete from start to finish (times will vary depending on your setup). OS version will read: 10.2.0.1791. You can get the download either over the air by going to Settings > Software Updates tap the button at the bottom of the screen labelled Check for Updates. Or you can get the update through Blackberry Link.

Using Blackberry Link:

If a new version of the device software is available for your BlackBerry device, it will be listed in the Settings view in BlackBerry® Link on your computer. From there, simply click Install Update to update your software.

Always perform a back up whenever installing an OS upgrade!

Unfortunately, I cannot comment on when each and every device will receive the software upgrade. It's definitely out there and as with all software upgrades, it's just a matter of time. Try again later this evening or tomorrow and let us know.

That's cool you think I'd have a better chance using BlackBerry link?

I can't say for certain that'll you will have a better chance, but it's worth a try. To be quite honest, I was reading another community members post about the upgrade and just went ahead and selected Check for Updates (on my Z10) and voila, the update notification was there.

According to mattjs' post, the software update began rolling out this week, I may have lucked out in getting the update early. I should also mention, credit goes to mattjs for bringing this information forward.

Not for nothing but try checking when your wifi is connected. I'm in Virginia at the moment (on wifi) and despite being on T-Mobile, a similar 10.2 update is showing.

I just realized that too. And I think it's because I'm running a leak 10.2 so this is grade would out me to the latest 10.2 official

It only upgrades (or downgrades in Chad's case) the files that are different from what is already installed.

I was on a hybridized 10.2.1 OS and mine was around 420mb I believe.

Has anyone been able to update their Q10 on Koodo yet? My Z10 got the update, but my wife's Q10 doesn't show it.
