i'm using the Q10 for two days and had a 9360 before. for me the OS10 it's freakin' complicated compared to OS7. and much slower - i mean i could do things faster on my 9360. using the calandar is a breeze, writing e-mails is a breeze. on the Q10 i have to click much more to do the same things.
can i use Q10 instead 9900 not loosing BB mail
