Easy - while on the call, flick you finger up from the bottom edge of the screen upward. It will make the call screen an active tile. You can now get to every other application.

With old phone you can click on the home button while on a call and read emails and textmsgs,

Can you please give me directions on how to?

oh I guess I will be staying with 9930. I thought I wanted the phone but I switch to much to try it now. I didn't want to stay with sprint but it looks like they are the only ones so far who's getting the Q10 bummer.

As far as I know the other major carriers will be getting the Q10 also. Don't give up yet.

So I got my black Z10 from VZW yesterday. Thankfully I am not having trouble reading the html emails - so no new contacts needed for now.
I'm slowly getting used to the keyboard and flicking. So far the main thing I miss is all the notification options. Overall really liking the device!

Emails are not the problem for me. But I can't find the optimum browser font that works good enough for most pages. Not to mention BBF.

Still NJBB is right, though an unfinished BlackBerry beats the alternatives for me.

So today....

The BlackBerry Z10 Tour Bus was coming to a Verizon store about a half hour away.
Took a ride out. Scheduled from 11-4. Got there around 11:10 and there was no bus. Went and ran some errands, went back and the bus had just gotten there. I went into the store, walked around, found the Z10 (back room, next to some phones I'd never heard of), hung around while they started to set up. Hung out until 11:45 and left.

As usual, they were late delivering ;)

I was really hoping to chat with some experts, learn some tips, figure out what I can do with fonts, etc. But it didn't happen.

Oh well.

that sucks Nj. When we show up for an appointment, its hells bells if we're ten min late...for companies, one would think first impressions matter. Not so these days eh.?

I keep coming back to this thread to find something TRULY positive that will make me dump my 9900 and go Z/Q10. Gonna hang on for a while yet..might need 2-3 OS upgrades and a real OS (equalizing so to speak), upgrade to the PB before i jump in.

This is such a sad and depressing thread...

Incidentally, what's the "other board" you all are talking about?

Been working with the Z10 since it came out, and I love it. The email font is more than large enough. Web fonts work admirably, certainly better than the wife's iphone -- especially in reader mode. The 10 has well resolved my pet peeve with my 9900 -- rendering of web pages (which I resolved through Opera). Typing is amazing! I've been stubbornly stuck with physical keyboards since forever. The Z10 has made me a believer of its touch keyboard. Spell check and predictive text is truly uncanny, and getting better as we age together, as is using the flick command on the keyboard. Same with voice commands, which I successfully use in a consistent manner for emails and reminders (so far). And again, we're aging well together here as well.

I am not satisfied with everything on the 10, such as not being able to jump to the top or bottom of a page with a click of a button, having to answer a call with an awkward swipe instead of a trusty click of a button, or not even being able to save draft emails. However, I'm finding that much of my initial and subsequent dissatisfaction with the 10 was caused by my inability to successfully access its features. Including my initial inability to erase multiple emails.

BTW, I don't agree with much of the negative thinking on this thread. At least as far as I am concerned, the Z10 is a great phone, and I am glad that my feely button fetish didn't keep me waiting for the Q10.

OK, there's no explicit option for it, but...

While typing an email, hit cancel
A prompt will pop up, saying "Changes made! Discard unsaved changes?"
Options are Cancel, Discard, Save

Save will save as a draft. Shows up with a green "draft" icon in hub.
