Disclosure: As a member of the Verizon Lifestyle Bloggers, I recently received a BlackBerry Z10 and accessories to test out and share ways that I use my cell phone to make life easier. There was no other compensation. I am a long time Verizon customer, and all opinions are my own.
In March, I was invited to NYC for a Verizon Wireless Life Style Blogger event. Unfortunately, I was not able to attend because it was during Passover. While I was home, I watched the #VZWBuzz Tweets of my fellow life style bloggers as they learned about new items available through Verizon Wireless. The hottest item was the sneak peek at the new BlackBerry Z10 phone.
A short time after this, I received a giant package from Verizon and BlackBerry. It was an amazing array of items to use with my brand new Z10 phone.
This was my first experience with a BlackBerry phone. As someone that is used to setting up other smartphone varieties, there was a bit of a learning curve here. Thankfully, there is a wealth of information on the Z10’s page over at Verizon. In addition to this, they have more videos about phones and services on their YouTube channel. Here is one in case you are not familiar with the features on the new Z10.
The initial set up of the Z10 was not difficult. Once I had my BlackBerry account set up, I was able to view the main screen. From here, I immediately went to BlackBerry World to look for some apps. The first one that I installed was Kindle. You never know when I may want to read on the go, especially while waiting for the kids outside of school.
The Z10 also reminded me about another service that Verizon Wireless offers. If you are not aware, Verizon offers Wireless Workshops. These may be completed online or in stores to help you learn to use your phone features. While I have never done any of these personally, I love that the option is there.
More of my thoughts on the Z10 coming soon, along with some features and apps that I enjoyed using. I would love to hear your experience with BlackBerry, their apps, and whether or not you have used a Verizon Wireless Workshop.
